If you could control caps and the parking spot you could win with any kind of alliance though…

The thing is, we sucked at our job. Our flipper was god awful and we could rarely stack on the poles. When we did, the opponent would just de-score them. Combine that with referees at worlds who decided to never enforce pinning, and we lost a lot of matches.

That’s obvious isn’t it?

I once tried to build a claw for our team. It ended very badly.

Seeing a “Freeze” option on the computer and clicking it, freezing the mouse and then plugging in an around 13-year old mouse for children without a scroller. Couldn’t be why it took so long to find this thread

Copy a VR vex program over to a speedbuild, and not putting wait commands. Lets just say the wheels were at 100% velocity and changing directions very fast, making that “oh that’s not good for the motors” sound.

Getting into pushing matches with 6 motor v5 bots with a Drivebase powered by 3 legacy motors geared 84:36

wait that would be like almost over 1000rpm on your drive lol. With three motors. Even with v5 that would end badly.

The way he listed his gear ratio implies that that the 12 tooth gear is the driving gear, making it relatively slow, but the context of the scenario suggests that the 84t gear was the driving gear making it very fast, as you said.

If you indeed meant the 84T was driving, did it even move?

Oh yea that makes a lot more sense. Dang that’s slow
