Hi Guys,

For an overhead bar spinner like Justice, does it matter if the pulleys and belt are on top being exposed or would you guys suggest it being under the top plate. Also would using wood screws to mount HDPE together crack it?

You'll be fine with them above so long as there's not too little space between the belt and the bar.

Hi Guys,

So I ask my dad to get some lexan from Lowe's...




For comparison, that is a 3' piece of pvc pipe. Thought you guys would get a kick out of this.

Hi guys,

I have to run it over with my Dad, but I think for Justice v2 I'm going to use a viper kit chassis. So for my question, for 11.1:1 motors what is the max. diameter wheels I could use without destroying the motors and ESCs?

Thanks again,

I run the 11:1's on 3s with ~1.4" wheels (turned down lite flites) on Algos and I wouldn't really go much larger than that.

Thanks Mike.

All,

How would one use a flanged bearing in a horizontal spinner, are they even meant for high speeds? Should I use one or two? Do I just push the axle in, or should I use collars? I am very new at using axles and bearings, so forgive me if I screw something up.

As an addition to the last post ^. Could I use bearing blocks from Fingertech? And how do you use needle roller bearings? I plan to use those as a backup plan.

Hi guys,

I will be at Franklin Institute tomorrow, but I won't be competing. I have a football game at 10am. But I will be there to see you guys, since if I don't go I'll have to wait until Moto to see you guys. Also, I'm going to use a viper kit for Justice's v2 chassis. Any questions or concerns?

See you tomorrow!

Hi guys,

I just got all of the parts for Justice v2 today. I can finally start building. My hope is to have him done in time to compete at Pennbots' Fall Brawl in order to test him out before Moto.

Hi Guys,

I could't get Justice done in time for Fall Brawl, so I decided to bring Bulwark instead. One of the bearing blocks just fell apart because I was pushing a shaft in and out so often. so onto designing a new version of Justice.

So post Pennbots report:

Bulwark went 1-2, beating Spare Parts, and losing to Little Wedge and Cornerstone.

Ophidian went 1-2 also, beating Cornerstone, and losing to Ant n'at, and Spare Parts.

Cornerstone went 4-2 to get 2nd place, beating Trivial Jr., Bulwark, Little Wedge, and Spare Parts, and losing to Ophidian, and Ant n'at in the finals. Cornerstone is also Ranked 6th on Botrank.

Well that a rap for now,
Adam,
