Wins/Losses 1/2

Snuti is an invertible 3 pound drum spinner with armor made out of rounded 1/16 inch HDP. We chose a drum spinner design because we had heard that drum spinners have a relatively high success rate, and we chose to make our armor rounded because we wanted to see if it would take hits better than straight armor. Snuti's drum is roughly 1 pounds, and it spins up to 8,000 rpm.

  • Results:
    • Bracket Style:
      • Win vs Schwifti
        • Schwifti could not spin up their weapon during the fight, and within the first minute Snuti dealt enough damage to force Schwifti to tap out.
      • Loss vs Envious Poison
        • Snuti flipped over Envious Poison within the first thirty seconds and proceeded to deal blow after blow. At around the two minute mark, though, Envious Poison flipped back over and wound up winning solely by decision of the judges, as both robots were operational by the end of the fight.
      • Loss vs Mr. Killjoy
        • As soon as the fight began, one of Snuti's wheels stopped spinning, leaving Snuti unable to move aside from rotating.
        • At roughly thirty seconds into the fight, the belt on Snuti's drum ripped apart and flew off, leaving Snuti weaponless and immobile.

  • Armor pinched the wheel on one occasion, causing temporary loss of steering.
  • Drive motors were unreliable.
  • The belt driving the drum was not quite tight enough from becoming, so the drum would slip and decrease drum power.
  • Drum bearings did not turn as smoothly as possible and were slightly misaligned.

Good Aspects - 1.1/1 FROM DANIEL CHOI

  • The rounded armor held up well against the opponents weapons.
  • The drum was effective when it worked.


  • Reposition the drive motor mounts so that the wheel is centered behind the armor.
  • Try a flat belt instead of a V-belt.
  • Switch to better quality motors.
  • Realign drum bearings.
  • Order spare belts.
