I will complete my arena over Christmas to fit in Gary's battlebox. Are there any tips on colouring? I know Pete C's is bright yellow because its "good for video", but also gives Pete W headaches. I was thinking pale green or blue?

I don't really care about the colour, but could you put some sand in the paint? :D

preferably a pale colour for the ATR. Need a dark stripe round the edge, but you could always use gaffa tape, just for its exhibition fight

It gives an uneven surface which makes it easier for wheels to get a grip on and also makes suction slightly less effective.

Definitly no sand that would eliminate over 50% of the ants because of there low fronts plus it would stop any vacuum robot.

Just the suction really. I guess you could always just drill holes.
