World Championship Chunk 2012: Torsion Class
The torsion class had a great year with every machine throwing over 1000ft, Chucky III broke 3000 ft again, and spectacular failures on almost every machine on the field.
Once again, Chucky 3 dominated the torsion lines. This machine now throws the pumpkin DOWN but due to the incredible amount of spin, the pumpkin will fly up and off into the distance. It is an amazing thing to see.
Onager suffered from a crushed inner frame after their first shot. Carbo's team stayed up late into the night on Saturday to prep Onager for two shots on Sunday. They complete their fixes, and got a pumpkin out even farther the next day.
Roman Revenge bent their arm after their second shot. The third shot was on the same day, and they somehow managed to de-torque, swap in last year's arm, and retorque before their second shot a few hours later. It even threw farther for the third shot. Amazing!
Ethos had a great first shot, but their arm exploded during their second shot. The video below shows the excitement.
Gaul Buster worked hard all weekend, suffering from broken arm stops, pullback issues with their new arm, and throwing pie on their second shot. They persevered and came close to beating their personal best from last year.
We beat our personal best, broke gear, and created the worlds first large compounded Ballista. It was a great year!
