great i have the weapon system built tough as nails and now will have to displace 2 bearings before the screws that hold the disc to the hub sheer unlike hexxus that used screws as part of the structure of the hub. using a strobe and a tach to get a decent read i was getting just over 44 thousand rpm at the disc and it whistles loud as all hell. the only thing left is the drivetrain system and armor im still undecided as to how im going to go about making it strong enough to take hits from your bots and genes its going to require some good for-thought but its a major improvement so far of where my last robots have failed.

Yea it's way too fast I don't think even this single tooth will get a bite at that speed but it will mill someone up if they don't have metal armor. pics will be up this week ready for some critical comments

The gyro forces on that seem intense! unless of course the weapon is only a fraction the weight of the bot.. Rolling Eyes

It wont be able to steer at full throttle the disc weighs 7.9oz i wont need to go that fast on the disc to do damage.

comparison wise hexxus hit at 1400 foot pounds on a horozontal axis displacing most of its energy in a rotational vector from its point of impact, estimated with 3 pounds of mass and foam wheels i think it imparted about 600-800 foot pounds of energy in reality.

this one being a vert displacing almost all of its energy into its target will be making a real world 3500 foot pounds of energy, if it bites, otherwise it will be a mean mobile milling machine.
