Well yes, that does seem to solve the issue of invertability.

However at this point I'm having a hard time seeing those thwack teeth ever coming into play. The only time they'd see any piratical use would be if the ring was disabled. Of course since you'd then be rotating the bot for thwacking motion, the teeth on the ring still have much longer reach so they'd be what hits your opponent, not the thwack teeth. And since they're attached to a dead ring and not rigidly to your chassis, they wouldn't hit with quite the same amount of impact.

It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

Time for a 4-bar lifter, here is Shades of Grey:

hinged side skirts, can't self-right half of the time, invertible, rounded back end (it can't be seen in that pic tho, i guess i could put up a pick of the back if that's really needed), so yeah, first 4 bar

1) Where's the name from? :P I can't put my finger on it, but...

2) For a 4-bar, I think you would want to extend the rear of the lifter to the back pretty much. Because as it is, it actually won't self-right at all.

3) I think you'd want to extend the lip of the lifter out a bit more. Bots can easily drive off of that before you are able to lift them up.

Not bad. But the name though, don't try to taint ARC with that Twilight fanfiction garbage. :v:

if you remember my Crazy Bots team, i have a front hinged flipper named WarWolf as a MW in it, well he took some steroids, and went from this:

to that:

now with 3 hinged wedges at the front, and a new anti-spinner scoop at the back, the wolf is ready to hunt some more preys
