Arrow Steves Weight Loss Guide

It has come to my attention that Americans are very weight conscious. We should reflect this axiom of life toward our robots.
The following rules for building (and eating) healthy were developed in the parking lot of BallyTotalFitness in Ithaca NY.

1. Cut down on your dairy products. Especially swiss cheese. Lightning holes are only so good. When it comes to being light, you have to think light. Now all you drivers go play some video games.

2. Carbs are the enemy. We dont like carbs! Even though carbon fiber is lightweight and incredibly strong, it is evil, and illegal.

4. No more red meat! Although meat has a high iron content, and tends to taste $@#$@#$@#$@# bloody good, cast iron gears are definitely not the best idea if your watching your weight.

7. If all else fails, jump on the tread mill for a couple of hours. The most essential thing to this competition is a skilled driver. This year most robots wont need more than a solid drive system to be successful. Take off all other unnecessary components so you can be underweight but drive around and smash things!

9. All your bins are belong to us, team 639. Ph34r d4 |v|4573r

Dont make fun of me...!

Everyone knows the best way to lose weight is to turn the robot upside down, shake vigourously, and throw away anything that falls out.
