Design Philosophy: Proto-Type 4 was designed and constructed by Don Meyer. Don designed the chassis to absorb the energy of most types of weapons, which it does very well.
The weapon is powered by a large Chrysler Gear-Reduction starter motor - being nearby when it spins up is enough to make anyone nervous! Proto-Type 4 debuted at Battlebots Season 4.0 where it fought bravely against another "tired" 'bot, Road Rage. The match ended when P-T 4 lost one of its drive chains. Don has announced the retirement of this, his first Battlebot. But he promises that another one is on the way!
