well my msn addy is on the bottom of this post. (theoneshrug@hotmail.com)
im nearly 17 and live south of the river up in the hills (up roleystone way). im useing e messanger at the moment so youll have to forgive me at the moment if im not on to often.
like i said before im currantly building a feather weight but i could prob scroung round for parts for a soz bot or other type.

most of the tips i get are from thiis site and the very helpful people here (shameful plug for robot website Very Happy ) but ill try to be as helpful as i can.

so if you want to do something i could show you my robot when i get the weapon on it (just need the shaft to be taped so it fits the motor) and then it almost finnised.
EDIT:
also i copyed it off a simpsons episode that was on Laughing

Heh, its sort of obvious, SOZ stands for sixteen ounce (oz, an imperial measurement), there are 16 ounces to a pound, and one pound = 0.45359237 kg = ~454g . . . pretty much what Aaron said.

Yeah, I know, I wish the US would convert to metric and be done with it, would make things a lot easier.

In some ways the US is very modern and in others, such as this, they are old fashioned.

I found a cheap R/C Crush Gear toy at some cheap shop called "Everything is a good buy" in barkley square. It's between 5 and $10. Possibly moddable since it's designed for combat with another one.
