    Information
    13 Black is a robot from Leicestershire which was built for Series 5 of Robot Wars where it fell in the heats on a judges decision to Corkscrew. It was later re-modified for 2002 the following year where it had better success, causing a lot of carnage in its heat taking out Double Trouble and the seeded Stinger before falling in the Semi-final to Firestorm. 13 Black is armed with two fast powerful spinning discs which didn't just cause destruction to whichever robots came near it, but when 13 Black was flipped. The discs were designed to get traction on the floor and make it "crab walk" around the arena which always provided a laugh for the audience!

    Technically the locking bar should stop the weapon from activating by accident and as

    Hah, seems like what you have there is a steel bar bender! Look forward to seeing new BOB. Shame to think of BOB3 getting "retired" though,

    With Robodojo coming back. I've been back working on my robots, I'm going to retire BOB 3 by putting it in full combat, give it a good beating. Right

    Perhaps it's a stupid questing, but who are the admins? I tried sending a PM to 'fra", assuming that was the shared profile of the admins, but never
