WWRA2 entry. Far from groundbreaking but I wanted to do something I knew would be relatively effective considering it's a team tournament, and everyone on my team seemed to be clamouring for me to do one of the flippers. Had planned to do a clamp but between that and the new format that I'm fairly sure will mean that the less competitive bot types will fall out of the tournament pretty quickly I decided to go back to my roots and do the front hinge.

Mostly my basic front hinge fundamentals. 2WD TWMR2s (I originally dabbled with 4WD but I just couldn't get a setup that looked good for this particular design) and 2 VDMA front hinges. This thing should be pretty tanky because it's got steel basically everywhere, and the wedge and KO ability seem really strong from testing. I'm sure the lack of drive will lose it a few fights but hopefully nothing too bad.

Relatively basic hammer. Might show up in PWT at some point because it's got 4WD (2 TWMR2s, 2 TWMRs) and should have a decent wedge hopefully. Front will hopefully be very tanky since it's 2 60x100 steel panels. 1 large slow VDMA for the hammer, which is only 30kg so won't be hugely damaging. May swap it to an axe head for more damage output

Not built a vert in a while so here's one. 4WD (2 TWMR2s, 2 TWMRs) 72V Etek, Heavily armoured too and can self right with the weapon (also somewhat invertible)

Not really a 'proper' showcase but I wanted to **** around with the new hworf AP so I updated this old thing by giving it a 72V motor, a nicer wedge and a few bits of cleaning up. It's got some rough edges because it's an old bot but this was mostly just to play around with and see how the hworfs fare

Also damn. TIL it's over 2 years since the last update to this bot. Time flies eh.

Vert thing. There's more I wanted to do with the concept tbh, but I had a surprising amount of weight issues given it's only a 2WD vert. It does have a 72v 4 mag and all-steel front end though so it'll be relatively tanky I hope

 


Edit:
Based on feedback from Discord I've also done another version with a shortened tail. Also has the added benefit of improving self righting. Cleaned up the supports on this one too which I may well transfer over to the original because I think they look much nicer. Still like the original and will be keeping hold of it, but this will likely be the version you see in tournaments because it can actually self right somewhat reliably.

I always love front wheeled 2WD driven robots.  The tube-y chassis is also a great thing.
I could make another LvD.  That would be cool.

Update to Sigil to give it 4WD. Weight to do so gained by swapping the main drive motors from TWMR2s to NPC fasts, swapping a few bits from Steel to Ti (main wedge is still all steel) and swapping the weapon motor from 72V to 48V. Still have the old ones but this will likely be the version seen in comps.

Looks more balanced aesthetically now I think. I like the upgrade, I wasn't too keen on the original version but I do really like this version.
also lol at most toxic guy around calling others out on this sh**

Weird drum thing for MMNB. Wasn't exactly overflowing with ideas but wanted to get something built. I had a vague shape in my mind which this somewhat matches, though I'd have liked for the bot to be a bit less tall overall. I'd originally planned to have it fully symmetrical and invertible, but that didn't work out so I added a beefy front wedge in a similar vein to old bots like Steel Raptor and managed to cram in a srimech. I'm not 100% on it overall but I think I at least managed to execute the concept decently.

mad props for making that wack chassis shape work out. If the overall stance was dropped down so that the entire bot was flush with the bottom panel it would look a lot better imo.
Stuff I didn't suck at (from oldest to newest)

You're probably right, but there's no way to drop the height while retaining the geometry of the sides with the kinda pyramidal-ish shape to them, which was sorta the whole motivation behind the bot, unfortunately.

In other news, I built another one. Bit more conventional but probably better as a result. Built like an absolute tank with all steel everywhere on the front and 4WD TWMR2s so nice and nippy. Should hopefully be an HS's worst nightmare.

Hammer that definitely didn't start out as a vert. Been wanting to do something with the colour scheme of the Essex Lotus F1 livery for a while and this is it. Will likely do a bit of panel skinning to get some more of the silver and red on there.

 


Here's a pic of the livery I based it on for context
