boom boom stuff's getting done for bot blast

unfortunately due to work obligations (i start a kitchen staff job at a boy scout camp tomorrow, and i'm basically staying there for 90% of the summer) i don't have any more shop time so i had to crank everything out today, but here's what i have:

first things first i have a sick new team logo that i put together on the fly


FireArrow didn't get the full rebuild i was planning but it did get some new carbon fiber panels and some brand new attachments that will serve it well. hoping it can ascend the throne once again.

Spinjitsu is waiting on a new shell but it should be done in time. Going to downgrade to 22.2 sparks as i think the 11.1s are a little too low-torque for it to turn properly (and are stripping because of it)

Early Grave is fully ready to roll, I just need to re-attach one pinion gear that slipped out in a drive test. It has a new much thicker front wedge which should serve it well

LandShark is back! cracked a pinion gear in the gearbox conversion today so i'm going to need to order a few more of those but other than that it's fully ready to run.

looking forward to come back to bot blast. it sucked missing out last year.

Totally digging the logo.  Not so much looking forward to facing LandShark in the Mantis class though...

Decided at the last minute to revive the original FireArrow for Bot Blast, mainly as an experiment. It filled out the bracket to an even 24 too. Should be interesting to see which FireArrow performs better.

Bot Blast was great! FireArrow managed to come one arena seam away from top 4 and won the rumble, while Early Grave also managed to take 5th as well after a pair of solid victories. EG is going to get some upgrades (namely a battery with an xt60 and not a jst, as well as the botkits wheels instead of snap wheels) for next time.
