Bot Count Limit
Limit of 2 bots, per driver, per weight class.
ARC uses the SPARC Ruleset along with the following ammendments for its competitions:
- No use of fire or flame weapons
- Magnets may be used for additional downforce on the steel floor but not for any other reason
- In the case of both robots being stuck together and unable to sepperate, there will be 1 seperation per match
NEW - HexBug toys are forbidden since their control systems do not work inside of our arena
- Plastic Ant Rules: Western Allied Robotics Plastic Class Rules
- While most plastic ants are expected to be 3d printed, you may enter a modified toy, rc car, etc as long as it is still legal under the SPARC ruleset mentioned above AND YOU HAVE RECEIVED PERMISSION TO DO SO. Email or message David@AzRoboticCombat.com with photos and details of your toy entry.
