What weapon motor do you have?

Good to see you finally giving DSL a crack! Let's see what advice I can give you:

  • You have way too many teeth on that weapon. That's, what... twelve Typhoon teeth? I can't tell if they're Large or Small, but either way, that's very spammy.
  • The disc has zero support, it's just floating in mid-air. That automatically makes it un-IRL. Take another look at 259 and you'll notice the triangular supports holding the weapon in place.
  • Four Slimbody motors doesn't seem like fast enough drive for a HW, especially with those tiny wheels. Once you've reduced the number of Typhoon teeth you can easily bump it up to TWM3Rs.
  • Bizarrely, I think you've gone the opposite route to most rookies and added too few batteries. Two reds will (IIRC) power 4 motors for 3 minutes, and you have 5 motors, not counting the burst for (what I assume is supposed to be) the srimech.
  • You're going to need some armour panels to protect the chassis, because any horizontal spinner is going to chew it to death in a matter of seconds.

A couple of questions, too:

  • Do the teeth bang against the floor when the weapon spins? It looks like they do from the internals shot, but you seem to be driving it okay in the test area.
  • What's the weapon motor? I assume it's a Perm of some description, but I can't see it.

Its a good start, but it could use a little work

For one, I'd  say you have too many batteries, at most you'd need 1 black and 2 reds. Also, your supports should be more triangular, and  actually cover the entirety of the weapon chain. A minor recommendation would be to learn chassis skinning, since that skin is pretty unsightly

Its certainly a good start though! If you want some more advice, I'd definitely advise checking this guide out:
