Sorry guys I’m not sure how much the Leland wants me to reveal. Leland just asked me to post those pics and specs. He is on the plane right now haha I’m sure he will be happy to show and answer questions about it in person this week.
The gears are shifted using one double acting piston. He had to do some interesting stuff to make everything strong enough to handle all of the power from the 8 motors, and shift smoothly. I don’t have any good pics of the transmission or any videos at the moment. Sorry I am not of more help. Definitely go check it out at the pits.
One of the members on my old team was building a robot that had the exact same concept but he did not have enough time to get it perfected. Im sure you guys will do great at worlds. Cant wait to see you there.
