The reprinted chassis of Killer-Wolf 2 has arrived and can report I've managed to save 15 grams in weight.

That's a lot to save and it is looking rather stylish.
I also like the the 6 wheel drive it has weight saving built in by the look of it and should be interesting to fight.

Thanks Peter, your advice on the motor mounts helped with the weight saving.

HB (6 wheeled bot) is going to be a interesting experiment, it's going to be the most compact and shortest robot I've built. The height only being 2.2cm.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand I just realised a issue with HB. I don't have enough space for the RX and ESC.

Soooo I could remove the weapon and make it weaponless. But I can adjust the design to make it all fit.

The new Killer Wolf is looking really good, a big upgrade on the current version, and the 6 wheeler should be really cool too, looks nice in the cad.

Thanks George.

And on that note about HB, spent the night doing lots of work on redesigning the gear housings, making the wheels and tires in CAD.

As for Killer-Wolf 2 I just need to rewire the arming switch as the wires came loose, add acetate to the flipper and add the decals.

Scale model of HB, yes it's that small. (AA battery for scale).

And Killer-Wolf with Acetate added, really need to get clear double side tape. (AA battery for scale).

Widen HB to as far as I can with just enough space for side armour.
