Noah, stop standing on the lad's robots. It makes them cooler but it generates an odor.

Starting my preparations for Mech Madness 2. Will be entering a mixture of new builds, bots I built a while ago but haven't entered into a tournament yet, and veterans. Here's one of the new builds. Based somewhat on the chassis of my Deathmatch 2 entry but with major modifications which render it looking very little like it, this is Toreador. Beta burst for the flipper and 4 TWMR drives.

It certainly adds some character to a bot. Thanks!

This wasn't actually intended as a sequel to the buffalo-themed front hinge I did a while back, but I can definitely see the resemblance.

I can certainly try and make room for it in my planned OW3 lineup too if you'd like to see it!

Here's one of my 2 entries to Middleweight Mixup 2 (The other being that middleweight version of Sabre from a while back). I made 2 configs for it but I've decided to only enter the flipper version in the end. Drive is 2 TWMRs for fairly average speed for an MW, while the flipper is powered by 2 small VDMAs which should provide a good bit of power. Would have liked to have had another bar connecting the arms of the flipper together closer to the tip, but it would have clipped with the triangular structure on top which holds one of the bot's batteries and therefore cannot be removed. The drum config uses a perm  80 for the weapon power but changes too much to really be a modular config as well as the drum being somewhat disproportionate to the rest of the bot, so I'm a fair bit less happy with that one. Not expecting either of my bots to do too much of anything competitively as they aren't shell spinners or overheads, but hopefully they'll at least look cool and do some good flips as they get ripped apart.

 


Also while I'm at it, might as well showcase my full Mech Madness 2 lineup. Most of them have been seen before. Azimuth has been upped to 4WD since MM1, and Captain Pugwash is a 6mag powered wild thing style spinner that I'm not really all that pleased with compared to the rest of my lineup

I like Toreador best of all of those. Craaig was right, eyes really give character to a bot

Here's a vert design I've wanted to do for a bit now. Had been interested in doing a plough setup like this since I saw someone make a DSL-S bot with a similar setup fairly recently, and thought it looked interesting so I figured I'd try to transplant that design to an IRL bot. Weapon motor is a perm 132 and drive is 2 NPC regulars. Ploughs are mediums while everything else is Alu as weight was a big issue here. Backlash disc probably gets 0 bite but it looks pretty decent and is fairly light so that's what I went with. No srimech either and I hightly doubt it can aftershock its way back onto it's wheels but I guess we'll see.

Unique was the goal for the most part so I'm glad I at least somewhat accomplished it

Here's a little cruiserweight vert thingy. Dual perm 80s for the discs, TWMRs for the drive so it's not the fastest bot in the world. Steel front wedge, everything else Alu. Somewhat based off the featherweight "Argh!" from Robot Wars Extreme 2 but I made pretty extensive changes to the design. May go to a single flywheel at some point just because I think it might look better, but I'm interested to hear what you guys think on that front.

Here it is with a single disc for comparison's sake. Obviously less powerful but IMO better looking. Also allowed me to add some wedgelets and make some parts look cleaner

I really like Thyco, but in my opinion the dual discs look better.

Still ****ing about with this thing. Made an HW version with a perm 132 instead of an 80 and 4 wheel drive (2 TWMRS and 2 astros so it's hardly greased lighting but it's faster than the CW despite being 200KG heavier. Disc is a mini minion and it also has a srimech now. 2 black batts for power. Internals are ridiculously tight but I managed to get it all to fit eventually ( ;))

That disc looks great, amazing how just a black disc can make a Minion disc look so different! Love the backpack thing as well.

TY man! The backpack thing sorta arose out of necessity with how much the perm stuck out but I think it came out looking alright. Glad you like it too!
