Carbide
Carbide is a competitor in the 2016 Series of Robot Wars. It was built by Dave Moulds, formerly a member of Team Hurtz, and Sam Smith, formerly of Tiberius. Carbide is an invertible, black and green robot with two-wheel drive and a large horizontal bar spinner at the front, considered the most powerful one in Robot Wars history, measuring 85cm in length, weighing 25kg and spinning at 2300RPM. The weapon operates at 20 horsepower to inflict massive damage. The robot also features a wedge at the rear to deflect other spinners and push other robots around. Carbide's armour consists of 5mm military grade steel, and 8mm aerospace grade aluminium. Its deadly spinning bar saw it reach the Grand Final, before losing the final battle to Apollo on a judges' decision.
