Hellfire <3. I enjoyed writing that bot's matches so much&#33;

You really should enter CBC if you can manage it. It'd be a serious shame not to have your gorgeous and creative designs there.

Holy crap, that's badass. I love the idea of it being able to swap between horizontal and vertical depending entirely on which side it's sitting on.

Now that's a crazy but fantastic design, it looks very dangerous with that weapon&#33;

holy shit how do i even fight that :v: amazing job.

the one thing I would suggest is removing the point of torque (you don't have wedges and your top speed is slow, so it's not going to give you much of an advantage), and putting it into weapon. a 12 power weapon is a tad under-powered if you dont have a backup wedge - 13 would serve you better (and your armor can easily take it)

The final robot to be revealed for Cherry Bomb is this behemoth. MechaVertZilla is a walking robot with a 1m long vertical spinning bar. The walking mechanism uses rams powered by electromagnets to provide the same action as pneumatic rams but without the limited gas supply. Each ram has an electromagnet at each end of the cylinder and a magnet on the end of the moving shaft. Software swaps the power supply between each magnet to pull/push the shaft and times the firing between each leg and feet. Two camshafts on each side provide a physical way of timing the movement of the legs. Small hinged scoops at the front protect the legs from undercutters.

Speed: 4 / Weapon: 15 / Armour: 9 / Traction: 2 / Torque: 1

But wait, there's more. Taku is a minibot that will be joining MechaVertZilla for Cherry Bomb. Taku is a 4WD chassis-hinged wedge that is meant to get underneath robots and beach them to allow MVZ to come in and attack. It is a clone of Killjoy's chassis but with the crusher removed.

Speed: 7 / Weapon: 0 / Armour: 1 / Traction: 2 / Torque: 2

That looks fantastic. Taku is a neat idea but idk how well it will work.
