Overcutter is pretty cool. Have you considered moving the drive motors up 1/2 ticks and/or using wide ant wheels in order to reduce the ground clearance?
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

Don't think of it yet. Will try to BFE it up as you said that you mentioned it. Idk if I have the weight for wide ants though

IIRC wide ants are .5kg lighter than large ants but don't quote me on that edit: nvm thought you were using large ants not smalls

Made another new bot, this time upgrading OverChopper Gen II into OverChopper Gen III. This time, it features a new, more unique chassis. It also have two NPC Fasts with small Colsons, a long and ant batts, 6mag for the weapon, all aluminium extenders and panels, and a bar mpunted at 22.5 degree angle with 50x150 DSL bar plus some aluminium extenders, two large typhoons, and two large beaters. The armor is also Alu5. Weight is 799.6

Double post, but also upgraded my SHW, OverCleaver, into OverCleaver Gen II. It has 4 TWMR2 drives, two longs and maybe two ants IIRC, Ti5 armor, all aluminium extenderwork, and Dual Perm motor. The bar is also mpunted at 30 degrees and doubled, with two 50x150 bars, four large typhoons, and four large beaters. Weight is 1199.2

Decided to beef up Nature's Defender by making a HW version, for BSRaven's tourney. It weighs 797.0. It now has a whole steel plate rather than titanium, extra ant batts and intercooled batt, additions to flipping arm, hinged wedgelets, Ti5 armor, etc.

 

 

 


So, the wedgelet is like that in the internal pic because of pause break. It's actually normal

looks alright from what I can see, ant batts are pretty useless so you can always ditch a few of them to make other upgrades

Tbh, idk what to do, and I don't want to panel my chassis either. It's also meant to be beefed up from the CW version, so. Also, just want to say, but it has a piston too. Don't have pic of it though, but not sure if a piston that runs almost parallely with the the flipping arm, only slightly angled away from it, is legal or not. May make a diagram if I can

Made a HW version of V2. 795.2 in weight. Made the forks a bit longer, made the wedge longer, added wheelguard and extenderwork, replaced batt with one long and one ant, armor replaced with St5 IIRC, and added steel shark teeth to the disc

This honestly to me is one of the most "This could be a real robot" robots I've seen here. Not throwing a bunch of colors at it really sells that look too.

Using this showcase now. Sorry for the tourney being delayed because I spent time building and also have other stuffs IRL taking my time. Anyway, made Mecha Shapeshifter. It's an extenderbot designed to have every weapon type. However, I decided to make four first. They are axe, top front hinge flipper, flamer wedge, and VS. Splash pic:

VS is kinda :puke:. Axe looks nice except the bottom of the axe shaft looks a bit empty, some more filling in around the motor would be nice IMO. I like the idea of the flamer, but you're 50kg underweight and 1 medium tank is nowhere near enough for 2 flamethrowers.
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

Oof at the VS statement. As for the axe, so you mean like motor cover or fake axle. Honestly, the weight is 798.5, and Idk if I want to compromise the tail. And the flamer is meant more as a pusher tbh, and the flame is secondary actually. And it's one tank because I don't have enough space and too lazy to BFE too for more tanks by moving positions for compact internal

Also, extra pics

Made another new bot, called Eagle's Hawk. It's for OW4 and maybe MM3 too. 796.1 in weight. Steel5 armor. 2 NPC Fasts on the front and 2 Regular NPCs on the back. It also has two flatmotors, and four small typhoons. Two long and two ant batteries. OBJ chassis, which doesn't break the face limit. Wedgelets are steel for the extender, and ti and alu for the wedgelets itself. It won't do damage though of course for OW4, so it will just be durability against real weapon

Edit: Forgot the pic
