To make things easier for people who are new, let me tell you how to make the side attachment point face outward. This could save alot more weight and make your bot more destructive.
1. Use round extenders to save weight
2. Each little turn is 10 degrees and 36 turns will put you back where you extender previously was. So if you need to turn the extender 90 degrees then that is 9 little turns.
Here is a guide to make it easier.
10 degrees= 1 lt(Little Turn)
90 degrees= 9 lts
180 degrees= 18 lts
270 degrees(3/4)= 27 lts
360 degrees= 36 lts
