Rules:

 

We will follow modified Sparc rulesets for both classes.

 

Approved materials for plastic ants are printed PET, PETG, ABS, PLA, PLA+, and TPU.

 -Motors,wheels, fasteners, and electronics do not need to be printed, but must not be a significant structural part of the bot.

 -Any non printed parts should not be exposed in a way that they can be hit, or hit another bot. The bot should be as much 3d printed as possible.

 

No heat, fire, smoke, entanglement, or other weapons that do not fit the spirit of the rules.

Shufflers will get a half weight bonus (681g)

True walkers using no continuous rotational movement for locomotion (this includes things like vibration motors) will get a full weight bonus (908g)

Batteries should be protected at all times. If a battery becomes exposed during the fight, the match is over. The bot with the exposed battery loses. Take care when charging batteries and charge them in lipo bags.

Bots will be given up to 20 minutes minutes between fights for repairs. Later in the day we may need to be strict on this time, so please work with us.

There will only be 1 attempt at an unstick and only if both bots are stuck. If they cannot be unstuck or get stuck again, the match will go to the judges.

If you have any rules questions please contact us BEFORE the event.

 

Format:

Double elimination

3 minute matches

Judges will score on a 5-5-5 point system

 

If you have any questions feel free to email us at rabidrva@gmail.com
