      Its speed and agility are its main advantage being combined with a very effective flipper. Six wheel drive is useful for pushing.

      Behemoth is a robot that has continued to fight on 16 years after its first ever appearance on Robot Wars in 1998, it was built in Hemel Hempstead near London by brothers Anthony & Michael Pritchard and their friend Kane Aston. Behemoth's best moments in Robot Wars have been reaching the semi-finals of Robot Wars series 2 and finishing as runner-up to Razer in the First World Championship, but suffered from bad luck from Series 4 onwards where it has been very unlucky in competition. Behemoth is in its eighth incarnation today as Evolution VIII with improvements to virtually every aspect of the design but maintaining much of the original machine.

      Most recently Behemoth was seeded sixth in the 2014 UK Heavyweight Championships and won the 2014 Tag Team Championship with The Saint.

      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

      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
