Motorama 2013 Day Two

Continuing with the amazing success I had yesterday, the second day of Motorama was also wonderful. Coercion is currently 3-0 and is one win away from being guaranteed a trophy. In its first fight, it got a quick TKO against Parallelogreg (it got stuck on the wall at the beginning of the fight). In its second fight, Coercion beat The Hammer by knockout after a few big hits. Coercion went on to beat the notoriously tough Shame Spiral by a strong knockout:

I have never seen Shame Spiral receive damage before: I am stunned. Coercion ripped off half the front wedge and broke the drive.

I am set to fight Revenge of Dr. Super Brain tomorrow morning. Hopefully I’ll get some videos up soon!

Motorama 2013 Day One

I will post more once I get some sleep: those concrete floors and six-plus hours of robot fighting really take it out of you! That said, I am pleased as punch. Lolcat went 3-1 and took second place (it beat my friend Sean McKeown’s fairyweight, a disabled Keres, and Toni Fowlie’s fairyweight box and lost to the eventual winner). Cannon also took second, going 4-2 (it beat Toni’s ant box, Swamp Woman 2, Low Blow, and Algos then lost to Low Blow twice in the finals).

Both robots performed well, but both are in such a state that they should probably be rebuilt. It was worth all the effort I put into building them, though.

Here is a fight:

Note that we have several official videographers this year: I’ll be able to link all my fights to the full event report. Also note that my hotel Internet is terrible, so I will post these incremental reports when I get the chance.
