Re: Robot Wars TV Series 2016 BBC 2

Heavyweight Battery

Re: AWS 40

Signed up already, but I wanted to check the rules about interchangeable shells and/or weapons, something i'm working on at the moment. Also I may sign up Little Doris for the non spinner competition if i can get it working again.
