RACC lb99

RACC's appearance before battle.


Bob Smith, the grey half of the clusterbot built by Will Wright when competed in 1997

RACC was a lightweight robot built by the Robot Action League (Will Wright and Mike Winter to precise) that competed at the Long Beach 1999 BattleBots competition. It was a multibot, consisting of two parts: a grey thwackbot with a flexible tail (called Bob Smith which was previously entered in the 1997 US Robot Wars by Will Wright, the builder of Chiabot), and a red robot armed with an overhead spinning bar (this robot was named X11), a continuation of the X series of robots which won the US Robot Wars middleweight championship in 1994). A third antweight robot constructed of servos and foam, named the "Eep" (Emergency escape pod) could also be deployed if one of the two main robots stopped working. At this time, a multibot would only be declared immobilized if half of a robot's moving parts were immobilized, so deploying the Eep would keep the multibot in the competition. However, RACC lost both of its battles and never returned to fight in another BattleBots competition. The Robot Action League also competed in the same tournament with Rasta and Tentoumushi.

RACC stood for "Robot Action Combat Cluster", but the robot was originally going to be named SPAR.

Long Beach 1999

RACC's first opponent was The Crusher. The Crusher won by crowd vote and RACC was placed in the loser's bracket to fight other multibot Spike of Doom. Spike of Doom won by crowd vote and RACC was eliminated from the tournament.

RACC wasn't finished, however, as it participated in the kilobot royal rumble at the end of the tournament.
