I also like however, I would imagine it being a SHW, using that drive must be slow. 2. The magmotors must also take forever closing the claws 3. How much it weigh & finally, you can put discs on the wheels instead of the plates

Love it. You fixed just about my only gripes with the HW version which were the flimsiness of the claws and the placement of the disc. Absolutely solid stuff.

WHOA. Me likey. I think it might look better with one large disc, rather than two small discs, but still... that is a good-looking SHW.

1: not as slow as you'd think it would be
2: yeah drawback of there not being proper crusher motors in dsl
3:more or less 1200 and the discs weight 10 kg's each and i would not be able to fit them due to the weight limit of 1200

Flip Frenzy 11
« Reply #128 on: September 23, 2017, 12:12:59 PM »
Ok so i finally managed to complete flip frenzy 11 the lexan flipper i was working on and i think considering its my first lexan bot its not bad but its certainly not the best either (also how do people get their components to show up in the game like batteries and circuit boards under the lexan?)





Weight: 798.7
Weapon(s): enormously powerful duel spring load setup flipper
Armor: Lexan, chassis heart is 10mm aluminium
Drive: 2x twmr3 drive motors
Power: 2x sealed lead acid batteries
Cost: 90 minutes in total
Notes: is a bit hard to control at times

Stag Weaponry redone
« Reply #129 on: September 23, 2017, 09:37:44 PM »
long story short i accidentally put a perm 80 instead of a 132 for stags spinning discs, swapped it for 132 couldn't fit 2 discs anymore so now stag has one big meaty disc which now rivals ripcage in the damage it deals if its able to get up to full speed (im sure f1krazy will be especially pleased with this  :laughing)

Yeah, I'd say it looks better with the one big disc like that. What teeth has it got on it? I can't quite tell.

it uses the nightmare teeth since they are one of the only ones that don't clip through the claw motors

Too many batteries. Also thought it'd work better as a 4 bar, but this is pretty nice

Ravager my first interchangeable weapon system bot
« Reply #134 on: November 08, 2017, 04:32:38 AM »
Its been a while since i've posted anything on this showcase but i had to put something up eventually so here it is  :laughing

(all bot configs below are right on the weight limit so i cannot add anything without removing something else first, just in case anyone has suggestions)

Ravager 259 configuration




Weapon: large DSL double toothed disc powered by a 132 reinforced perm motor
Armor: 5mm aluminium, titanium wedge and polycarb side panels
Drive: 4 X TWM3R2 drive motors
Power: 2 X 20kg Sealed lead acid battery
Cost: my Wednesday morning
Notes: if you couldn't guess from the name it was heavily inspired by 259
Strengths: very good at throwing an opponent around the arena
Weaknesses: without the disc its a generic wedge

Ravager drum configuration




Weapon: large drum with medium beaters powered by a 132 perm motor
Armor: 5mm aluminium chassis, titanium wedge and polycarb side panels
Drive: 4 X TWM3R2 drive motors
Power: 1 X 30kg car battery, 1 X 15kg intercooled battle pack
Cost: my Wednesday morning
Notes: one of the only drum bots that i have that works
Strengths: very good at getting underneath and ripping up the baseplate
Weaknesses: needs a srimech

Ravager Blender configuration




Weapon: 25X250 bar X 2 with 2 X 50X50 bars on each end and powered by a 6 mag gearbox
Armor: 3mm steel chassis, polycarb wedge and side panels
Drive: 4 X TWM3R2 drive motors
Power: 1 X 20kg sealed lead acid batttery, 1 X 15kg intercooled battle pack
Cost: my Wednesday morning
Notes: if hazard had a heavyweight counterpart
Strengths: Spinning bar is huge
Weaknesses: various sacrifices had to be made to have a weapon this size, it also is suspect to doing a mauler if one of the 50x50 bars is broken off

Ravager nightmare configuration




Weapon: Huge spinning doubled toothed disc powered by a reinforced perm 132
Armor: 3mm steel, aluminium wedge and polycarb side panels
Drive: 4 X TWM3R2 drive motors
Power: 1 X 20kg sealed lead acid battery, 1 X 15kg intercooled battlepack
Cost: 20 minutes
Notes: didn't take long to modify the 259 configuration
Strengths: Huge disc with huge teeth
Weaknesses: like with the blender config it sacrifices armor for huge damage potential

Ravager swinging configuration




Weapon: Gothick axe mounted on a spiked haft and powered by a large VDMA R/P piston
Armor: 5mm steel
Drive: 4 X TWM3R2 drive motors
Power: 2 X 20kg sealed lead acid batteries
Cost: 30 minutes
Notes: not tested as much as the other configs
Strengths: hugely powerful axe
Weaknesses: axe grows weaker the longer the fight goes on

well thats all the ravager configurations i've done right now and atm i can't think of anything else however if i do another i will put it on this post  :idea2:

(ps: before anyone moans about the wedge please know that i tried to put 45 degree angled slopes on but they took ravagers front wheels off the ground and im not redoing it all over again just for that).

The two VS configurations are bad on the eyes.  The other two aren't bad though.

I particularly like the bar on the HS.

Tbh if it weren't for the fact that some bots are too low for the bar to hit them it would be my favourite setup for ravager, its particularly useful how its so heavy it also acts as a srimech.

in what way are the vertical spinners bad on the eyes?

Lack of support on the motor and the minimalistic supports on the disc mostly.

with the amount of weight i have left on them i'd be lucky to even get a 10cm aluminium extender on there so its the best i could do, on a side note i just finished an axe config for ravager which i will have up on the showcase any moment
