Knex Robot Wars Thor

Introduction: Knex Robot Wars Thor

About: I love K'nex, build the occasional wooden things, and also am an amateur engineer.

Thor. the fast and red robot that has always had problems with his CO2 system. as mostly a dreamer, it took me 5 months to perfect the design. it features a breakable bumper on the front that is required to cushion any impacts that hit the front of the robot. the actual robot just has a wedge, not a bumper, but my bumper works as a wedge as well.

Stats:

Strength (armor): 7/10

Strength (weapon/ax): 10/10

Strength (ax shaft): 10/10 because of the bendy-rod shaft locks.

i give anyone permission to recreate and re-post this build for themselves, as long as the design is changed.
