And we thank all the EOs who helped hash out the rules and now use them at their events!

Absolutely. This wouldn't have been possible without everyone participating in the process.

This post will be used to track proposed changes to the SPARC Robot Construction Guidelines for v1.1.

Additions will be bolded, removed sections will be struck through.

Proposed Changes:
Alter rule 13.1 to read as follows:
13.1. Springs used in robots in the 12 lbs class or smaller and those loaded simply by the weight of the robot(eg. suspension systems) are excepted from the rules in this section. However safe operation and good engineering are always required.

General Robotics Discussion / Welcome to the SPARC Forum
« on: December 23, 2014, 10:23:02 am »
Welcome to the SPARC Forum.

This forum was created to provide an easy to access discussion hub for the robot combat community.

The General section is mainly for higher level discussion of robotic combat along with product announcements and a classified section.

The Tech section is where you can post your progress reports, discuss the rules, post any technical questions you have, and post about any tech tips you may have come across.

The Events section is for discussing specific events around the world.  There are subfolders for club discussions.

The Non-Combat Zone is where you can discuss projects that aren't related to robotic combat or any other subjects that may be of interest so long as they're kept work safe.
