I’m looking forward to starting a new VRC team this year. We just ordered a lot of parts such as the field, competition super kit, and Spin Up game elements. Would you be willing to share any good online resources or advice for a start-up team? We are just starting to get a feel for how the competitions work and some of the basic strategies for building the robot. (We are truly starting from scratch but are very ambitious.)
Thanks so much and have a great day.

New Team Guide To VRC
When I started out in robotics, there was no good guide on what mistakes I should avoid doing and what things are really useful. This should be a helpful resource to new teams to help them avoid many of the mistakes that new teams make and help give them a better understanding of how vex robotics works. I hope that you find at least some of this information useful in your first season of robotics. This guide was written for the 2020-2021 season “Tipping Point” but …
