    Paul - I've gone over MeCannibal's stats again and I'm sorry but I don't think your spinner would be able to spin properly with all that shockproofing. You might want to take some of it away.

    Aaron - No problem, I'll wait. And sorry, but no flamethrowers. The only flamethrowers I'm going to allow are on the house robots. :P

    ----

    Right, Alex Holt got a spot over MSN (he needs to get in the rest of his otherweights though :P), so the HW competition is now closed. I still need HWs from Tracy, Aaron, and Leo, and otherweights from Alex. That leaves 3 spots open for AWs, 1 spot open for FWs, and 2 for the rest of the otherweights. Get 'em in!

    Gonna have to pull out of this one, between work, travel and real robots, I'm strapped for time. Give me spot to someone else please

    The May Tracks Has You

    Shape: A box wedge, 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.

    The Crashing Bore 2

    Shape: Box with a wedge on front, with a sharpened front wedge extender.

    Dimensions: 80 X 40 X 25 (lwh)

    GC: 2 CMs at sides and rear, 0 at front. Side and rear skirts protect the sides and rear, but can be removed to fight spinners.

    Weapon 1: The trap is back as ever, powered by two LEM 130s on 36 volts. This time the idea is to snap and grip.

    Weapon 2: The front wedge lifts up, powered by a linear actuator. This should lift around 200 KGs.

    Weapon 3: The drill is also back, powered by the same actuator as the wedge. As the wedge lifts, the drill extends to attack the base of whatever is being lifted. The drill is sprung with 50 KGs of downforce, so anything the drill cannot penetrate easily will push it down the shaft and still allow the wedge to lift. However, the drill will still push into the opponent with a force of 50 KGs.

    Armour: A 3.2 mm hardox monocoque, except for the front wedge which is 8 mm hardox. The skirts are 5 mm grade 5 Ti.

    Drive: Four wheel drive, powered by two LEM 130s on 36 volts

    Srimech: The trap

    Notes: Painted to look like it€™s a red robot with a fine layer of dust :O

    Raging Tempest

    Shape: Ring spinner.

    Speed: 12 MPH.

    Dimensions(dh): 80CM X 25 CM

    GC: 1 CM.

    Armour: The spinning ring is 4 MM of Hardox 500. The base and top are 5 mm of polycarb. There is a 1 CM Ti box section frame, with weight reducing holes.

    Weapon: Ring spinner powered by two Lem 130s at 36 volts and spinning at 1500 RPM to deliver around 70 KJs per hit. The four hardox teeth are 6 inches long with two being placed near the top and two near the bottom.

    Weapon 2: Two foot long blades can be attached to the bottom of the machine and skim 5 mm above the floor, with the idea being to sneak under GCs and attack wheels. This is only used as an anti-Tengu measure.

    Drive: 2 wheeled, driven by S28-400 magmotors at 24 volts.

    Srimech: Invertible.

    Notes: Has an absolute buttload of shock proofing inside. Everything is firmly bolted down, with layers of rubber between everything. Added to that, the teeth have a backwards curving shape which maximises the distance it will throw itself away from the opponent. The reason is twofold. First is to make ramming and flipping it difficult, but the main reason is to bleed away kinetic energy backlash, by using that backlash to move the robot externally rather than internally. The shockproofing is mostly there to stop it shock killing itself upon landing.

    The 6isc

    Shape: Like an old fashioned bar-bell. It is two circular wheel pods, connected by an axle in the middle of which sits the disc.

    Size: 60X110X60 CM (LWH)

    Weight: ~100 KGs

    Speed: 10 MPH.

    Ground clearance: Under the wheel protectors, it€™s 5 mm.

    Weapon: 26 KG spinning disc, powered by one LEM 130 Lynch motor and going at 2500 RPM. The disc is shaped with its own teeth rather than needing teeth surgically attached to it, so dentistry is quite impossible. The energy output is 36 KJ€™s which, while modest by vapour €˜bot standards should still be enough to make a mess of things.

    Wheels: 6 wheels, but four wheel drive. This has three wheels on either side arranged in a triangular fashion, so it only runs on four at a time. The wheels are 1 CM solid Ti with soft compound rubber wrapped around them to provide shock resistance, and a layer of Vulcalon wrapped around that to provide traction.

    Chassis: The main chassis consists of one solitary 1 CM thick 4 mm box section hardox bar. Slotted over that is a secondary axle, inside which are the batteries. There are also two other triangular chassis€™ supporting the wheels. These are made from 4 MM 1 CM box section Ti bars with weight reducing holes.

    Armour: The true axle and chassis is a 4 MM hardox bar. The battery axle is 2 mm aluminium. The semi circular wheel protectors and side spikes are 5 mm Hardox. The disc itself is 14 MM of Hardox 500, and the outer axle is 4 mm grade 5 Ti.

    Srimech: Totally invertible. Controls won€™t even have to be reversed after flipping, meaning it can just go straight back on the attack.

    Drive: 2 S28-400 Magmotors at 24 volts.

    Strengths: The newest version of The 6isc does away with as many weaknesses in The Disc 5 as I could find.

    Weaknesses: Weak armour in places. Can€™t use axe attacks.

    I'll get some otherweights knocked up if I have time, but I've been really busy lately so no promises. I'll enter some random real ones if I run out of time on that front.

    Aaron, how's entering going to take up any time at all? It's not like ARC where you have to RP weekly. You can virtually just enter your designs and not even post tactics at all and you could still be a contender to win [I don't recall posting any tactics whatsoever and SUNCUST still made it to the quarterfinals of C&BT....2, right?]

    Damn. Sorry to hear that, Aaron. :sad: Although that does allow Frank to enter with the heavyweights he's just posted. And thanks Leo!

    * - bots that need to be adjusted / fixed.

    Paul - I also just noticed that your spinning ring, given the dimensions and thickness of it, is actually 43kg, not 30kg. Could you rectify this problem please? Make the ring thinner than 10mm or compensate for the extra 13kg of spinning ring you're bringing on board.

    Frank - The Crashing Bore 2 is much too thin. You won't be able to get everything that's in your robot in there. Please widen it, thank you.

    Right. We have all our heavyweights. The draw for that will be posted some time in the near future. Still need otherweights, though. 1 more AW and FW, and 2 more LWs, MWs, and SHWs. Get them in!

  7. #67
    Just take my default otherweights for each category, unless they aren't eligible in which case just take the most ludicrous robot of each weight you can think of, my knowledge of real otherweights is minimal.

    No problem, Alex. I'll take Sith, Tiny Tengu, MW Blizzard, and Red Knight to be your entries then, if that's okay.

    Just waiting on AJ's otherweights, one more person to enter a LW, MW, and SHW, and for Paul and Frank to fix up MeCannibal 3.0 and The Crashing Bore 2, before fights officially begin. Line-ups regardless will be posted very shortly.

  9. #69
    Right, thanks to Joey and Kody for help. The dimensions are now 80x45x25(lwh). Having double checked the armour this doesn't put it overweight.

    I'd just like to say the site I originally used for research lied to me. It's not my fault
