« on: August 19, 2014, 10:02:19 AM »
Old thread deleted due to ungodly amounts of cringe.

4 HPZ Chained VS, 16 Irons, 2 stacked Blacks, 4 HPZ Drive, DSA, 796kg.
The 140cm and red extenders are used for stabilisers because it'll tip over easily. Keep or remove?

I didn't know you even did Stock. Nice build, but is it invertible?
People always ask me what I would do for a Klondike bar, but I know what I should or could do for one.

screw them i like the extenders

i really dont get everyones fetish with neat extender work, like it only makes sense if it could obviously net you some sort of increased performance and in most cases when people complain about it, it wont


For once the mods did something right

You make a valid point, Kill. And the extenders are fun, I meant it. Certainly in this instance not much can be gained from lightening the extender setup, assuming, Kurt, you want to keep the width of the motors? That said, though, what weight is the bot on atm?

If you were to rebuild this I'd consider making that first extender that comes off the S-II just a 20cm. You would then have the HPZ's protected better from other HS and side hammers - they'd be both partially in the chassis and in the drive Z-Teks. While it's not ideal to have the motors exposed you don't have much choice, and having more than one motor in a similar place, with the wheel and plow about too, will mean more things are there to take hits. It's like the process of segmenting wedge extenders.

At the same time, though you wouldn't lose out in the reach department - the plow would still be the same distance in front of the HPZ, that wouldn't change.
