Comments and General Information:|
competed because, quite frankly, I didn't think it would win. It had powerful
servos (that were used in three later robots) and a decent scoop, but
terrible balance. At a PARTS
meeting, I placed it in a mini sumo ring next to a robot name Goliath.
Junk immediately saw Goliath and attacked—at which point it drove
up Goliath's scoop and tipped over backwards. I decided to redesign it
after that. It later become the robot Just Big Boned,
which ironically couldn't even compete! Junk now exists only as a bare
lego frame, glued together forever and serving as a test dummy for newer
robots. It was named for its junky appearance.
Components and Parts:
- Good traction/speed/torque
frame (bolts, glue, and legos)
- Cool "Superman"
- Poor weight
- Poor balance
