OJ was a superheavyweight robot built as a senior class project by a team of Florida Atlantic University engineering students led by Victor Garaycochea, funded primarily with an $8,000 donation from the school. OJ competed in Season 3.0 of BattleBots. It was a full-body spinner with two cutting teeth on a tall cylinder. It performed well in competition, reaching the round of 32.
After Season 3.0, OJ was retired and replaced with High Impact, which didn't do any better.
Season 3.0OJ's first ever match was against Cyclone. OJ won on a 30-15 judge's decision and advanced to the final preliminary round, where it faced Dreadnought. OJ won on a close 24-21 judge's decision and advanced to the TV rounds, where it faced Phere. Phere won on a close 23-22 judge's decision and OJ was eliminated from the tournament.
OJ wasn't finished, however, as it participated the superheavyweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. It's unknown how well it performed, but it lost overall to Half Gassed and Whyachi.
