Nice.
No its not

Try texturing your bot with a unique paint job. Look at bots in my 1.0. AI pack (soon to be released) for ideas on paint jobs.

Oh, and adding distinct paint jobs will make your bot more recognizable as a favorite, too.

no need for armored wheels when they're inside your chassis. Use those High-traction DSL wheels.

You have at least 70 kgs of weight left. Use it to stop the robot from dying in three hits.

Rebuilt why not DS

I agree with the consensus. You can make it a bit more compact, and you can definitely do better with the skin. Not sure you need two DSL discs on the wheels, just one should do fine. As for batteries, I think two Battlepacks is actually just enough for four motors, so you're fine there.

Are the extenders in the middle just to support the weapon and/or hold the eyes on? You could probably optimise those to save some weight (not to mention the empty space at the sides), and then try and put some more armour on the front.

That's a pretty nifty chassis design, but as others have pointed out, it looks quite exposed and vulnerable to horizontal spinners. As much as I love Colsons, I actually agree with Redalert on this one: swap the wheels for something lighter and grippier, like the DSL wheels. You also have the space and weight to upgrade to the Storm front-hinge bursts for even more power. I have to say, though, this is possibly your best-looking bot so far. It just needs bulking up to meet the weight limit and not get massacred by HSes.

First thing, Titanium 5 > Plastic 10. Always.
Second thing, the bot looks rather tall, (I can't quite tell from the angle of the photos).  Tall is usually never a good thing.
Third thing, you have a lot of empty space in the robot.  Either shrink the circle or don't use it at all.

Ngl those wheelguards are super messy and there is quite a bit of that beloved "empty space" You're showing improvement, though.

With Superbot, yeah I agree. I also think you can at least swap the two back TWMR2's drives with two NPC Fasts by rearranging the internals on the back slightly with the space you have. And also definitely increase your armor with the weight you have. Steel 1 is weak
