They had some kind of rubber tubing glued on the bottom to make an airtight seal, also on the outside they had an aluminum skirt with some strips of transparency sheet to fight off wedges. They had no problems with speed, because they were using brushless motors with very little gear reduction, which also meant they had a lot of problems with handling, but once they were lined up they hit the throttle and that thing flew, but in one match they lost all control with it on full throttle and it ended whizzing and spinning around the entire room at high speed( which somehow didn't get them DQed for safety reasons). When I finally had to face them I was very careful not to get in their line of attack, and getting them on my wedge was easy because by then they had smashed into so many other bots and walls that their skirt was not perfect anymoreharryk, just wondering, how did you beat it? What was the skirt made of? I'm assuming there was one. When you got under one end, did the other end wedge the robot up so the wheels were no longer touching the ground? Also, were they that fast?
I remember LASA having pelican cases but they never actually out their bot in it, I'm sure they had a turbine in it, they told others that, and I saw it when they were working on itharryk: Was LASA the team that stored there sumo bot in pelican cases? Cause it seemed kind of small to have a vacuum in it.
btw: I was the team with the clear rc car based sumo bot.
