So in theory, it seems like an elevator/cascade lift would work best this season b/c of their compactness, linearity, and (theoretical) efficiency. But, as many people have said, they are really tough to effectively implement with Vex because the linear slides have a lot of friction. We know it's possible to make an effective lift. Off the top of my head there's 1103 from Round Up and 99371A from ITZ. Does anyone know how these teams (and others with good lifts) made their elevator/cascade lifts so effective?
It's probably about minimizing friction, but how?
