Here's a thing. No actual clue what it's meant to be really. Perm 132 for the weapon, dual TWMR2s for drive. Twin slow mags for the srimechs

Thanks guys!

Here's another one. Speed Demon is probably one of my most successful bots but I still have ideas how to improve it. This is the result of those ideas: Speed Demon V.

Compared to the previous version it's upgraded in just about every aspect. Drive has increased from dual TWMR2s to dual NPC fasts, the weapon motor can no longer fall off incredibly easily, angled armour pieces have been added around the weapon axle to deflect HS hits, and a quicker, more reliable srimech powered by a Vsmall VDMA has been added.

Weapon motor is a perm 132, drive is 2 NPC fasts, srimech is powered by a Vsmall VDMA. Weight is 799.7KG

Beautiful. I have no clue how you're able to pump out so much skill in such short time.

Looks a lot more bulky, less streamlined than before, but I like it!

Tfw speed demon has gotten slower as it's evolved.

But for real it looks much more durable than before and I love the supports you've done using the angle pieces and I love me some wedgelets. Sick work dude as per usual

Thanks man! I find that once you've built one bot you start to get into a rhythm and can make a fair few bots in a short time.

Bulkier was sort of what I was going for with this version. HSes have been the bane of Speed Demon for basically its entire existence, so I decided I wanted to make a beefed up version that could deal with them better.

This version is a decent bit faster than version IV was due to using NPC fasts rather than TWMR2s. Also as I mentioned last time this came up, the speed of the initial versions was too much of a hindrance for me to stick with it, and the name "Speed Demon" primarily came from the Martini Racing livery that the bot uses for its skin, rather than the actual speed of the bot

Did some more work on Speed Demon V as I wasn't happy with how (un)clean the previous version was. The whole top section has had a pretty big redesign which, IMO makes it look both cleaner, and makes it more effective in combat. I removed that annoying lip that there was next to the angle pieces on the disc supports and also beefed them up so that they're even more resilient to HSes now. I also altered the angle of the supports and made the srimech into a full panel rather than a weird U-shaped extender thing, which also goes some way to hiding the somewhat sticky-out srimech burst a bit better too. IMO the whole thing looks a lot cleaner now, but I'm interested to hear what you guys think.

I like the new version better, because visually, I think this version looks more robust with the covered weapon motor and the structure of the support

Should be more robust in practice too, though that remains to be properly seen.

I might be the only one who prefers the original. I still really like that skin and giving it an option to selfright is very good

Here's a new thing that ended up being an SHW. Weird twin angled drum thing. Small drums because anything larger would clip with each other where they converge in the middle. Drive is 4 TWM3s which would be fine if this was an HW as planned but since it's an SHW it's not the quickest bot in the world. Drum motors are perm 132s so at least they have some power to them, and that red bit in the middle is a srimech powered by a medium VDMA.

Cheers guys!

I've since made the drums a bit bigger which I think looks a fair bit more proportionate. The inner drums still have to use small beaters because they'd collide otherwise but other than that I think it looks better
