1. Moar thrusters!

Easy enough, it's how most make robots faster. Add more thrusters to increase velocity, but be warned; any more than 15 thrusters (might be 25, check the the thruster's tooltip) will cause a drop-off.

2. Lightweight for beginners

Want to increase speed but don't have the CPU for thrusters? And you want it to be easy? You don't? Tough luck, I'm going to tell you how!
Simply use inner corners instead of regular blocks to cut on robot weight!

3. Lightweight for advanced players

If you're not using a connection point, replace it with corner blocks and slopes. This makes a bot more lightweight, and less connection points helps with triforcing.

4. Use the biggest thrusters where possible, (the weight to speed ratio is better)
5. put a rudder sticking out at the front of your bot

1. Add pics
2. For hovers: Use more hovers (thrusters help less if you don't have enough hovers)
