Be prepared to throw off every last remnant of RIS-only restrictions and delve into a large and fascinating section of robotic sumo: the M-class strategy. No longer will we build simple and small chassis and sumo-bots; no longer do rule sets tie us down to single-set restrictions; no longer is robotic sumo a “little game” of tiny bots and little pushes. In this strategy, just about every definable factor and variable are quite different from those contained in the small-and-fast strategy; you could almost say it’s a different game. In the midst of all these changes, one of them is extremely important: the plan of attack. Speed is still important, but having a powerful gear train for pushing is essential, too.
