Thanks Tom. The next SA will have 4 times more axe power, will be smaller and more manoeuvrable and have a front flipper too. Hopefully it will be all the things that SA never managed to be!

The arena is definitely not up to it any more for some of todays robots. It has come a long way though - just look back at some of the early shows and see how much its been improved.

Is it just me, or does this thread seem to have wandered off the subject a bit?
