Building a Ripsaw would work.

Opposing robots won't be an issue either.

i actually built one of those last summer, if you get the elastics tensioned properly it's great (it got right over the round up rings i was playing with)

Pneumatic suspension that could lower the bot to fit under the bridge, sounds awesome

Unlike gateway, I did not see a rule saying we can't go over the bridge.

Re: 2012-2013 Drive Trains

I didnt mean in a form of raising and lowering the robot that would create complex messes of stuff you dont want to deal with. What I was saying was WHAT IF you used a piston with a sprocket on the end of it to tension chains/treads have it always charged so it adapts to the treads slacking and tightening.

Just a thought

yeah but it wouldn't be that complex if you did it right (i may make a cad model of a chassis that can lower its self) and that idea was on the FRC "Next Year" list (if we arn't forced to use belts haha)
