    • Dortmund 2019.

      Perun did well actualy, only 1 failure in the weekend. A motorcan unscrewing itself from the front plate.
      The fact the machine isn't very aggressive and the driver, Babeth, is learning to cope with the new drives in combat situations, made the ranking not as high as some would like.

      Upgrades? Replacing the scoop and some wheel protection seem right.

      Nebelwerfer4 shows maturation. The 2 failures. A broken belt and a lose weaponmotor wire can be traced to me, not the inherent machine, what came trough with only some scrapes, dents or otherwise cosmetic issues.
      With a load of spare armor parts in our toolbox, non have been used, and won't be needed.

      Upgrades? With 500 grams+ in reserve, we can do a lot. But the main thing will be cleaning up the wiring and simplifiying maintenance. I doubt weaponpower needs an increase.
    • After Dortmund Life had other plans for Team RCC.

      But with Hannover comming up, we got together and started on Nebelwerfer earlier this evening.

      Armor looks chewed, but isn't weakened. So, we're still running the original parts. We'll replace the stickers tough. And maybe add some extra .

      The disk. Bushings are cracked and running on Ti is wearing them out faster than expected. So, we installed the spare disk, and the old one is getting new bushings later this weekend, becoming the spare. Try that with bearings, 4 events , and still working.

      Frame. 6mm Ti. Nothing to see, repair or replace.

      Electronics. Replaced some gaffatape labels and connector taping. Tested the whole, and we declare Nebelwerfer 4 ready.

      Perun. The wonky scoop-slider plate is replaced with a nicely curved one. Now to drive a few kilometers over road to grind it down.
      All the rest, just like Nebelwerfer, looks chewed, but nothing wrong in itself. Some new stickers ,and ready to rumble.

      Hannover came.

      Perun had 1 failure. The 2 motors uncrewed themselfs from the frontplates. Still, 3th place with a non pushing brick.
      Just getting more motorsupport, and Perun is ready for FACTs.

      Nebelwerfer. Look at the opponents, and that with only worn out belts as damage.

      We didn't even lose any wheels this event...
