Re: AWS 50- 23rd July- Basingstoke

Hi there, remember me? I wouldn't be surprised if you don't. It's been while but it's that time again where I blow the dust away from my transmitter, realise how much in disrepair past me has left my ants and rush like a madman to make it to an event, in other words, I just signed up. I'm also enter...

Re: New Anticide

It is indeed a Fischertechnik cylinder, I run almost the same setup in Inertiant (that and a RS valve) just typical that as soon as I have mine working in battle, someone comes along and blows it out of the water. Very impressed, very jealous.

Re: :Wanted:

Hey guys. I'm looking for a member of the forum who has access to a Vacuum former, to make and print me a mould out of Polycarbonate for a project. It's a bit silly as I work for an engineering company and the only tool they (and every manufacturing company in the area I’ve talked to) don't have und...

Re: AWS 46- University of Reading- 28th March 2015

After some slick negotiation at work, I can now come to the AWS (just registered). Now I need to quickly put them back together again (meaning as we all know, working flat out till 3 AM the morning of the event to get more than 1 wheel working) It's that time again as well for any volunteers to driv...

Re: antweight open 2. 22nd november 2014

Phew, just entered. I've been quiet on the antweight scene as I've had a lot of big things in my life (learnt to drive new flat, new full-time job) but I'm now able to get back to the competitions. I know its short notice, but if anyone wants to have a go of driving/wants another ant I'm going to lo...

Re: How to fight with this robot

If you mean the spinner, than the best type of robot would tend to be a fast and well armoured pusher. The strategy usually is to try and get underneath the spinner using a wedge and try to ram the spinner into the arena wall (trust me, for safety the arena will be tougher than any robot). Either tw...

Re: AWS 43- University of Reading- Sat 8th March 2014

Unfortunately Jono isn't able to make this time. Due to this I wonder if anyone has a spare place in their team to drive The Word?

Re: AWS 42 - Burntwood Staffordshire 26th October

Apologies for how close this is to the event, after narrowly advoiding a work crisis, Im now free to enter. I've entered Angry Bird under my name as Jono may be unable to come as he's at Uni now, but if so its his. I'm planning to take a train to Lichfield and take a taxi to the venue and back. I'm ...
