What happens when it's upside down, and then it gets tilted onto its side?

It skitters around comedically with the disc, from the looks of things. The disc support looks very thin for my liking, but if it's supposed to be bonkers and mad, then mission accomplished and all nearby towns assimilated as well.

[/quote]depends a bit on where the center of gravity would be, which I may look into, but it will either tilt back to being on its back or, like Nick says, drive on its disc

do you really find the support that thin? all I need is for a belt to run through it, the motor that powers it is down there where there's actually room for it

I have come up with a groundbreaking new axlebot design for LoRE's showbots tournament, not inspired on anything in particular. I'm expecting it to change the robotic landscape forever.

Thanks, I was particularly happy with this find because Rotom-Mow is the one Pokemon that came with big wheels and everything. I could essentially just copy him directly. Well, minus the green glow (and I tried messing around with green lights, lol, but that would color the whole bloody thing green and that's not what I wanted).

I shall post the stats I have in my mind for Jackelyn Cryderman here and await criticism&#33;

Speed: 5
Traction: 3
Torque: 2
Armor: 6
Weapon: 14

EDIT, I first typed "away criticism", but I meant "await criticism", I made a mistake&#33;

Why the extra torque point? Surely you aren't expecting to push things?

also i'm going to be rewording the oota zone ruling for vertical spinners so 14 will have a hard time OOTAing things

[/quote]

Because torque is more than just that, according to the rules your tournament refers to, "Torque:This stat determines linear acceleration". I find linear acceleration a tad too useful to just give it 1 point by default.

Fuck that&#33; xD It already went from

"[28-2-2015 22:46:38] Martijn: how strong is strong enough for a vertical spinner?:P
[28-2-2015 22:47:01] Badnik96: 13 is probably the lowest you could go for a VS to throw something OOTA"

when I asked about it on Skype some weeks ago, to a minimum of 14 when you posted the arena later on. Please do give a final number well before the deadline so I know what I have to aim for.

ah, just read it, fair enough actually, not a huge deviation to what it previously said, although now I'm really beginning to consider settling with 13 weapon power for less OOTA'ing and a better robot in general...

Speed: 5
Traction: 3
Torque: 2
Armor: 7
Weapon: 13
