It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

Minor update. Most everything is put together. I just need to buy all the batteries I need (namely the 9volts) and then I can seal it up and start practicing some driving.

Looking good dude!

just as a note your radio aerial doesn't have to be outside the bot. :P

Makes sense though, it would probably way too much of a hindrance to be outside the bot.

Also, that black receiver thing behind the wheel motors. I can't for the life of me figure out how I'm expected to keep that thing in place like the book wants me to. :ermm:

That could be a possibility. The book recommended using pliers, but that didn't really seem to do the trick.

Also, I realized I didn't post the name of the bot in here yet. It's going to be Mini-Boss, which makes it an off-shoot of my fantasy Final Boss line (and perhaps even moreso down the the line if I spring for the lifter add-on at some point).

you mean this thing?

I assume you just press-fit it into the hole in the chassis. There's supposed to be something that plugs into it which serves as an off switch.

Welp, first tournament was a bit rough as far as competing goes as Mini-Boss had some issues moving when he got flipped over, but still had a lot of fun. Plus Mini-Boss didn't actually take any real damage outside of some minor scratching so nothing major to replace yet&#33;

Plus I got some cool added decorations from Badnik, including a good, sturdy front wedge with the Boss slogan on it&#33;

Twas a valiant first effort in the arena. Next step is to get that lifter kit&#33;

You think you'll be able to bring it to Franklin in October? That's the next big event around here.
