the ones i have seen are just RC bots
they are still fun to watch but not fully autonomous
even autonomous cars are not fully autonomous there is an operator
there is also RC robot wrestling which is fun
the bots are 2 feet tall or so and dressed like pro wrestlers
the latest big craze with big money at stake is people watching other
people play video games
the people playing are playing for a lot of money and the people
watching are nothing more than spectators
i can completely see driver-less car racing in the near future
i used to spend hours racing small electric rc cars
why not do it with life-size cars
guys with lots of money would gladly part with some to race
head-to-head in a RC driver-less car
no injuries and no loss of life
i think they would have no problem at all getting spectators to
come and watch that

A good number of the ones I bought about seven or eight years ago
broke. The ends are cast and *very* brittle. It's a PITA to have the
clamp break when the glue is wet (and it always is when the clamp

one concern i have is getting glue into the track
maybe i should just stick with good old bar clamps
they are hard to beat
