Event Description

Bot Count Limit

Limit of 2 bots, per driver, per weight class.


ARC uses the SPARC Ruleset along with the following ammendments for its competitions:

  • No use of fire or flame weapons
  • Magnets may be used for additional downforce on the steel floor but not for any other reason
  • In the case of both robots being stuck together and unable to sepperate, there will be 1 seperation per match
  • NEW - HexBug toys are forbidden since their control systems do not work inside of our arena
  • Plastic Ant Rules: Western Allied Robotics Plastic Class Rules
    • While most plastic ants are expected to be 3d printed, you may enter a modified toy, rc car, etc as long as it is still legal under the SPARC ruleset mentioned above AND YOU HAVE RECEIVED PERMISSION TO DO SO. Email or message with photos and details of your toy entry.
  • Walkers:
    • Shufflers will receive a 50% weight bonus
      • Shuffler fairies would be 225 grams
      • Shuffler ants/plastics would be 1.5lbs
      • Shuffler beetles would be 4.5lbs
    • Walkers will recieve a 100%* weight bonus
      • Walker fairies would be 300 grams
      • Walker ants would be 2lbs
      • Walker beetles will only receive a 66.66% weight bonus which would make them 5lbs.
