In case you were curious, I ran through my database and that 105pts from Green Egg and (Canned) Ham is in fact a world record.
One question, 2 motors does not seem like enough to to hang, do you transmission your drive motors? It looks as though your wheels are spinning as you climb suggesting you don’t disconnect the wheels for the hang, does that have any issues driving into the wall at the beginning of the hang if you do transmission your drive?
That shot of us going under the bar with 3 buckies is old and since than we have changed the robot so the problem you described no longer exists
Thanks we will do our best to represent New England well! Wow…I knew that it was a high score for our region but i didn’t realize that it was the highest in the world…that’s really cool! Yup you guessed right, we shift all 6 drive motors to a winch that assists the lift in hanging. We don’t stall into the wall because we use the lift to get the robot off the ground just enough so that the wheels don’t stall on the wall.
Wow. What an interesting tournament it was for us. We started the tournament going 1-5 and ended the tournament as math division finalists and Teamwork award winners. First off, I want to thank team 44 for picking us. I’m sorry that we couldn’t bring a world championship home to New England. You guys truly have an amazing robot and it was a pleasure to work together, not only at worlds, but throughout the entire season. I also want to thank team 2158M for being great alliance partners. You guys also had an amazing robot. To the math division champions 8000A, 2587z and 2941a: You guys had a great strategy, that when executed, made it impossible for your opponents to win. I thought for sure you guys would go all the way.
On a more personal note this was my last year of HS VEX and I’m very grateful for all that VEX has done for me over the years… And maybe just maybe I’ll be back next year on a VEXU team.
