Cake - Beetleweight
First there was Ron, and then there was the semi-par entertaining stand-in named Pacman. Well I let him kick the bucket last competition so it is time to get on with a new beetle and this time I'm serious...
well, kinda :P
Cake is going to be a refined version of Attrition. When I built Attrition, most of my concerns revolved around cost instead of effectiveness. As a result, the bot has a few but significant flaws that I hope to address in a downscale. Lets see if they work.
1) Integrate tabs into the frame 2) more precise drum parts 3) Reliable drive system 4) ball bearings!
With that said, here is cake as it stands. A beautiful pile of parts.
