you still don't need those 2 big batteries, use the 1 long black one, make the chassis height lower, and maybe move the drive motors further apart and use the extra weight for some cool wheelguards. Lookin good tho!

Chassis is as low as it can go and still fit a Perm-132. Toyed with the idea of external wheelguards but it looked a bit clunky when I tried it. I'll reduce the number of batteries further though, I'm just paranoid about the srimech using up tons of power (I know that spin motors use basically no power)

Edited Tommib III to make some of the changes you guys suggested. I present to you TOMMIB IV!



Tried to make all of the changes you guys suggested. Skirt wedge is gone in favour of a steel armour plate "spinner killer" wedge. Chassis has been shrunk slightly and some batteries removed (Had to use smaller wheels though and the motors seem to be clipping through the rear of the bot slightly because of this though. Also the srimech is slightly janky now)

Only change I didn't make was changing the stock angle connectors on the spinner supports for DSL angle pieces. My extender skills are terrible, and it came out looking awful when I tried to do it.

Internals of the bot can be seen here. This is with the steel top armour removed so that you can see the components better.

Welcome to the forums! Your bot looks great for a newbie. It looks like you're going for an IRL-style bot, in which case I would ditch the skirt wedge, as by most accounts they are disallowed on IRL bots under most circumstances. It also looks like you've gone way overboard on the batteries, you have 3 spin motors so you only need a single black battery.

Thanks for the feedback. Skirt wedge is there because I'm considering entering this into the next Redditbots if there is one, which has IRL rules but allows skirt wedges. In terms of batteries you're definitely right, but I have this terrible habit of just filling up any empty space in my bots with batteries until the hit the weight limit. Will most likely shrink the chassis a bit and reduce the number of batteries for the next incarnation.

Been lurking here for a while now and finally decided to do a post.

First bot is called Tommib III. It is a VS. Weapon is powered by an EEL Perm-132. Srimechs are powered by Slow Mag Snappers. Drive is 2X fast NPCs. Definitely a lot of room for improvement (Chassis is quite large) so I'm looking for feedback on how to improve.
