LastRites
Last Rites is a heavyweight bar spinner from Team Hardcore Robotics. It was the 2008, 2009, and 2012 ComBots Champion, and is one of the "Big Three" in US combat robotics, alongside Sewer Snake and Original Sin [1]. Last Rites first competed at the 2005 ComBots Cup where it went 2-2. 


Design and Build Edit

Last Rite's frame is made from 1 inch Chrome Moly Tubing chrominum-molybdenum alloy tubing used where light strong structural tubing is needed for example aircraft [2]. The completed frame is around 18% of the total weight of the robot, and needs to be replaced roughly every 2 events.  The robot is driven by two NPC T-64s DC electric motors at 33v and the weapon motor is an ME0708 (also known as the Etek-R) running at 58V.  Last Rights has a range of weapon bars of various lengths (and therefore different tip speeds), weights, and densities. 

Event History Edit

ComBots Cup I Edit

RoboGames 2006Edit

Last Rites lost both it's first round fights to Devil's Plunger, and SJ. [3]

ComBots Cup II Edit

RoboGames 2007Edit

Last Rites had much more success the following year at Robogames 2007 beating Eugene, Brutality, Sir Loin, and returning champion Original Sin, before losing in the finals to Sewer Snake. [4] Eugene was KO'd in 27 seconds. [5] Brutality- armed with a flamethrower and a wedge (and no spinning bar) came close to beating Last Rites after Last Rites lost a wheel during their match. However after 73 seconds Brutality tapped out after being KO'd [6]. Sir Loin was KO'd in around 15 seconds after having it's spinning "egg beater" weapon pulled off [7]. Original Sin was next, after tearing off two of Original Sin's Tires within the first few seconds and a third within 20 seconds Original Sin survived a total of 80 seconds before the last tire was removed and they tapped out [8]. In the final Sewer Snake removed two of their six wheels to make weight available for a heavier scoop. During the fight Sewer Snake upended Last Rites and wheel and motor unit detached from Last Rites. Struggling with mobility Last Rites Survived 1 minute 10 seconds before Sewer Snake trapped them on the arena wall [9].
