"...it was a direct copy of blendo with advice from that team."
— Adam Clark on Facebook

Twister was a robot built by Adam Clark to enter Robot Wars. Adam Clark intended to qualify for the Fourth Wars with Twister. However, Twister failed to qualify because Adam Clark was unable to attend the qualifiers, and did not attempt to enter it into any subsequent series.

DesignEdit

"Basically it was a 3ft ring fitted with an internal chain drive running off a vertical tecumseh with a go kart auto clutch. It had a fibreglass geodesic dome. It actually ran, was extremely loud and took a little while to get up to speed. But boy did it spin!"
— Adam Clark on Facebook

Twister was a dome shaped full body spinner, based on American robot Blendo. It was powered by a Briggs and Stratton motor, and had a Go-Kart slip clutch.
