Motorama 2020

  • Results: 1-2
    • Bracket Style: Double Elimination
      • [(Video Link) Victory vs Pipe Bomb]
        • Barbi's debut in its new Barbi world ended with a Pipe Bomb exploding.
        • After several moments of confused flailing, Pipe Bomb formed an intimate connection with our weapon that resulted in the formation of a new multi-bot, Pipe and Bomb.
      • [(Video Link) Defeat vs No Regrets]
        • Barbi's next match escalated to a perilous, high-stakes match against a piece of plastic on wheels.
        • After getting crowded for 2 minutes by the multi-bot's wedge and plastic wall combo, Barbi failed to win the hearts of the judges.
      • [(Video Link) Defeat vs Telefrag]
        • Barbi's final match in Motorama revealed a key and oft-overlooked element of robotic combat: the weapon actually spinning.
        • Following the bone-chilling realization that the weapon was completely immobile, Barbi decided to assert dominance by attacking Telefrag's weapon with our bottom plate.

Battery The black ones


  • The belt did not properly fit into the pulley and continuously fell into the stator
  • The weapon motor burned out due to a combination of a (possibly) overpowered ESC, an opponent that was resistant to our primary method of attack, and (definitely) incompetent driving
  • Weight savings on top and bottom plate led to the deformation of the material and caused the electronics to sag

Good aspects

  • Absurdly powerful weapon
  • Robust design and construction of chassis
  • Almost successfully completed a self destruct sequence
  • Arguably the peak of Motorama 2020


  • Redesign weapon with aluminum base and steel teeth to improve range and redistribute weight for better uses
  • Reinforce the top and bottom plates (redesigning, possibly aluminum??)
  • Remaking side plates because they got right properly banged up
  • Redesigning the hubs to properly constrain the belt
