Make sure to kiss ur alliance partner in the middle of a match, it’ll distract the opposite alliance and u can snag some points
If you REALLY want to be a team’s main driver, join a VEX AI team! Because of the way it’s set up, nobody else will even ask for the main driver position.
VEX AI is the perfect platform for beginning teams and programmers. It’s simple to start. The platform is made for beginning teams because one of the robots has a 24” limit (bigger than the typical 18”) and the sensors make programming easier than ever before!
Always use robot c blocks with v5. Best software for it out there.
I get the feeling that this joke isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
Screw quarantine, meet with your team to start building and stay ahead of the competition
well you can, just stay 6ft apart
(slides c-channel with broomstick)
Wait but two motor drive is fine with correct gear ratios
Use the baseplate.
Make sure you use as many gear ratios as possible to make your robot more complicated.
Use only traction wheels.
Use the v4 claw.
I totally didn’t do this for my first comp.
Put all your c-channels, screws, motors, and tools together in one box to save space.
looks like my lego bin (which is taking a VERY long time to sort)
Hot glue is the best way to hold your robot together. Glue together bars, and glue big clumps on axles to act as shaft collars. It’s also a great lubricant for gears and sprockets. It also lubricates the inside of bearing flats so axles can spin better.
Use zipties for everything. Motor to chassis mount, no problem! Ziptie! Mounting your shafts, ziptie! Zipties are the best, screw elastics, use zipties instead.
Just a quick disclaimer, zipties are apparently a pretty good idea for attaching motors to the chassis
you should use a dr4b for change up. extra height is always better!
Please don’t actually do this.
No a QR8B:
Don’t use the search bar.
Build a robot with a bunch of weapons so you can disable all other robots and score some points by just using your bot as a pushbot. Insta-win everytime

someone actually built a janky robot with only zipties and barely any screws and made it to state finals
