Scale Model Testing Your BattleBots in Nightmare Mode #Robotics #BattleBots
The Equals Zero blog posts about remanufacturing a battlebot.
The damage from March wasn’t that bad in the grand scheme of things, but in the name of thoroughness I decided to completely take the bot apart and remanufacture it to address some of the frame damage and retighten the motor screws, among other tasks.
Prior to March, I commissioned an entire new chassis to be machined by Wedge Industries. I figured as long as I actually had new 30haul parts, why not just move the bot to the new chassis and keep the old one as the “Just in case…”

I teleported up to Norwalk over the course of the day on Friday, May 14th, and got to my (now usual…) Norwalk generic business hotel around 10pm. The event started at 9 the next morning, and it was a full house.
