Here's a hammer because I've pretty much exclusively been building verts and flippers lately. Really happy with the front end of it, but the beta motor forces me to make the bot a lot taller than I really want it to be, so it doesn't look as good as I think it could. Maybe I'll just swap the hammer to a vert instead  heck

In terms of specs, the front is pretty much all steel, rest is Alu as usual. Drive is 2 TWMR2s. Weighs like 789kg.

Have you considered an OK motor? Or is that a toxic CB2 component for ya?
It's less bad than the flat, but I'd still rather not
I thought Overkill motor is not OP and cheaty

I don't think the covering itself looks bad, just that it gives the bot too much height. It's maybe 10-20cm taller than I'd like it to be, but the beta is mounted as low as it'll go (on a hexplate which is inside the bottom panel)

Updates galore. Switched from a geared beta to a short VDMA. Much happier with the height of it now, as well as the overall looks. Also used the extra weight to give it some wedgelets, and make some parts steel that weren't previously. Still got like 40KG to play with too.

Super posted his PWS 6 lineup so I guess I'll post mine, featuring a super low-effort splash.

Updated Azimuth for MM3 after V2's dismal performance in MM2. Still a chassisbot, and retains the two wide mediums for the flipper, though the arm is lighter now so it should be more powerful. Drive has been dropped back to 2 TWMR2s as the astros on V2 made the turning circle terrible (like on Speed Demon), though the wheels are somewhat exposed now, which is a consequence of just going for an overall more compact bot. I don't think it looks too bad though. Just generally cleaner than the old version overall, and should be more effective too

Absolutely toxic.

In other news I made some slight changes to it before MM3. They mostly revolve around the wedgelets, which I've switched to a set of steel triangles as an experiment. My hope is they'll give opponents a more direct route to the top of the flipper due to the shallower angle of them, and also that they'll resist damage better than conventional wedgelets. Coincidentally I also think they look better. Could be a total misstep but there's only one way to find out

On a building kick lately with all of these high-profile tournaments starting up again. Another one for MM3 here. It's a followup to Toreador, which got surprisingly far and beat some surprisingly good bots in MM2 (mostly via luck). So he's back and angrier (and thiccer) than ever. 2WD NPC fasts rather than 4WD TWMRs this time which actually constitutes a buff speed-wise, and retains the beta motor flipper. Overall I just wanted to make the bot seem beefier and tankier which I think I achieved, though I really struggled with weight and hence had to cut some corners. Armour is a mix of steel and Ti at the front and alu everywhere else, and power is a black and 2 battlepacks which has me apprehensive about power. Hopefully it'll be okay.

Aaaaaand here's my completed MM3 lineup. 1 bot which has seen minor changes compared to MM2, 3 total rebuilds, and 2 bots that have never competed in MM before.

 
MM3 Splash.png


Here's the rundown:

Sabre V - Barely changed from MM2. Only real change is the wedge being shuffled forward.

Speed Demon VI - Totally rebuilt multiple times. Much better wedge, stronger armour, shorter wheelbase, just overall cleaner

Azimuth - Total rebuild as you saw. Not expecting much still though, but the flipper should be more powerful now at least

Zealot - As in PWS

Cicada - Totally reworked since you last saw it. Cleaned it up a bunch overall, and swapped the disc to a microvore as the old disc skimmed the ground and did next to no damage. Here's a pic of the old one for context as to how much cleaner it is now

Toreador - Another total rebuild. Down to 2WD now but it's actually faster this time. Should be tankier too. Not expecting it to get the same crazy run it did last time though.
