 "Size Matters" February 20, 2003  

Well, Steel Conflict 2 is a wrap and everyone had a blast. With well over a million robots in attendance the arena drop zones and killer KE weapons really took their toll.

Team Delta, the title sponsor, was on site providing spare part services and technical support to the builders as well as assisting in event flow management. Extra thanks to Bob and Beverly for their hard work in both promoting the sport and demonstrating (once again) why we are the leading vendor of combat robot parts.

Also special thanks to John Hoffman for helping set up, judging and being a perpetual good sport!

 Team Delta Launches New Look! January 30, 2003  

Team Delta is proud to launch our long-awaited overhaul of the site. In addition to its new look we also added a product checkout section (no more forms to mail in!) and a shopping cart system to handle your orders.

There are some areas that we left in the old style, namely the robot section and any archived stuff. So don't be alarmed when you click on something and the page "goes to black".

Let us know what you think!

 We have winners! November 22, 2002  
Congrats to the following four builders that have won free copies of Chris Hannold's new book, Combat Robots Complete:
  • Chris Dwight of Canton, MA
  • Greg Gerber of Santa Maria, CA
  • Chris Hirsch of Baltimore, MD
  • Peter Abrahamson of Burbank, CA
Thanks to all the people that entered (over 120 entries!)

Steel Conflict Video Released October 25 , 2002  

My pal Steve Brown has released the first video from his recent Pomona, CA event - Steel Conflict. In my opinion this is one of the BIG up and coming events in the robot fighting scene. So hey, give this one-man-show a hand and buy a copy. Steve has the work ethic needed to grow his event to a level we have not seen yet. That is what you all need and why I am a sponsor!
