    Sounds like good progress, can't wait to see what the arena and Nessie will look like when they are finished.

    Nessie; so far so terrible, the unusual design is making it difficult to balance, and it vibrates like mad. On a separate note, the walking test bed almost works, we may have it in one piece by...

    It is stunning... looks fantastic, and the theme is clever too. I can appreciate the level of detail, the illuminated exit sign is genius. If it drives as good as it looks you should have a good...

    That was what I meant by overdrawing. Given the motor mentioned, it is likely to be quite low draw anyway, good to know. Plotting intensifies :D

    Extreme S.T.E.M - Jibril, The Honey Badger and Ikari The S.T.E.M event was interesting. Nice laid back atmosphere but it was getting a bit confusing over which fight was due when. Anyway, the main...

    Jibril does pull as well under low acceleration as well. Think Azriel does as well. I would try driving it on a piece of plywood or something to see what happens then. Uneven contact along the...

    For spinners, you want the higher capacity or you run the risk of overdrawing the battery or running out during the fight. Looks damn nice, can't wait to see it at the next event.

    I guess they were trying to make it more grungy for Series 3 at the time but with all the palaver with the production at the time, things had to change in Series 4.

    Noted, I had a look at some older series of Robot Wars and there were some (s3 springs to mind?) that were horrendously lit, I just want everyone to be able to see clearly.

    I thought I’d read that somewhere, thanks for clearing that up Alex. Final question (probably:uhoh:) would it be better to use white lighting or colours? Already planning on a red glow for the pit...
