In testing before programming tx my weapons linear actuAtor blew up after jamming.

Pulled apart two chairs and neither fit, I'm out of options and not enough time to make a drill threaded rid replacement.

Scrap my entry and hope everybody has a great time.

I worked so hard on this machine and was so close. The last two weeks everything possible was thrown at me preventing me from getting it done. I was so damn close. I'm shattered and so upset. I wanted to get in one last event at least.

I'm so sorry.

See you at the event Smile I am just running the lights so if you need extra pit crew to keep the bot running, I'd be happy to help.

No Problem - will pack the van with all the good stuff. Might as well throw the MIG welder in there too.

I have a kit with all sizes M3-M8. Not sure if they have a long enough throat for 3mm material though. We can try.
