"Will this surf to Robot Wars glory?"
— Jonathan Pearce introduces Bondi Titch

Bondi Titch was the Australian representative in the Commonwealth Carnage of Robot Wars Extreme: Series 2. It was built by a member of the Robot Wars crew specifically for this purpose, making it a stock robot[1], with the driver chosen by a contest held in Australia. In its only battle, it was flipped out of the arena along with Weld-Dor 3 by Firestorm 4.

DesignEdit

Bondi Titch was a wedge shaped robot which was armed with a large hammer and armoured in polycarbonate. It was very manoeuvrable with top speeds of 12mph, but the team had little time to practise driving.

Firestorm IV vs Bondi-Titch

Bondi-Titch is flipped out of the arena

In its first round battle, Bondi Titch faced Firestorm 4, Weld-Dor 3 and Corkscrew. It was immediately overturned by Firestorm, but was re-righted and moved away from the English machine, which then threw Weld-Dor 3 out of the arena. Bondi Titch then activated the pit release and was nearly thrown from the arena by Firestorm again. Then, Corkscrew came in at full speed and attacked Bondi Titch. It attacked again and knocked a panel off the Brisbane machine. Bondi Titch then attempted to hammer Corkscrew and almost drove into the pit. Firestorm 4 threw it onto the arena wall in a CPZ, and unsuccessfully tried to flip it out three times. Next, Mr. Psycho came in and hit Bondi Titch with its considerably more powerful hammer. The Australian robot then escaped from the CPZ, but Firestorm flipped it over again, and then threw it out of the arena.

"The Australians surfing their way out of the competition it would seem."
