Just enter something else anyway. That's MNB's secret; he doesn't care if it fits the rules.

JAN: DSL-IRL, all about cambers!
Hi, Phil Swift here with Flex Tape! The super-strong waterproof tape! That can instantly patch, bond, seal, and repair! Flex tape is no ordinary tape; its triple thick adhesive virtually welds itself to the surface, instantly stopping the toughest leaks. Leaky pipes can cause major damage, but Flex Tape grips on tight and bonds instantly! Plus, Flex Tape’s powerful adhesive is so strong, it even works underwater! Now you can repair leaks in pools and spas in water without draining them! Flex Tape is perfect for marine, campers and RVs! Flex Tape is super strong, and once it's on, it holds on tight! And for emergency auto repair, Flex Tape keeps its grip, even in the toughest conditions! Big storms can cause big damage, but Flex Tape comes super wide, so you can easily patch large holes. To show the power of Flex Tape, I sawed this boat in half! And repaired it with only Flex Tape! Not only does Flex Tape’s powerful adhesive hold the boat together, but it creates a super strong water tight seal, so the inside is completly dry! Yee-doggy! Just cut, peel, stick and seal! Imagine everything you can do with the power of Flex Tape!

I have a better idea for January's BOTM to ensure more variety on the boards before having another IRL themed BOTM: Stock Unrealistic Heavyweight with Component freedom allowed. Seeing how difficult it is to build a Stock, how about making it easier by allowing Component freedom like what enigma did for Robo Rasslin.

You can just use the tool for BOTM on a normal bot. The internals aren't checked for a tournament. If you don't abuse ra2cf you won't get caught.
-----------------------
Considering that the next IRL BOTM has a wacky building rule, the less realistic BTOM should have an odd theme too. A few ideas
1. Robots must have a Steelyard Dogs' Plow
2. Full body spinner (Thundercloud style, full body VS, etc)
3. Sawbots
4. Pyramid shaped body (either via the chassis or the components)
or
5. Robots must use a prebuilt chassis
