I've never seen anything like THIS happen before!



Damn. Good thing they have 2 sets of walls.

Who's the 2015 Bite Force look-alike?

It’s a grabber.

Back to the video- I have no idea what you’re trying to point out, but bots getting caught in walls is usually caused by kinetic energy buildup in spinners. This can cause bots to land in awkward positions.
Dude, did you even watch the video? Drivetrain (the Bite Force lookalike) pushed Equinox (drum spinner) into the wall, drum spinning full speed, which caused the wall to get destroyed & both bots ended up driving out of the arena.

No it's a lifter in the style of Bite force 2015 like Tommy just said.

The bots weren't stuck, the wall got destroyed & they ended up driving out of the arena.

I thought you meant Bite Force from BattleBots.
Trust me. There are more than a few ways to get your bot caught on a wall.

They did not get caught on the wall, I just said that. They destroyed the wall & drove out of the arena!

Yes, in the video you posted, they did damage the wall and escape. I was talking about all the robot combats I’ve seen so far.

Mike Gellatly is jealous of that driving skill seen at the start.

This is from a fight that I recorded a couple years ago.


This was the first time I ever saw a robot get torn completely in half. Here's an image I took of the aftermath.
