it's got the wedge edges on the front you cheater

Pretty solid overall tbh, if you are trying to make the motor look less sticking out, maybe cover it with a drum?  It might look a bit ugly, but if you can make it work then more power to ya.
I considered a drum but 2 things made me decide against it. The first is that even the largest drum doesn't fully cover a perm 132, and the second is that it'd still have the dumb hump which is the main thing that makes it ugly currently.

Did some work on it.

- Changed the perm mounting to both shuffle it forward a bit and also lower it down a tad
- Added drums to somewhat cover the perm
- Moved the teeth to an SD style setup with the 4 smalls arranged in a pseudo 2-tooth setup

Think it looks a fair bit better

That bot looks really good! I'm not sure about the wedge effectiveness tho. Anyways it's good to see a bit more of an unconventional vert.

The entire goal of this thing was pretty much to not rely on a wedge. The idea was to try to do something similar to death roll and just lift opponents up with the weapon itself. The wedge edge is mostly just there for aesthetics sake, and I've considered removing it.

I’d recommend using a bar instead of a flywheel, tbh. It might not look as good, but flywheels tend to get sideswiped a lot easier.

I've been using discs for a pretty long time without too many issues. I much prefer them aesthetically speaking over bars too so I'm gonna stick with a disc

If it works as he wants it to in terms of effectiveness and aesthetics then he won't rly have a reason to want to change it.

I have caved in to meme pressure and brought back literally the first bot I ever posted on GTM. This one is just a little CW for MrMatthews' tournament that's coming up. I basically just took the old Tommib formula and dropped it down to CW. Thoroughly unspectacular but hey that's what happens when you revive a bot that was made when you're a scrub, but I didn't want to be that guy who builds a standard ass 4WD gutripper and then slaps the name of one of my old bots on it as though it's a successor, so I mostly left the formula alone, but with a few modern touches like wedgelets. 2WD NPC fasts, Perm 80 for the weapon, though I may try to crowbar a 132 in tomorrow and see how ugly it is, since I doubt an 80 can self right it, and it will also probably stop dead as soon as it hits anything.

If you want to know why this happened, blame Plerco, Hop and Cringey

Shock, horror, it's a new bot. Double shock: it's a flipper. Had the idea for this in my head for a while and finally got round to executing it. There's a few areas that could be cleaner as I'm a tad rusty but overall I'm pretty happy with the result. 2 NPC fasts, 2 medium VDMAs, standard sh**

Guess I'll drop my bot that's gonna be competing in Cringey's thing now signups are pretty much over. Touch messy in places but hey it was built quickly and at least it exists unlike SOME PEOPLE'S  :dumb)

Also possibly a touch similar to Claymore/Sabre. Didn't start out that way but convergent evolution will do that. If you put them side by side they do look pretty different, honest

Revisited my single tooth vert from a while ago and gave it a visual update. Also switched from 4WD slimbodies to 2WD TWMR2s. May throw this in discord wars or some sh**. Won't win anything but it maybe looks neat IDK

An update. Managed to find a weapon setup that massively reduced the weight and allowed me to get 2 small typhoons instead of 1, while still being asymmetrical and still pretty well balanced (it's maybe a hair shaky compared to the previous setup but it's not bad at all. I've seen worse from some balanced weapons). I also skinned up some of badnik's disc covers with my terrible skinning skills in order to cover the discs since the new setup used shell discs instead of DSL discs. All in all pretty happy with this thing now

It's static so terrible. It can still hit stuff without outwedging it though.

Overall my main focus here was making something cool though, and to get a hinged wedge I'd have to spend less weight on visuals to put into the wedge

I also made an update to this thing from a while back. It was very well received at the time but I felt that the flipper in particular could have been improved. I went with a longer panel + some edge pieces that IMO integrate it into the bot much better and make for a much more cohesive package. I also changed the colour of the flipper from the somewhat jarring bright green of the old one to a dark blue, which makes for a nice compliment to the light blue and black bits that make up the rest of the bot.

New one. This actually started as a vert but at some point I decided it would work better as a hammer, so that's what I did in the end. 1 frenzy hammer powered by a medium VDMA so should hit decently. I need to add a couple more batts, which I have spare weight for, but I can't be bothered taking this thing apart right now. There's been some discussion about the plough on the front in the discord, and I was considering skinning it as I built the thing, but that will depend on how hellish the mesh for it is. Some people said it looks good as-is though so swings and roundabouts innit.

TY boss. Plow seems pretty divisive in terms of whether people like it or not. I may just leave it as-is since I don't really have a strong opinion on it either way
