"I built Six-Pac with my brother and dad. It was built with the main competition in mind but we only got to the pinball event, which to be honest was perfect for us."
— Andrew Thorpe

Six Pac (also known as Six-Pac) was a robot that solely competed in the Pinball Competition held during Series 3 of Robot Wars. It finished third in Pinball with a score of 135 points, but failed to qualify for the main series, and did not enter any subsequent series thereafter.

Six Pac in the arena

Six Pac was a six-wheeled plough-shaped robot equipped with a lifting shovel and featuring a top speed of 8mph. It was very nippy and agile due to its six-wheel drive, but had little armour, and suffered from numerous radio interference problems which caused it to stop and start several times. These issues adversely affected Six Pac in both its Pinball run and its attempt to qualify for Series 3.

"We also had issues with Six-Pac cutting out at certain points throughout our heat, and especially when we were in front of the 75 points tyre!!!"
— Andrew Thorpe

Six Pac goes over the ramp

Although Six Pac failed to qualify for Series 3, it did take part in the Pinball side competition which was filmed and broadcast alongside the main series. It immediately knocked down one set of barrels, before escaping Sir Killalot and stopping just before the multi-ball release. After a few seconds, Six Pac hit the multi-ball release, before being boxed in by Sir Killalot and Matilda and driving past Sergeant Bash's 50-point target onto the arena spikes. It raised its scoop to knock down the remaining barrels, before suddenly stopping again as it spun, and kicking back into life for a clear run up the ramp. Matilda pushed Six Pac away as it went for the 75-point target, then Six Pac stopped again just within sight of the target, allowing Matilda to come in and flip it out of the arena with her tusks. Six Pac recovered from Matilda's attack to press Shunt's 50-point target instead, before finishing its run by going through the car doors and getting pushed by Sir Killalot. Six Pac scored a respectable 135 points, ultimately finishing third behind Razer (210pts) and Dominator (160pts).

"135 points! And that's a great score...well done, for the Six Pac team!"
