RedAce's DSL Showcase
« on: August 04, 2013, 06:46:41 AM »
Hey guys, it's a long time since I last posted, but I never really left this place. I have been lurking into the DSL showcase and casting my BOTM votes.

But I think it's now time to start my own DSL showcase.

Starting with this:



797.9 kgs, a bunch of ants, and a TWM3R powering the weapon.

Yes, I still need to create more original bots, but it's a start I guess.

You have been lurking, haven't you? That is a top-tier IRL bot right there, can't really suggest any improvements. Fairly unique srimech aswell.

RedAce used to be a no-nonsense pro stock builder in 2010/11. Even his first bots were ok before he learned to stack and do a few other tricks. He left us for 2 and a half years and now he's returned building DSL bots.

Wow RedAce! Welcome Back! I've been waiting for this day to happend. You were one of the most inspiring Stock builders to me.
And that's a nice bot, but I just wanted to know, Are you giving up Stock or are you just focusing on DSL for now?

I've gone into realm of IRL DSL but maybe I'll update that thread, although I feel it's long dead.

i'm not sure a twmr is powerful enough, you might want to try a perm or something
I feared you would say that, so I updated it.



799.8 now,
+more power
+stronger weapon
-weaker armor (Tite 5 to Alu 5)

But I also made a shell spinner, (even though that concept is just done to death.)



795.?, 4 ants.

if you want to, you could cut a bit out of the chassis and put the perm in that gap

that's a pretty cool shell spinner, you might want to change that skirt for something that look a bit sturdier though (look in urjak's showcase for a good example)

I'm well aware about that shell spinner he entered in Battlebots 7 and it's self righting mechinism, but i do think that the skirt my a little fragile, even if shell spinner goes nuts, I'll fix it later, as well as give my other irl bot some motor protection.

The shell spinner is really good. I love the beater setup.

Excellent work. Are the discs powered by a different weapon motors or by the same mag.
