I have searched before but could not find any topics on this,
How do you increase the size of the radar (and info box)

Options->GUI Settings->Radar & Panel Size

If you want to go beyond the maximum, then you could always try to use an older version, before it was restricted, Version 2.0.2 is used by a few people for just this reason.
I personally think that such older versions should not be supported and that it gives an unfair advantage, but that's a different topic.

You can also find a folder called My BZFlag Files (It comes when you download BZFlag, mines in My Documents) Go to 2.0 folder, open Config, find a line that should say
#set radarsize * ( * being the number it is set to) and change that so whatever size you want. Also get rid of the '#' or else it wont work. This has no real advantage, other than a number scale instead of a [---------------O------] scale

After the release of 2.0.2 the client limits the radar size to a maximum of 30.

thanks Mark and Bambino
But even 30 is a little to big for what I want
