    Oh, the confusion and delay!

    Heres a brand new, possibly overweight entry if permitted.

    NAME- Mornington Crescent
    SHAPE- flat cylinder
    COLOUR- white, with the London Underground sign for Mornington Crescent on the top and bottom
    WEIGHT- approx 100kg
    DIMENSIONS- 100cm X 20cm
    SPEED- 12mph
    TURNING CIRCLE- 0mm
    GROUND CLEARANCE- 8mm
    ARMOUR- 3.5mm Hardox
    MOVEMENT- 4 x inner wheels
    POWER- 2 x S28-400 Magmotors, running at 24v
    WEAPONS- Mornington Crescent is armed with not one, but TWO outer spinning rings, one on top of the other. The top ring spins anticlockwise, while the bottom ring spins clockwise. Each ring has four teeth and weighs about 10kg. The rings are powered by an LEM-130 running at 36v each and can reach speeds of 1500rpm. The two rings spinning in alternate directions should also help the robot be easier to drive - theoretically, anyway.
    SRIMECH- invertible
    NOTES- flies Scotland flag, thanks to Joey and Andy for helping with stats
    STRENGTHS- two spinners for the price of one, nippy, manoueverable, tough, more controlled than regular ring spinners
    WEAKNESSES- wheels open to axes and crushers, unpredictable bouncing?

    As there seems to be enough interest, I€™m going to increase the numbers to 12 and do three-way mªles in Round 1.

    1) No Consequences - Joey
    2) Martijn
    3) Monsoon Season - Dan
    4) Nitro-Gene 5.0 - Paul
    5) Lethal Weapon - Tony
    6) Flank Attack 2: DT - Alex MW
    7) Whiplash - Sam
    Mornington Crescent - Steve
    9) Chris
    10) Achilles - Alex H
    11) Frank
    12) Krackotoa - Kody

    Just need vapours from Martijn, Chris and Frank (assuming you all want places) and we can get going!

    The May Tracks Has You

    Shape: Like Comengetorix. It has a wedge extender to give it 0 mm at the front.

    Speed: 15 MPH.

    Dimensions(lwh A): 85CM X 45 CM X 24 CM

    Armour: 4.5 MM hardox.

    GC: 0 mm at the front, 6 mm everywhere else, covered by skirts made of 3 mm Ti.

    Weapon 1: Rear hinged flipper, powered by two pneumatic rams at 500 psi.

    Weapon 2: Upward facing spikes on the wedge. A robot can go over them, but if it tries to reverse, say goodbye to your tyres. By wedging a robot then reversing suddenly, TMTHY can impale the tyres, then fire the flipper to do loads of damage. Even a robot with stuffed tyres will be limping after that.

    Drive: Inner tracks, powered by Lem-130€™s at 24 volts.

    Srimech: The flipper.

    Strengths: Weapon synergy, has sunglasses painted on the side. Once The May Tracks Has You, there is no escape.

    Weaknesses: Axe/flipper combos could take the tracks out.

    Notes: There is a strip of metal shaped like sunglasses at the top of the flipper to prevent fast robots just going straight up and over like in Storm 2 vs Firestorm.

    ORKA RV

    Weight: 100 kilos
    Body Shape: Basic Invertible box-wedge shape. 1m long, 0.8m wide, 0.3m at maximum height.
    Speed: Some 15mph
    TC: 0
    GC: 8mm, 0mm at front.
    Wheels; 6 inner
    Armour; 7mm titanium
    Power; 3x 12v batteries, powered by S28-400 Magmotors, at 24v.
    Colour; Black with white patches
    Weapons; A pneumatic CO2 powered flipping arm that spans most of the robots length. It can throw some 400 kilos and has about 50 flips. Although the arm itself is quite narrow (about half the robot width), the flipper plate expands the full width.
    Srimech: Its a both-er. It can run inverted AND self-right using the arm.
    Inspiration; Ive always liked Orcas. Adding the K made it sound more dangerous.
    Strengths; Weapon
    Weaknessess: Hard to turn
