A horizontal thwack-spinner designed to attack the sides of its opponents by whipping around its tail. Using its armored head it can control and set-up its opponent and then swing around to attack.
Minimizer is Stegosaurus-themed, and features a toothy smile, TPU spikes, and a speckled green paintjob. Though the spikes stick out far above the wheels they are designed to collapse, allowing the robot to be fully invertible. The robot is a scaled-up version of the 1lb Thagomizer, and features a heat-treated 4130 chromoly wedge and a 6061 aluminum frame.
The spinner is made of Ar500 Steel welded to a live shaft, and the entire weapon assembly is held together with a single nut. This allows the weapon to be mounted both above and below the robot. Two types of blades have been mounted so far: an asymmetrical disk and a double sided bar. The disk is used against wedges and heavily armored opponents, whereas the bar is used against foam, big-wheel, and horizontal spinners.
The drive system consists of removable pods that allow for replacement in under a minute. Rather than a conventional gearbox, the reduction is composed of a shock-absorbing pulley first-stage, and a durable chromoly gear second stage. The wheels are made from cast urethane with a printed nylon core and feature titanium "woodmagnet" spikes to help it get better grip on the wooden floor. With a inch of solid urethane and a 10mm hardened steel dead shaft they are designed to withstand most spinner hits.
Minimizer reached 3rd place in it's first event in March 2022 and qualified for the 2022 Finals.
