The six wheeler looks really impressive both in speed and control plus the lifter, I do like that.

Well, I had a spare NanoTwo kit after upgrading Skutter's drive to 3 cell, so I've clustered the 6 wheeler (Chug) with the little 8g thing (Scrat). I've called the cluster The Hangover (Pt I and Pt II respectively). This allows me a 4th member on my Flea team:

It's a fairly basic grabber thing, but is pretty effective assuming I don't drive it out all the time. Still working on a name.

EDIT: Called it Smash N Grab.. Not my best effort, but then neither is the robot so I guess they they fit each other nicely :P

Well considering Smash n Grab was basically useless, I've rebuilt it as an undercutter:

It's built out of the parts of the old Why Wait?, hence the name. It had to use Nano drive units to get it in weight, so is near uncontrollable, but hey it's hilarious and now means I have a proper Flea spinner

Finally got round to rebuilding Moon into what it was meant to be; a mini Why Wait.

It works reasonably well, but struggles to get bite atm.. though when it does it is pretty impressive (It's the old spinner mech from Why Wait so is a little overkill in a flea). Also hopint to get some more armour fitted over the top before the weekend.
