Marco Antonio Meggiolaro wins Robocore Winter Challenge 2018!
Competing with his D2 robot "Mini Puma" in the beetleweight division of the Brazilian Robocore Winter Challenge, Marco won out over 58 other beetles, going 7-0 in his fights. Marco's overall record with his D2 is 24-2, a testament to Marco's excellent driving skills. Congratulations Marco! Here's a great video of one of Marco's fights on the way to winning. His D2 with the Wolverine claws performed well versus an aggressive drum spinner. We even get to see how well the D2 with Wolverine claws works when inverted! https://youtu.be/JfU2hQDv5oY

Videos from "Things don't always go your way" post
Lots of requests for videos from the fights. Overall, the D2 did very well. The last fight still came down to a judges decision. Per the driver: "Here are all of the fights. Fight #2 damaged my 4c Li-p, I was actually lucky it did not burst into flame, after that I went to the back up 3c. With some driving practice I think I will do quite well next time – most likely at Robo Games." #1- https://youtu.be/_wVlB134fpQ?list=PLY36rcBTdCHXrpmkUo3R-F5LKrXqI65ZP #2 - https://youtu.be/m0oI1WBzf14?list=PLY36rcBTdCHXrpmkUo3R-F5LKrXqI65ZP #3 - https://youtu.be/xuLOtSz8j1w?list=PLY36rcBTdCHXrpmkUo3R-F5LKrXqI65ZP #4 - https://youtu.be/WpEnq5zbg1E?list=PLY36rcBTdCHXrpmkUo3R-F5LKrXqI65ZP #5 - https://youtu.be/xv1fos9oTyk?list=PLY36rcBTdCHXrpmkUo3R-F5LKrXqI65ZP #6 - https://youtu.be/Y5HxMCWMYtc?list=PLY36rcBTdCHXrpmkUo3R-F5LKrXqI65ZP
