Yep, all those bots look great :)
I've built 2 new ants, well, they are both hugely overweight becuase the only battery I've got spare is a 4.8v 1300mah NiMh :P Anyway, here they are:

Deviant

Weight: 226g
Drive: 2x modded Park HPXF's
Weapon: Flipper made from 1.5mm polycarbonate
Armour: 1.5mm polycarbonate
Chassis: 1.5mm polycarbonate
Battery: 4.8v 1300mah NiMh
Notes: covered in black tape, it looked a bit messy so it has now been dismantled to make:

Deviant v2

Weight: 212g
Drive: 2x modded Park HPXF's driving lego tracks
Weapon: lifting scoop made from red art card :P
Armour: none
Chassis: 1mm artcard strengthened with 1.5mm polycarbonate
Battery: 4.8v 1300mah NiMh
Notes: I've wanted to build a tracked bot for ages, and I've finally built one :) The only problem is I had to dismantle my lego General Mayhem to get the tracks :( I know what your're all thinking; what is a 13 year old doing making antweights from lego? I don't know myself but DaveW thinks there cool 8)

Forgot to put mixing on for the video. I am currently working on the disc mounting having some problems which shouldn't take too long to fix.

That is looking really smooth Andrew and easily as fast as most of the wheeled robots. Looking forward to going head to head with it.
