Expulsion is a robot which competed in Series 9 and 10 of Robot Wars, entered by Brentwood School’s sixth form English department.
Expulsion runs on a two-wheel drive, and uses a unique curved front end. Its armour features several gaps to conserve weight, and the robot’s top is decorated with flame graphics, and the Brentwood School logo. Expulsion’s weapon is a black horizontal flywheel with four teeth. Uniquely, the teeth can retract back into Expulsion’s disc while the flywheel is accelerating. The robot’s name is cut out of the robot’s back panel. However, weight restrictions also required Brentwood’s steel armour to be thinner than the team intended. The team behind Expulsion also entered Suspension into the Inaugural King of Bots competition.
Robot Wars Series 9Edit
Expulsion competed in Episode 3, where it faced three veterans; Foxic, M.R. Speed Squared, and Heavy Metal. Team Expulsion demonstrated their weapon to Dara Ó Briain using a cardboard model, spinning the model disc in the opposite direction. Expulsion started the battle slowly, as it could seemingly only turn left, having struggled to enter the arena in the first place. This still allowed the team to get their weapon up to speed, but it was charged by Foxic, and then sustained a direct hit from M.R. Speed Squared. Heavy Metal pushed Expulsion towards Sir Killalot, where it was flipped by the arena spike, landing on its side before being knocked down by Foxic. Expulsion was rendered fully immobile, and sustained a glancing blow from M.R. Speed Squared. Sir Killalot moved Expulsion from its position, but it took more damage from two M.R. Speed Squared attacks, and was hit one last time when M.R. Speed Squared rebounded off Heavy Metal. Foxic had also been immobilised by the floor flipper, so Expulsion was counted out at the same time, and both were eliminated from the battle, while M.R. Speed Squared and Heavy Metal progressed.
After 'cease' was called, Sir Killalot picked up Expulsion and placed it on the floor flipper, where it was thrown up, although these attacks were not shown on television.
