First of all, for those of you unfamiliar with the ball sport Techball, check out this youtube video which sums it up perfectly. It's usually played with four players, 2 vs 2, since there are four different channels in the Power Functions system.

Here's my contestant for a future Lowlug Techball game, The Fleshwelder. It's an evil machine from space from the future from the pits of hell.

It uses two Power Functions M motors, one to power each wheel. I'll shoot a video of it in daylight tomorrow and post it here.

Looks pretty cool, but the name doesn't really suit it. More gruesome details could have been added to make it live up to it's name.
For an optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, it is half empty. To the engineer, it is twice as big as it needs to be.

Hey Arthas,
I'd love to add more cool evil things, but in a Techball match your vehicle really takes a beating. The trick is to build something that can survive all those crashes, and that gets harder the more details you want to add.

That thing looks wicked! :thumbup:
I totally get the fact that you have to make it sturdy, would very much like to see it in action some time!
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!
