Weapon Motor
Drive chains


Balancing biases
Trying to work through various judging permutations


Trying to remember what we do about judging

A 'control bot'

TR2


One of the best records, if not the best record, in modern Robot Wars


Tombstone vs Reality


Tombstone


Exists

Reality


Tanky in a way which may or may not be useful
Ominous


Wajoo is scary



Monsoon vs Captain Shrederator

Tauron, but excellent

Captain Shrederator


A rich history

An upsetting record

Expulsion


Failing to self right in the most upsetting of ways

Beat Pulsar to get here

A competent horizontal
