First of all, this project was a true challenge for me to fit all componenets in 10x10 cm projection area and not exceeding the 500gr weight limit. Because of its speed and power I call it Mach 1.0, pretty cool name huh? :)
Weight is an another issue when it comes to mini-sumo's. Every component used in project are precisley weighed before adding them to bot.
There is no gearbox on motors unlike nearly all of the entarants in robot contests do. That makes this bot unique and extraordinary.
Anyway this is enough for praising part, let's get it started.
