This is a Sumo-Bot contest not a "battle-bot" contest. Except for rare
occurrences the robots aren't even damaged.
I don't like to design, build and program something just to have it
destroyed for fun.

Bear in mind that Mr. Frye has a vested interest in seeing robots bump
into/destroy each other - he sells them.
