Lego BattleBot - Wedgetarian v1.0
An extremely durable wedge BattleBot that can take a hit and get the dirty work done.
About this creation


The underside of the wedge, consisting of 1x12 technic bricks that are pinned together in numerous places. I ran out of 1x12 bricks, so that's why the right side is unfinished. It is finished I guess, just not as strong and sturdy as the other side.



The gear reduction om the drive motors is 1:1. Some will say it's unnecessary, but with this robot taking massive hits and repetedly running into things, it helps prevent direct stress and wear on the motor since the gears take a lot of the abuse.



This shows how the wedge supports are double pinned and securly snapped into place on both sides. That wedge isn't going anywhere!



I guess you could call these casters. They help prevent the bot "pop up" when it goes from a stationary position into forward motion. Again, might be uneccessary, but it helps the wedge stay on the ground at all times. These casters are double pinned into more technic bricks that hold the back end together.



This shows the position of the receiver and the slot for the Lithium Polymer (LiPo) battery. No space goes to waste, and the chassis is compact to make it as strong as possible.



The back end of the bot that was mentioned earlier. A series of long technic bricks that are pinned and double-pinned together serve for a durable back end. As you can see, there are many blue double-pins that go through a series of bricks.



The underside of the bot with plenty of long baseplates to help mount all of the technic bricks in place. The motors are NOT directly mounted to any of these baseplates, just in case one were to fall off, the motor would fall off as well. More bricks and plates are under this series of plates.



The other connection point of the wedge. These bricks are mounted to the baseplates mentioned above, and double pinned together. There are four total connection points that mount the wedge to the chassis.
