    Information
    Barber-Ous 2'n a bit was built by Simon Rafferty, Guy Radford and Chris Watts from West Sussex. The first version was built in 2001 where it entered the fifth series of Robot Wars where it was beaten in the first round by Panic Attack and was then rebuilt to Barber-Ous 2 for the next series where it reached its heat final but lost to Hypno-Disc. This version is Barber-Ous 2'n a bit is Barber-Ous 2 but with a few modifications like shock-absorbant wheels. Barber-Ous 2'n a bit is well known for its spinning drum designed to look like a "twisty, turning, spiky barbers pole on its side on wheels" and also the fact it was made entirely out of plastic which made its strengths and weaknesses mutual on the TV show!
