This is the current Drive platform
it shouldn't have to change much from this version... I hope
This is the life support system.
Otherwise known as feeding time.
Guess what it's too heavy (before
rule changes) which happened after the August event that got canceled...
This a Quick loss diet program
Part of the Diet program about 11
lbs worth. We also replaced the drive wheels that had cast iron rims with
aluminum rims. Also 1 of the batteries with smaller ones. Weight
Reduction Cost $300.00 a LOT of money for 16 lbs.
Now because of rule changes we can put the weight back on.
Your Basic Robot Lab???
The floor was painted red before We began testing S.L.A.M it rides CLOSE to the ground. It's like a big rotary shaver especially on the high spots.
It's also been hard on plugged in electrical cords and the acetylene torch hoses.
The pet dog also fears it (Poor Posie) she runs for her life. Good Idea I'd run too.
No Matter how many times I tell
him how dangerous S.L.A.M is. Otto still likes to ride it. With judgment
like that maybe I shouldn't let him fly Airplanes with me.
He's such an animal...
This picture shows the drive section
in all its glory.
The ultimate Weapon? We think it should be effective. The Rotator turns about 90-200 RPM,s and weights 54 lbs. The Blades stick out about 10 inches at the bottom edge. It has been tested against concrete walls which it eats. We also tested it against a Milk crate that had 190 lbs of lead and big rocks and stuff in it. The Crate was just sitting on the floor. S.L.A.M flips it over easily and tosses it into the air.
The Sound of S.L.A.M eating an extension cord. (he he)
Team S.L.A.M is ready and waiting.
