Push to Exit is based on Shane Swan’s most successful live competitor, Envy, using the same setup of motors, speed controller, and drive system. Like Envy, Push to Exit is armed with a front-hinged flipper, running on low pressure CO2, which also functions as the robot’s srimech. Push to Exit is one of the fastest robots in Series 9 with a top speed of 24mph, and is also among the shortest, at 250mm in height. However, it has a high ground clearance at the rear.
Push to Exit competed in Episode 2, where Team S.Tek fought fellow heat finalists from the previous series in Team Saint, with their new robot Cherub, as well as PP3D and Draven, also veterans of the last series. Push to Exit made the most aggressive start of the four competing machines, as it shot across the arena towards Draven. Push to Exit missed its opponent and crashed into the arena wall, but quickly turned around and came in with another strong drive, barging Draven out of the way and shooting under Cherub, which flew up and over Push to Exit as a result. Push to Exit then drove at Cherub and slipped underneath its front, before missing with an attempted flip as Cherub slid out the flipper's range. After an period out of the action, Push to Exit continued its duel with Cherub, but just as it got underneath its opponent, PP3D came in with a shattering hit which sent Push to Exit hurtling across the arena floor. After the hit, Push to Exit showed no signs of movement, and was counted out along with Draven - which had just suffered terminal damage at the hands of PP3D and Shunt. This left Cherub and PP3D as the only two robots mobile, with both progressing to the Head-to-Head round, while Push to Exit exited the competition.
