What is the most stupid thing you have done in vex (I am not being rude or mean, no flag plz)

I know there are topics like this, but they are locked or 6 years old. For a while we were using a 1:5 ratio this season, so we couldn’t pick up the biggest goal. We also didn’t use bearing for a bit. What are some things you have done?

I hate how we built this first prototype arm


I have seen this image in so many places on this forum. It am scared of no man, but this thing, it scares me.

Is it not similar to this? What’s the biggest brain fart you have had in vex - #69 by UvuvwevweOnyetenye
I feel it is too similar to start a new thread


No, that is what have you forgotten to do. This is, what did you purposely do, but was really dumb.

I see. Well, using sprockets as gears it is (we didnt know 12T gears existed so did it for a torque-ier lift)

Do you have a picture? Did you just stick two sprockets together as if they were regular gears?

yes essentially. I dont have a picture as this was in September and we’ve done about 6 rebuilds since. We didn’t turn up to a competition with it (we swapped it out the night before)


take the same thing apart over and over again thinking I got the spacing wrong when it was right every single time
figured it out on like the 27th try


Didn’t start the robot til 2 weeks before our first competition.

Starting a brand new thread when a perfectly good one already exists.

Shall we ask DRow to merge them?

I am sorry, I did not see this when I utilized the search bar.

Put something together wrong, take it apart, then absent-mindedly put it back together wrong.
