      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!

      Each stage is a multiplier. 8:1 x 8:1 = 64:1 so you'd want say a 2:1 on the first stage and then a 4:1 on the second.

      I apologize for all the questions, my math is absolutely atrocious, but would this mean that in order for me to get an 8:1 ratio, it'd basically be a

      To answer your questions based on my experiences with axe robots:



      Yes, it is feasible. I do exactly this 2 stage reduction

      So, with the redesign of the weapon system, I wish to put out a few questions to... well, anyone that does axe weapons done with a chain drive system.

      OK, so I've got a second transmitter which I've managed to bind Azriel to and that works fine. Batteries all charged and is good to go. In typical fashion
