Team Icewave shared BattleBots's post.

Finally the moment we've all been waiting for! Our full fight against Team Hammertime / Teamxd SubZero is now up on YouTube. We thought this fight was exciting because it not only showed off the sheer power of Icewave's blade, but also that our drive train could handle pushing around another robot for a full 3 minutes.

Big thanks to our sponsors for helping make Icewave so awesome this year: Double Robotics, SonicWords, Inc., VEX Robotics, SolidWorks
