Another rear hinge. CW this time. Fair bit happier with this one than the last, which deviated pretty heavily from what I think is a good build style. This one is closer to my conventional style. TWMR2s for drive and a storm burst for the flipper. Frontal armour is all steel, everything else is Alu

This reminds me of Starfox, and I haven't even played any of those games.

Further developments. Switched up the burst setup to a medium VDMA and hinged it differently, which gets rid of some of that awkward storm burst clipping, makes the whole thing a lot cleaner IMO, and also makes the flipper a lot more effective. Also added some lil flair to the front in light blue, which I think looks pretty sweet, and also added wedge edges to the bottom of the front triangles using carbon fibre extenders so they run totally flush with the floor now. Really happy with both the looks and performance of this thing now.

Super boring since it's just a lower weight class version of one of my other bots, but here's a new version of Speed Freak (CW Speed Demon) for a tourney outside of GTM. TWMR2 drive and a perm 132 for the disc. Only 2 typhoons but they seemed fairly potent on the original Speed Freak, and the wedge and supports have as much armour as the HW version so it should be hella tanky. The big drawback will be that it has no srimech and probably can't self right with the disc either so I'm just gonna hope I don't get flipped.

I think it’s very nice looking, but I don’t like the white armor panels on the top that slope down to the sides, they make the robot look a little more messy. The weapon setup looks a little bit messy too, with the slight clipping, but nothing’s major, it looks great and I’m surprised you fit everything into a CW

Do you mean the wheelguards? They'd probably look better if the white of the chassis matched the white of the plates, but that seems to be impossible. I literally copied the texture map of the white plate to use as the white background for the chassis skin but it still doesn't match properly, I'm assuming due to different reflection maps.

Made some changes based on your feedback. Changed up the support setup a bit to try to lessen the clipping, and also to save weight. Also redid the wheelguards to try to get them a bit cleaner. Finally spent the weight saved from altering the supports on 2 more small typhoons, giving it a total of 4

That tiny weapon may make it difficult to inflict sufficient damage...

Those tiny weapons are called Typhoon teeth, They can do ungodly amounts of damage, he put the teeth on an extender/BFE'd them in to make them smaller, and when the vertical spinner gets under its opponents, it Gutrips, much similar to that of a popup

Must admit, for a guy that loves srimechs on verts...I'm surprised this doesn't have a srimech! That aside: this looks as great as the rest bud!

No weight or space innit. My srimechs on verts plea is mostly directed at people who try to build uber competitive stuff and then are surprised when it gets bullied by a flipper too. I've fully accepted the fact that this thing is probably gonna get dunked on when it faces a flipper
