Not necessarily pete, If the bye is considered to be a robot then this can be avoided i.e.: Militant draws a bye in the first round, although no match takes place it is considered that militant defeates they bye and continiues on in the winners bracket and the bye goes into the losers bracket. THere...

I would like to be able idealy to find a very light regulator to bring the pressure down to around 100psi. Regulator is basically a spring valve that resists the pressure behind it. I would be impressed to see, even at Super, a reg strong enough to reduce full 750psi. I'm sure they exist (not much ...

Pete, there is no decanting required. All the very small ones (around 11g or slightly more of Co2 are disposable, i.e. one use). A small canister could easily be surrounded by 6mm polycarbonate without too much weight being used up. Fair enough, but that still doesn't cover connections - always the...

THe test was not done blind folded. The tests were carried out by pepsi first and then coca cola tried them later on.

Not to sound condesending but it takes at most 30sec to change the crystals in the Tx. Its just difficult to change the crystals in some robots.The 5min is there more as a guide than a strict rule, I doubt anyone would throw you out of a competition if it took you 5min 10sec to change your crystal. ...

Another point which people may disagree with but I'll put it out there is that if superants are watered down too much then people will: 1. Not want to compete as there is no real actio0n involved. 2. Not be challanged enough to make a very good robot 3. Find it very difficult to build a successful a...
