    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.

    To echo what others have said, that is a great effort for a first build, well done. Using a piece of velcro to hold the link/fuse in place is fine; I
