Built by Bots FC cofounder Matt Bores, Emulsifier is a treaded vertical spinner known for dishing out devasting hits.
After competing as a traditional two-wheel drive vertical bar spinner at Motorama in 2018 and 2019 with limited success, Matt made the switch to treads and a disc for the 2020 event. The wins came quickly at 2020 Motorama as Emulsifier compiled seven wins before losing in the finals to Jamison Go's MegatRON. Emulsifier did go on to win the Most Destructive award for 2020 Motorama.
After a long layoff from competing, Emulsifier returned to competition at the September 2021 NHRL Event. In its first fight, Emulsifier broke the record for the Fastest knockout of all time in the 30lb class with a 6 second victory over Toolbox. Ultimately, Emulsifier took home the title with a destructive win over rival Dragon Princess in the finals.
In the 2021 Championships, Emulsifer knocked out its first three opponents to make the Finals against MegatRON. In the first fight, Emulsifier's minibots, Foam Bot and Driving Practice, were able to disrupt the match leading to a decisive knockout victory. In the second fight, the mini bots were less effective, as Emulsifier got stuck on top of Foam Bot which led to Jamison Go having a free shot on Driving Practice and destroying the bot in the process.
With only 20 minutes to fix the bots before the final trilogy fight, Bots FC pushed to get the backup Emulsifier ready while deciding which remaining minibots to use. After deciding not to use their 1/6 scale Monster Truck mini bot, Bots FC opted to go with their lone remaining mini bots, the SMEETLEWEIGHT RTR COMBAT ROBOT kit designed by Smeeeeeeeee builder Joe Fabiani and Jump Bot, which is just an Air Hog Jump Fury toy.
At approximately 1 AM, the final fight took place. Failing to account for the beat up floor proved costly as the SMEETLEWEIGHT RTR COMBAT ROBOT struggled to move in the arena. Soon after, Jamison Go was able to get under Emulsifier to line up a hit. Sensing an imminent hit, Jump Bot drove in for a suicide strike on MegatRON's spinner in an attempt to slow it down and appeared to be disintegrated in the process. Without its minibots help, MegatRON was able to control the fight and win the Championship. At the end of the fight though, Bots FC found out that Jump Bot had actually survived its suicide mission only to end up stuck hidden behind Fluffy for the remainder of the fight. Sleep deprived, Bots FC could now finally go home.
After a long layoff, Emulsifier returned to compete at the November 12th 2022 event. Showing up at 8AM, the team was forced to wait around for ten hours before their first fight against The Beast. The Beast proved to be stiff competition as it took a plethora of hits before losing in a Judges Decision.
Since Tryhard did not come to the event, Emulsifier then fought the new 30lb bot VacaTank from the team behind MilkTank. The VacaTank team, dressed as cows, proceeded to engage in "HILARIOUS trash talking" which in their words was "as terrifying to them [Bots FC] as a tiny puppy yapping at a giant dog’s feet…"
Sensing a coaching opportunity, Bots FC Head Coach Eric Wrigley told the team to ignore the Vacatank team's theatrics, which we were told included a loud "MOOOOOOO!" before the fight. Eventually though, the fight started and Emulsifier was quick to pop VacaTank's decorative balloon. Emulsifier then shoved VacaTank into the wall which exploded their eggbeater weapon. Stuck on the wall but still mobile, Fluffy moved in to unstick VacaTank while Emulsifier started to celebrate. Coach Wrigley then yelled at Emulsifier driver Matt Bores to "hit them again!" as the fight was not finished. Following team orders, Emulsifier proceeded to destroy VacaTank once and for all.
After a long delay and a few more energy drinks, Emulsifier fought Yahoo in the finals, which was built by the legendary Chad New of Copperhead fame. Copperhead, known throughout the world for its epic fights at BattleBots, achieved cult-hero status early in its career after its knockout victory over Rusty. If you were to ask any real competitor on the show today, they will tell you that there are no builders more respected than the team behind Copperhead. Chad New, Pete C, and RumHam XXX builder Luke Quin, who is currently the Copperhead Captain, are all living legends worthy of being in the future NHRL Hall of Fame when the time comes for it to be built.
But anyway, there was still a final to be held. Unfortunately for Chad and Pete, Yahoo was suffering from having had to work its way through the losers bracket and did not have a working weapon going into the final. Forced to use just its forks, Yahoo managed to control the first half minute of the fight before taking a massive hit from Emulsifier which bent its forks inward. Always the sportsman, Chad then implored Matt to continue to hit Yahoo and put on a show for the fans. After a series of huge hits, Emulsifier knocked out Yahoo for the 30lb Championship and the coveted Golden Dumpster.
