you are wasting so much weight with this garbage extender work and sloppy chassis. you're still getting outweaponed by fury even with the 1wd.

shrink your chassis around your components and get those weapon motors on a snapper. maybe put a plow on it too. those static weapons at the front can't be very good at protection.

Chassis is not sloppy.  yes it is, you've got way too much empty space especially around the anchors
I have a WS in Special Forces 2 that uses a tiny chassis and snappers. cool, this one's still bad

Another WS on the way... no one cares

Those static weapons are actually really good. A popup got under this bot... tried to hit the underside... and broke BOTH razor assemblies on the static weapons of this WS. if youre dumb and not aiing them with popup.py, sure. most people aren't.

any more excuses? fix your sh**

You guys seriously need to stop getting so ass blasted. This is a showcase and you're acting immature. Badniks sassy butt hurtedness still cracks me up tho because I can picture him furiously typing this sh** up.

Like I said before red alert, the haters love you and don't wanna see you win. I've already seen bots here with better concepts than anything badnik has built and you're enthusiasm for stock makes me happy. You're gonna be an all time great one day, kid, I see the potential.

Weight and efficiency is very important in stock, especially in the lower weight classes. Whenever you build a bot, take a look at your setups and see if you can use less extenders and connectors and what not. You've already mostly grasped the concept of chassis management, this is the next step.

I'd like to see you revisit the HW poker/Insectoid bot. Take the advice Pwnator suggested and try and make it better. That build alone shows me you can improve.

You got it. Honestly, there are 2 insectoid pokers already in 2.0.

You don't know me. You don't know what I mean by what I'm saying. They're not excuses. I mean everything I say, and they're not excuses.

Okay. The reason why I try different bot styles is because I see too many clones. I look through THE best bot concepts and I see- generic, generic, generic, generic. I just want to try something different.

Scrap Daddy, there are 2 pokers like Insectoid in 2.0. One has already beem built, and the other is being worked on. Those are the improvements you’re seeing.

Wandering spinners need a slightly large chassis in order to be stable or... they’ll havok. Reason why normal HS can be built super-thin? They have two wheels- enough stability for the bot. Because typical WS only have one wheel, stability is a challenge.

One wheeled WS can use snappers. Disk WS can’t because they’ll enter spikeball mode.

You’re absolutely right about the extanders- they do look crappy.

On the other hand, a disk WS can be built just like a normal HS with the concept of a tight chassis.

Another sheer sign of might in a WS...

Taking the old 6-mace HS, removing the pink in the black, changing the armor to plastic, and adding 9 maces instead of 6.

That chassis has no protection. Especially with that weapon setup. Maybe you could use only 2 extenders to attach, drop down to a nifty and add some casters or a plow? It should also be trivial to make it invertible with a snapper layout.
Better than GK since 2009.
I think SM is a pretty cool guy, eh builds unicycle-bots and doesn't afraid of anything

Minus 3 maces and extenders, yes. I can do that.

Reminds me of PIT X in my 1.0 Ai pack.
Don't know what it looks like? Here it is...

Nice to hear.
I don't know how, but I built a LW triple-snapper popup weighing in at 247.8 kg. 2 pinks and a nifty for power. Interesting fact- it's NOT at all like Scrabble. Scrabble actually has 2 razors n a DDT, not 2 snappers.

I'm surprised my stock builds are turning out so great (not to brag)

I spent 20 min. trying to stack a nifty in the control board. Even with hax mode, I couldn't stack it for some reason...then I made a bot later on that has 3 stacked supervolts, so... it's rather annoying.

another bot.
This may be THE best HS I built so far.
 

12 razors, drive and weapon motors are all redbirds, DSA, and even castor armor at the front and back!
394 kg.

What better way to take up extra weight left over than using Samurai Swords?
Final weight is 398 kg.
