    Information
    Barbaric Response is a robot from West Sussex built in 2002 where it entered Robot Wars series 6 from then on. It didn't have much luck in the UK Championships but it did however reach the Tag Team Terror final in Robot Wars Extreme 2 where they finished runners-up to Bulldog Breed and Robochicken. Barbaric Response has competed in a few events in the UK today as well after being retired for many years. Back after retirement at Burgess-hill 2008, it stunned everyone, beating Bigger Brother and Kronic on its way to the final where it was beaten by Iron-Awe 5. However, at the next event at Reading, it reached the final again and got vengeance on Iron-Awe 5 and beat them again a year later in Burgess Hill 2009 to become champions. Barbaric Response has definitely enjoyed a lot more success in the live events today after also finishing as semi-finalist in the FRA UK Championships 2009. The flipper is an awesome weapon in action against other robots.

    Hi there! You sound like you're in a very similar position to the one I was in back in 2017. When I started out, I only really had a drill and some basic

    threaded inserts work fine for lids just nothing that will be taking spinner hits, so main frame, Armour panels etc another method is using threaded aluminum

    Personally, I use threaded inserts for the lid of my FW these days but you could use barrel nuts I am sure.
