Here's another one. An MW Front hinge flipper called Caldera 3. 2X TWM3R2 Drive for drive for a sh**ton of speed and pushing power and 1X Storm front hinge burst for the flipper. Pretty damn effective. In fact, if I hadn't already submitted my application I'd probably enter it into Badnik's tournament. Pics below.

I think I might. Fits the theme of my other bot better, and is more interesting too (Rather than a pretty generic spinner with a mechavore disc). I'll PM it to you now.

those unpowered wheels are triggering me.

you should use a larger font for the bot name on that skin too.

Unpowered wheels are gone in the version that I submitted to Badnik's tournament. I'll likely fix the font at some point too, though there isn't that much room to make it too much bigger

Here's one that I'm pretty proud of. MW extenderbot with an angled spinner. I call it Somnambulist.  Drive is 2X TWM3R Drives and Weapon power is 1X TWM2R2. Armour is Plastic 1 (I had absolutely no weight to spare) and the plates are all aluminium. Also has just enough power to get through a fight because of stacked ant batts (Only thing that would fit in the chassis [I'm not using CF]) Pretty damn effective from my testing though. Pics below:

Made a flipper version of Somnambulist. Exact same as the spinner version but with a flipper powered by 2X VSmall VDMA R/P Bursts, 1 extra battery and two titanium wedges on the front to get under bots. Pics below.

Some further refinements to the flipper version of Somnambulist. The top armour and rear polycarb are now one piece and the burst motors have been shifted around a bit and attached differently so that I can have longer flippers and have wedge edges on the end of them (Rule of 7 prevented that in the previous version. Pretty much happy with it now. Pics below.

Quadruple post because nobody seems to give a sh** about what I'm posting. Been working on my entry for the next Redditbots (Which is for LWs). After a lot of experimenting I've come up with this. I call it Zanzibar (After the Halo 2 map  :laughing) Vertical bar spinner with all polycarb armour. Spinner is powered by a TWM3R and drive is 2 slimbodies. Chassis armour is Steel 1 (Best armour I could have and still be within weight) Pics below.

Front extender work looks really messy and the weapon motor has no protection, but it doesn't look that bad. Make the chassis wider so the wheels fit in the wheelguards
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

I agree about the front extender work. That's the result of me trying to get it to actually be stable (Kept tipping forward). I'll do some work on it. My hands are kinda tied with the weapon motor, as I have absolutely no weight to play with. I'll see what I can do though. The wheels are supposed to be internal though, those are just armour panels rather than wheel guards (They just happen to be made out of polycarb because of weight)

Some minor changes to the front extender work on Zanzibar. Hopefully looks a bit less messy now. Still no motor protection because of weight though.

could you use an axle support or circle alu extender instead of the multiextender? I think it would look pretty sleek if you used the black extenders from DSC's AI pack too

I tried to get a round Alu extender in there but it wouldn't fit. Tried with an axle extender too but same story there. I'm not using the coloured extenders because this is for Redditbots, though I may make a version with coloured parts just for keeping around.

I'm not really looking to do BFE at the moment. Maybe some time in the future but I'd rather get decent at building in the bot lab before I go messing around with BFE and Component Freedom and stuff like that

So next Redditbots season is LWs?  Guess I better get off my butt and fine tune a decent LW.

Been ill today so spent some time on RA2 designing bots. Here's one of them. Pretty much a heavyweight evolution of the Caldera 3 concept. Hence the name Supervolcano. 2X Storm bursts for the weapon, and 2X TWM3R2 Drive for drive (Less speed than Caldera) I've found this design to be pretty excellent at getting OOTAs, and the second burst helps a lot with that. Pics below.

Not bad overall, but seems a bit bland... make it look cooler.

Chassis can be less large too.

I agree with everything you've said. I've been at a loss on how to make it more interesting though. Any suggestions? This is actually after a reduction in chassis size too. but I agree it needs to be shorter.
