Your drives are impressive. Are you happy with them? Do you think the Banebots gear boxes and brushless motors are worth the extra expense as compared to drills? Have they lasted for a long time?

Hi Louis. Miles and Jules run regular ant competitions in Ipswich. Botbitz http://botbitz.com/product-category/antweight/ sells may parts for robots. Do you have a design in mind?

Thanks, Richard. Do you have any video of it flipping a robot or equivalent weight? How many kilograms of weight does it take to force the tip to the ground?

That could be a good solution. Do you know if they can be reliably retracted in case the robot gets stuck on the wheelie bar?

Wild Fire did alright in it's first outing yesterday. It was quite fast and turned over robots if they were on the lifting arm.
