Texas Robot Combat is back! Our new home is at REV Robotics Headquarters! Join us for the first full combat event in Dallas since 2020! We’re going to be running ants and plastic ants in the TRC 6x6 arena. There will be heavyweight robots on display!
Important information: This event takes place in the REV Robotics shop. The shop is currently under construction so you will need to bring your own pit tables, chairs, and plenty of water. Remember that we are guests in the space, so please respect the shop and the facility. We’ve taken a look at the venue and it’’s pretty amazing! We’re excited to be back!
Signups are limited to one robot per driver per weight class. Please leave room for other builders and refrain from registering multiple robots within the weight classes.
ALL SIGNUPS MUST BE DONE BEFORE THE EVENT. We are expecting the event to fill up, so register fast!
We don't have pit tables and chairs for everyone. Please plan on bringing a table to pit on for this event.
There will be no break for lunch. REV HQ is close to plenty of restaurants that offer doordash, so plan on either bringing food or ordering it to the event.
There are no public water fountains in the building, so please please please bring water bottles to stay hydrated. We will have water for sale for $1 for those of you who forget.
