Event Description

Cancelled ARC RoboRumble has been postponed until further notice.


Bot Count Limit

It seems we've out-grown our venue. Because of this, the total bot count of all weight classes combined is capped at 35 bots. 

The previous limit of 2 bots, per driver, per weight class will also still be in effect.


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
  • 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 David@AzRoboticCombat.com with photos and details of your toy entry.
  • Walkers:
    • Shufflers will receive a 50% weight bonus
    • Walkers will recieve a 100% weight bonus*
      • *Beetleweights will only receive a 50% weight bonus even if they are a true walker.

For any questions on the rules, please email David@AzRoboticCombat.com or post a question on The ARC Facebook Group


Brackets will be double elemination unless there are less than 7 robots registered

We will start the day with ants and beetles. Fairies and plastics will mostly be used towards the end of the day while bots in the other classes need repairs.


Our event will be taking place at HobbyAction RC Raceway. Note that they have 2 locations, 1 in Chandler and 1 in Tempe. Our event is in the CHANDLER location. Unfortunately, the establishment does NOT have public WIFI. Lots of restaurants within walking distance: Chipotle, Subway, Starbucks, Rumbi Island Grill, and more!
