We will be running a raffle the day of the event for a complete, ready to fight bot! The prize is a fully assembled Turnabot SlipAnt! The bot is assembled using a SCAR Plant kit donated by Bunny of Team Malice! The bot, battery, charger, and radio are all included! In total the kit is worth over $200! Tickets will be $5 each, or 5 tickets for $20. Drawing will be held before the rumble and the winner will be allowed to take part in the rumble if they wish!
We will follow the basic sparc ruleset for plastic classes.
Approved materials are printed PET, PETG, ABS, PLA, PLA+, and TPU.
Motors,wheels, fasteners, and electronics do not need to be printed, but must not be a significant structural part of the bot.
Any non printed parts should not be exposed in a way that they can be hit, or hit another bot. The bot should be as much 3d printed as possible.
No heat, fire, smoke, entanglement, or other weapons that do not fit the spirit of the rules.
Shufflers will get a half weight bonus (681g)
True walkers using no continuous rotational movement for locomotion (this includes things like vibration motors) will get a full weight bonus (908g)
Batteries should be protected at all times. If a battery becomes exposed during the fight, the match is over. The bot with the exposed battery loses. Take care when charging batteries and charge them in lipo bags.
Bots will be given up to 20 minutes minutes between fights for repairs. Later in the day we may need to be strict on this time, so please work with us.
There will only be 1 attempt at an unstick and only if both bots are stuck. If they cannot be unstuck or get stuck again, the match will go to the judges.
If you have any rules questions please contact us BEFORE the event.
3 minute matches
Judges will score on a 5-5-5 point system
