Fight 1 was against UFO, a large low 3 sided plastic wedge powered by 3 R/C toy car chassis. I simply plowed into UFO broadside at full speed assuming my steel spikes would dig into the plastic skirts. They did and UFO was easily pushed off the platform in both rounds.

Fight 2 was against Storm, a small 4 wheel drive bot with a vertical spinner in front. He had wire brushes for wheels. I assumed I could just push him off the platform but he proved resistant and we both went off in round 1. Invertabot suffered some scratches and holes in the sheet metal from the spinner. Also one of the front spikes was bent in the fall. In round 2 I used the flipper at the first opportunity and flipped him off the platform. In round 3 I flipped him over and called for a mobility check. Invertabot wins fight 2.

Fight 3 was against a fast low 4 wheel drive invertable wedge called TestBot 2.0 driven by 15 year old Charles Guan. The first two rounds were draws with TestBot 2.0 getting under Invertabot and driving both bots off the edge. The kid is pretty good. In round 3 TestBot drove himself off. Invertabot pushed off TestBot in round 4 and won the first match in the round robin finals.

Next I had to fight Death From Below, another 4WD invertable wedge. Invertabot quickly pushed him off in round 1. In round 2 Death From Below immediatly drove himself off and Invertabot wins again.

I now had to fight TestBot 2.0 again. He'd have to beat Invertabot twice for the championship. In round 1 TestBot got under Invertabot and pushed him off. Hmmm. This kid is good. In round 2 Invertabot flips Testbot but Invertabot is rammed in the side gets pushed off! TestBot 2.0 wins. This kid is really good.

Ok, this is for all the marbles. Best two of three. The crowd was loving it. For some reason the spectators convinced Charles that TestBot runs better upside down! So, he starts the round inverted. Lucky me. He's no longer able to get completely under Invertabot! After some give and take pushing TestBot is shoved off the platform and round 1 goes to Invertabot. Charles wisely decides to start TestBot right side up next time. Round 2 was intense. TestBot got flipped over and both bots pushed each other in a mighty struggle. TestBot is almost pushed off but recovers. Eventually Invertabot got a good hold on TestBot and slowly pushed him off the platform for the victory and much cheering.
