Hibachi was a successful horizontal bar spinner in the 2020 class of the 3lb program. With an aluminum chassis, plastic back, and hardened steal weapon, Hibachi was fairly conventional in design. However, its hard to argue with success.

  • Results:
    • Double Elimination:
      • [(Video Link) WIN vs Protostorm]
        • The first match was a true driver focused battle. Protostorm, a well built vertical bar spinner, put up a good fight at first. Protostorm managed to take large chunks out of Hibachi's voluptuous foam wheels. However, after Hibachi cut the weapon belt and disabled drive on one wheel, Protostorm tapped out.
      • [(Video Link) WIN vs Billy]
        • Hibachi's second match was arguably the highlight of the entire tournament, except for possibly the incredible win of Vijay's Car over Perri. Billy managed to do some serious damage to Hibachi early in the match, nearly cutting the belt and flipping Hibachi on its side. Then However, Billy made the fatal mistake of approaching Hibachi while it was flipped. When Billy came in contact with the weapon, it literally was cut in half (watch the video). This was a win to remember for the Robojackets.
      • [(Video Link) LOSS vs Silent Spring]
        • In the third match, Hibachi had the honor of challenging the #1 Beetleweight in the world, Silent Spring. Hibachi put up a solid fight against the Georgia Tech alum, however after suffering a bent weapon, the Hibachi team decided collectively to tap out.
      • [(Video Link) LOSS vs Hellbot]
        • The fourth match was a tough loss for the Hibachi boys. Hellbot, essentially a speedy RC car with a wedge and construction hard hat on top. The agility of Hellboy, along with a malfunction in Hibachi's drive train, made it difficult to gain control in the match. Despite knocking off one of Hellboy's four wheels, Hibachi lost by judges decision.

  • The 8 hours before leaving for Motorama, we discovered that the robot was heinously obese (whopping 2 ounces overweight), causing us to put it on a diet via dremmel. However, dieting process, while successful, left the weapon scarred and deformed, barely recognizable from its original CAD design.
  • In our attempt to diet Hibachi, we also replaced our back plate with a plastic plate that was the dictionary definition of "janky". Our screw holes were however, pardon the pun, screwed, as the screws were unable to screw in full way and left half hanging out of the chasis.

Good aspects

  • It made the weight requirement.
  • It worked.
  • It won matches.
  • The weapon design, even after the dieting process, was, for lack of other words, thicc.
