29-6-02-The Final Countdown....

Ok, it's all done, bar the last minute fiddles that we always only notice need fiddling with in the minutes before a fight.

KC2 evo, is all there, and has a fighting weight of 97kg if the bathroom scales are to be believed, and on Monday, I'll be putting the robot in the calf weigher down the farm to check.

The revised layout reminds me of Thermidor, and were both orange, except he's got a good flipper. This is definately the last revision to KillerCarrot, and once we've been battered at the qualifiers, and limped through this years technogames, it's going to be time for a new start.
Anyway, spec stays much the same, 2 Littons @24volts through 16.75:1 gearboxes, giving about 7mph, at the 10" Kart rears.
Power comes from a pair of 4QD NCC70 speedies mixed in the new Quazar-design prototype interface board, weapon is an SMC 100x125 ram running at 10bar through an O2 cutting regulator and a pair of 3 port solenoids, quick exhaust valves, and high flow hosing, switched by 2 Powertrac swithes, to allow power up, power down, gravity down.The whole shebang is invertable, and the chassis is 15x30x1.5mm ERW steel box, badly welded together, and covered in 6mm ally chequer plate, and 6mm RESART polycarb armour. that's about it... I thought it only fair to post all the details I could before the qualifiers, as I know I've been scouring the sites of those I may be drawn against thinking how to use the information.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!
