Spud Showdown

Unread postAuthor: rcman50166 » Tue Mar 18, 2008 4:57 pm

elitesniper's Big Blue vs. rcman50166's "General"

Big Blue

"General"

Challenge
Who's gun seems more powerful. Contestants are required to make a damage vid displaying the raw power of their gun. Members will vote for the strongest gun based on damage to the targets.

Rules
Only one video may be entered
The ammunition must fall under spudfiles regulations
Multiple shots with multiple targets and ammunition is allowed
Only the specified guns may be used.
Grudge matches are allowed
No animal or person may be targeted in the video
other rules may follow

Voters
This is purely to see who can do the most damage to the strongest target. To make it easy on the voters, theoretical strength is not to be taken into account. Video editing should not be a determining factor also. Cannon asthetics are to be ignored along with functionality. Basically, the most awesome carnage wins!

Place Your Bets!!!

Judging by the video...you have no clue of what power really is...

that just looks like a "regular" pvc spudcannon firing at a door.
Not that there's anything wrong with that, it just doesn't strike me as
"most powerful canon on spudfiles"




I think that door should break in half if you did it right...

No the big blue. As I said in the other thread the big blue will "pawn tat genny n00b".
But he does have the advantage of a larger bore so you may want to get some of 2in or 3in pipe for the barrel.
I believe the general has more capable energy its just being wasted with its short barrel so if he lengthens it before the vid you will get "pawned" but if he doesnt you will "pawn" him.
i need to stop saying the word pawned.

So you're pitting a ~400 ft-lbs cannon against a ~1500+ ft-lbs cannon?

Edit... I finally watched the "general" video.
If you're going to make a video 2+ minutes long, you can at least include more than just one impressive shot and not tack on a ton of unnecessary credits.

I cant imagine the general is capable of more than 1000ft lb and the big blue Id say with heavy enough ammo and a large enough bore the big blue could do 800ft lb. actually i just made myself change my mind.
sorry elitesniper but the general will anialate targets that the big blue woulnt even dent.
the general is bigger
But at least i like your cannon more :)
