    Given it was never actually an issue in fights, I'd just take it up to 3Ah and save the weight for something else.

    could you use something like Ferobide and weld it to the tooth ?

    it is weld on Tungsten Carbide which is in agriculture to lengthen the life of items like subsoiler legs.

    Now I'm done with Uni for a while I spent today fixing Shrapnel up ready for Manchester, got the rear shafts repaired and fitting the spare disc so it has a nice fresh tooth. See you all there

    I stand by what I said. In all honesty, I was just glad to see Shrapnel at all given what I've read here.

    So I uh
    Kinda forgot I had a build diary?
    So... Stuff?



    STUFF

    So Manchester ended up being kinda disappointing, turns out one of my gearboxes was playing up so the drive wasn't working nice and ended up smoking a couple motors, and one of my links had come slightly loose and was constantly losing connection, meaning the brushless ESC was resetting every time it moved.
    Result: no spin spin

    FIXING THE PROBLEMS

    Well there's nothing visibly wrong with the gearbox, but it's sticking in places and eventually jamming so not worth the risk of using. Have now got a replacement and a load of spare motors. To combat the roasting of drive motors I've sold the FeatherTwo and replaced it with a Scorpion XL; hoping that current limiting the motors to just over half their stall amps will stop them spontaneously combusting if they get a bit strained. I've fiddled with the link pins to sort them out now so no more loose link issues. Gonna be keeping an eye on them in future, apparently XT60s aren't so great at staying solid so may end up switching for deans connectors.

    PREPPING FOR INSOMNIA

    So now I gotta get her ready for Insomnia

    First stage was fixing the kinda knackered wedge that's not super low any more. How to fix this? Easy; make a WHOLE NEW ONE OF COURSE





    So now I have a nice wedge that I can keep sharp and un-twisted for fighting non-spinners, and a kinda broken one I can sacrifice to spinners without worrying! Huge thanks to Binky for busting the old one and giving me the idea for a spare ☺️

    I've also got some new weapons prepped:




    All new disc and single toothed bar cut in Hardox 600 😈

    I'm also working on some bolt-on front attachments for fighting different types of opponent, including this fancy set of HDPE forks:



    There's more but I'm keeping it all under wraps for now 😉

    I'll see you all at Insomnia! ✌️
