Yellow teeth is cool, but lots of empty space and very little battery power. If that's one black, that will run out of power before the match is over, so go for 2. What armour is it?

While I like both of the robots, I think both could be greatly improved.

For instance, the first's chassis is way too big. And an astro shouldn't really be powering anything other than a LW but this looks like a MW.

The second is good but could easily be invertible. Pop a couple of casters on either side of the disc and move the drive motor up. 

What are the weights of these robots, too?

The first one is a LW though, but the problem with this thing is speed
and also the second one, it can't be invertible since the chassis is way to high and If I lower the chassis the Weapon motor will clip off the chassis.

move the wheels outside and move up to tornados. if it's still not invertible, you may have to move up to n12's. get rid of the hypno teeth and get typhoon teeth in its place or make do with just two on each disc. alternatively lower the chassis and place the weapon motor there with RA2CF (assuming you have it)

or u could yolo and get Pussycat style drive with 4 wheels

the lw is generally pretty clean but some static wedges (some beater wedges, angle extenders or even taz wedges) flanking the flipping arm and some supports for it would complete the look imo

Yup the new Yellow Teeth looks Underweight, and Ciralyn looks nice with those wedges.

Yellow Teeth needs an entire rework. The extenders are messy and so are the internals. Also, what weight class is it?

I'm sure you could make a drum spinner invertible.

I think yellow teeth went off the rails a bit. I think your first setup was better, so I'll keep my suggestions to it.



Try using a shorter perm to move the motor as close to the drum without clipping or going out of the chassis. I don't know what those two blocks are (ballasts?) so lose them. Try moving up to NPC drive motors in the new space left by moving the perm, also try to position so you can use large enough wheels to be invertible. You can then remove srimech and save weight there. If you move the wheels outside the chassis for this (probably gonna need to) I'd suggest building wheel guards with flipper segments or something

You do realize those are supports right?
This is the new Yellow Teeth, St 5 I'm going for simplicity here. And oh, how effective are DSL Bars on a drum?

you really need a support on the other side if you're going to do that

yea youre better off using beaters or matilda teeth. But i do recall someone making a really unique drum setup using a hexplate and dsl bars. Pretty much useless of course, but looked cool as heck

So far so good. All thats lrft now is fot the other side to have supoorts too

Do you mean the sections of chasis? I meant the black squares i circled (ballasts?).  I like the new internals layout, though in most cases one black batt should be enough for 3 motors.

So, Apparently I updated it, I put some support at the side, and put some overlapped Razors.

This is one of my Brother's bots, Probably Ti 5? Need help so my brother can build better bots

No, the wheels have to be inside the chassis, or at least inside something so that you can't see the disc passing through them.
