Hey guys and gals, Devin here, long time builder first time poster. I have the weapon motor cover for my beetle in the oven so thought while I'm doing some work I might as well start a team thread.

right now I'm planning on going to franklin with my 3 lber void and my 30 lber The magnificent poncho.

Thanks guys for being a great community, pics and progress soon to come.

here's what I'm doing tonight. during void's last competition at motorama 2014 it suffered several weapon failures caused exclusively by the wire's being exposed out the top and easily disconnected. This time however thanks to a lightweight carbon fiber frame I'm making a proper weapon cover.

here I have the uhmw cut out to the shape of the weapon motor out rigging.

Here's the motor rigging, I'm going to use it as a mold to bend the uhmw to the right shape

turns out my motrama trophy works perfectly as a stand for my motor mount, alittle carpet tape and it's stuck and ready to mold the cover.

20 mins in the oven at 250 and some quick hands. prolly another hour of dremeling, cleaning, and super glue and this will be a success.

1 3/4lb of spinning mass? seems kinda nuts in a 3lb bot :P How fast is it spinning? looks like a lot of reduction
