Do you think you could post a link to the actual video where you got DQ'ed?
Here, I believe this is the match where we actually received a DQ.

Re: 4886A Sack Attack Progress (VT Design)

Have you guys fixed that leg wheel bug yet? We made an intake today (not done yet though) and our legs sometimes lift up the sacks above them. Would intake rollers work instead?

We haven't we've been busy putting together our parts list for this year. The wheel leg bug can be easily fixed, just have a small bar or a small strip of lexan so the sacks fall down when they get stuck. But when intaking on a table with no angle on it, like how our test was, it should work. I'm skeptical about the rollers, the wheel legs grab the sacks much easier.

You'll need something to keep it down, as I tested my design today and the legs brought them up sometimes. We might use extra axles and put them in between the leg wheels.

If you can have an 8-bar, why not have a 10-bar?

are you saying that you pushed every single robot with a 1.5 ratio? o.0
i find that pretty hard to believe due to the Cof of the Worlds fields
Torque is not the largest factor in pushing, you know. Our 4-motor 1:1 drive pushed most other robots, not because of extreme torque, but because the robot weighed 25lbs.

Re: 4886A Sack Attack Progress (VT Design)

unless you have wheel slippage (ive seen NO robot do that)
i dont see how pushing 25lbs (you) AND against your opponent (avg 16lbs) helps you get an advantage?
it definitely helps resist being pushed though

Why not have a 12-bar? Or a 14-bar? How about a 50-bar?
