Eliminate empty space, especially on the third and seventh robots.

say away from those Double TWM for drive

they are a weapon motor so lack the torque to get fast enough acceleration for driving

try NPC drive motors on your heavier robots

The biggest batterys are usefull, but only for burst motors.
All spinner motors only need one ant to power them.

They are only good for beta bursts, use ants for everything else.

3 easy steps to get better instantly.

1.  Look at other people's showcases, such as [ads]123 showcase of AWESOME[/ads]
2.  Make a copy of DSL, then install NAR AI in the copy.
3.  Get kill in NAR AI.

Not as bad (: Initial tips I'd give would be to use only 1 ant battery per spin motor (bursts need more), so that last bot could be run with 3 ants. Also reduce chassis size when you can. Just quick tipssss.
 
EDIT: And on the LWs, don't use those drive motors. They're very weak, try Astroflights as a minimum. You don't need such big/heavy wheels remember, some of my newest LWs use Astros and Wide Ant wheels.

Few rules here, to kick things off.

1) Copal Drive Motors fail on just about anything, try not to use them.
2) You only need one ant to power ANY spin motor, but I find it useful to have one or two extra, but not more than that.
3) As a general rule, you want the smallest chassis you can get away with, because this eats up less weight because of armour, and give you more weight to use on other things such as weaponry and external armour.

Also, bots have to be kinda realistic in DSL.
So while you can get away with popup designs or having non moving parts intersecting each other, you couldn't have those spinning weapons going through the wheels like on your first and third bot.

Also, I know Nar posted this before, but you really do eed to read this
