Killer-Wolf given 1mm polycarb to replace the top and sides, shedding 2grams and gets rid of that cheese grater look.

Bunny-Ears has had to have it’s motors repositioned as the bot was lacking enough ground clearance to move freely.

Added side wedges to help with avoiding getting stuck on it’s sides.

And on a side note Bunny-Ears had it's first weapon and drive test and... the link for the flipper snapped.

After some issues and little bit of stress. She is ready, Bunny-Ears is now fully working and heres a video being tested by Jessica.

Small update got new wheels from Alex. Sadly only Bunny-Ears can use them, as it puts Killer-Wolf over weight using them. But at least both bots have a spare pair of wheels each.

So remember when I said they're ready guess there is some little tweaks that had to be done. So we had a test fight between Killer-Wolf and Bunny-Ears. Both bots were running great but the bolts being used in the flipper's hinge wasn't long enough and needed a bigger thread so I got some new screws for the job.

Post AWS 52:

So how did the 1.5 versions of Killer-Wolf and Bunny-Ears fair? Well I would say the upgrades are a success, the robots run very well and was more competitive sadly the luck of the draw played a big factor in the win and lose of the bots. And maybe some bad driving at times.

Bunny-Ears is fine.

Where as Killer-Wolf took a bit of damage.

Just a little unbending of the side panel (already done btw) and get a new servo horn.

Welp looks like I'll be building a Killer-Wolf 2.0. My bad build quality is starting to show and needs rectifying another issue, the structure is still easily wreaked by spinners. So the plan for the next upgrade is... 3D printed chassis.

I've been working on a CAD for Killer-Wolf 2.0 for a while now.

I posted a earlier version of this CAD on here before but this is its current form. Shorter, less blocky, less waisted space.

Just some fun and practice with CAD through designing antweight replicas of other combat robots in heavier weight classes. Improving my troubleshooting and testing my ability to replicate the look but also make it function trying to make it AWS legal.

Killer-Wolf 2.0 CAD is nearly done. Also early look at another flipper concept.

Oh what luck, my go to printer on 3D hub is no longer on there. This will make things more of a challenge to get KW 2.0 printed.

Not sure what I'm going to do, should I pay 20-30 pounds on 3D hub? or save up to get a printer that prints ABS?

Saving up for a printer would be a good idea. They are a much better investment in the long term and allow you to try things out as well. Well worth saving. :)
