Im just putting this here... because when I spoke to Aaron on Wednesday night it sounded like this is definitely a thing!

Should be able to bring a bot or two down. Don't think I have any plans for that weekend yet. What sort of times would we be running as it would likely be a down and back trip for me.

Waiting on parts for killer (glue and wheel hubs) otherwise should be good for it Smile

I don't want to speak for Aaron as it's going to be at his place, and I'm not exactly the EO, but to ballpark it so you can organise I'd say it'd be safe to assume you'd be looking at your usual rock up at 9am for 10am start scenario ala Battleshed. Be great to have you there Smile

Can someone send the rough area Aaron lives? As mentioned in the previous thread I just so happen to be in Sydeny that day (Arrive Friday night) but have nothing to do till Mid Afternoon Sat.

No Bot through as my one beetle got mangled (only surviving part is one pulley and one motor) last time it traveled interstate.

Sorry for the lack of response.
Been caught up in holidays/trackdays/gokarting....

Get in around 9am, first blood around 10am.
Finish up when we either run out of robots, motivation or daylight.

Going to try to slap together a beetle of my own over the next week or so.
