Hiya my dude and welcome.

Ill do a full rundown of the bots once i get home but from wgat i can see you have a plethora of creative ideas keep it up.  Big whipper and death of wheels are stand out bots to me. My only issue with the other bots is theyre rather messy on creation. But certainly great for a newcomer. Best of luck and i hope you stick around

big whipper is p neato, the rest are cool too but could do with little touchups like a skin or making the bot much smoother with extenders and such. the flipper is rad too but would be much better if the panels were moved inwards so there's no ugly gaps

also if you do choose to post a lot of bots in one post, try and put most of them in spoilers so it doesnt kill all our browsers

is this bot don't lost all razors in a fight before do a damage thought

Eww.. Mechadiscs... We try to keep away from them (or limit them to one mecha per one), otherwise, the bots are great for a newcomer!

I noticed that because I think mechadiscs just have a really effective shape and I wont submit it anyway because of that.;P
Its just here to kill some bots when I'm in the mood to. xD

From what I'm seeing, these robots aren't that bad for first attempts, but there needs to be some definite polish in them before they'd be considered great. Stuff like that turtle shell spinner (which JDG would approve) and Big Whipper are great off the bat, if a lil' bit weaponspammy, but others like half the VS'es and the tri-mechavore HS wouldn't be considered IRL in tournaments due to intersecting axles and the like or motors going into the weapon, weapons into weapons and so-on.

That being said, I see potential in your robots. Hope you continue to build and improve. ^_^

What do you mean by half the VS? :o
I heared that it would be ok then the motors are sticking out the chassis (like weaponmotors)
I The chains arent touching eatchother too! :3
How should I build Bots then? I mean I tried to make them so efficient as possible and still make a little bit kosmetic. What should be my tactic then? :o

Double-Sided Terror is better than most bots because of it being a creative and it looking like something you would have seen on TV in the 2000s. If you want "Red Dead" to really throw robots around you can make it a bar spinner with two giant hammers.

Thank you!
I dont use hammers because I know they are banned for spinners, RIP.
But I'm happy that he can throw bots without hammers ;P

1: Half of the VS'es. Thank my bad grammar. :V
2: Motors sticking out the chassis are okay in IRL as long as you give them adequate support or look like they could be bolted onto somewhere IRL. Something like Red Dead may require some extra supports to make it not look like it'd fall and break or something.
3: Even with that in mind, I don't think a flywheel in the center of the robot is even possible IRL. Personally 2 flywheels would be fine enough IMHO, its damaging enough as is.
4: My personal design ethos? Make them look as good as possible while being capable of fighting. While people have different opinions of IRL, its best if you try and experiment around to see what works best for you.

If anything doesn't make sense, then sorry about that - I'm not the best when it comes to wordings. :V

Don't worry I know that feeling since I'm German xD

1. Well... what is VS'es? xD
2. Thats really true. xD  I just tried to make the weapon as heavy as I could possibly do! xD (Motors+Discs=~500kg)
I guess I just need to imagine how I would build it in real life!
3. What do you mean by that? :o
4. I try to make Weapons they are durable enough so they don't break of, leaving my bobot basicly naked! xD So I dunno what I should do xD
I have a showcase! :3

VS is an acronym for Vertical Spinner.
HS would be horizontal
FS is for the face. Like having a small grinder on the front.
SnS is for Sit and spin.
It's actually illegal to write spinner in some Eastern European nations, so we created these expressions.
