it would help us if you would always show internals, weights and armor when you post bots.

They look interesting, but since you're using CF you're probably just building for fun and not competitively so my advice probably wouldn't help much.

Not bad. I like your taste for spinner bots.

Well, in IF, the weight limit is different than DSL and Stock, so pay attention to that. Also, from the looks of it, you are building IRL in IF

thank you.

I still can't comment much about the ones without internal shots, but for the others, I feel a few minor tweaks could really improve their combat effectiveness. On at least the bottom two, you can get away with a weaker weapon motor in favor of more weapons. this will improve damage and survivability a lot. you don't necessarily need the beefiest motor in ironforge if your weapon lasts longer than your opponents'. 

In order to get more weapons on, I recommend a few things.
your chassis are pretty big and have a lot of wasted space that just adds weight for no real gain. you can rebuild the chassis smaller and add external armor panels instead which are lighter and stronger.
you have more batteries than you will likely need. On all three of these you can get away with 1 big battery and 1 small/med. Of course you can add more for personal preference but batteries aren't light.
I have no idea what you're going for with these weights. In ironforge, the LW/MW/HW weightclasses are 125/200/400kgs, half as much as stock. They don't show up in the weight listed in the bot lab, you have to just manually adhere to the rules unfortunately. I heavily recommend building as close as you can up to one of the three weights instead of something random like 318kg. Note that you can use up to 4 ballasts in any bot and it will not count against your weight limit (eg a HW bot with 4 ballsts can be 600kg legally)
You may want to beef up the drive on the heavier bots as well but it's your choice.

basically:
build to the weight limits (125/200/400kg), shrink chassis, add armor plates, add way more weapons.
they do have promise, i look forward to seeing what you do :)

That's pretty good. Try more weapons on your heavyweight.
