Reboot from Rotwang - Vic

As you may know Mini mower has been retired after its victory in Sydney Annihilation so we thought it was good time to step out on a high and build a beta version Drum bot.

We have named the new bot Reboot never again will our drums come out of battle like mini mowers did, we using a shorter drum and using thick steel. We have gone for a flying saucer look, were sticking to the 100 watt scooter motors we expect Mini mowers spin move will continue into this one and be even faster.
Other places we have improved are a more simplified lay out easier to work on, change belts motors wheels etc. Hopefully a little bit easier to drive the wheels will be further apart so may gain more control the heavier drum will pack more of a nock out punch.
One other design consideration Reboot will fit nicely into suitcases unlike most Rotwang bots Very Happy

Suitcase bots are cool

Another advantage I have found with suitcase bots is that you can generally travel around and mingle with normal people without being spotted for a Lame Nerd Very Happy But sometimes you can still get pointed out as being a Nerd but what are you going to do?. Cool

Surely not? I can't vouch for Arron, but Basilisk has upgraded since that Anhilator match, so any re-match will be a real crowd pleaser.

Oh, and some photos would be sweet - always good to see how the opposition is looking.
