MAJOR UPGRADES [AUG 02]


New hammer weapon has 5 holes for screwing in a variety of different spikey things

New teflon skids on top of the shell make for smoother inverted driving


New, bigger wheels prevent the bot from getting stuck and allow for overhead flipping whack attacks

 

STEVE JABOB PHOTO SHOOT [OCT 01]


The cool thing about 12lb bots is that you can pose with them


Aerial view of Hell on Wheels & me

 

FINISHED BOT [SEP 01]


What the other bot sees right before becoming bot-kabob!

Wow, it's half as tall as that building just behind it!


I have 3 spikes of different lengths to choose from


I upped the tire tread slightly for more ground clearance after this photo was taken

CONSTRUCTION [AUG-SEP 01]


Pulling a carbon fiber cooking pan-shaped part from the Pyrex mold


2 pieces--note that one side has a shiny finish, the other dull--an effect of the bagging/curing process I used


Both parts ready to be attached together in a clamshell setupcl


Back view--big poofy things are electronics wrapped in packing foam


Front view of open bot--looooooong spikes just added!


Each gearbox is held by 2 rubber-lined clamp mounts that also keep the gearbox in low gear


Easy access for changing batteries & for maintenance


Doing some fine-tuning over at ThinGap


First assembly, front view


Yes, all trim must be red!
