    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!

    Hi Colin. The exhaust silencer sounds like a great idea When we were kids we used to put 'Cherry Bombs' on our Mini's, a robot themed one of those
