first of all sorry it took so long for my reply, its been pretty busy....secondly Nats was great....and finally....to shed alittle light on yall who didn't make it and see the bots and team 86's SUPER can crusher....
it was a pneumatic cylinder with a medal....thing on the end....hooked up to a compressor....yea, so it sounds really basic and it was...but it was just to show the cool things pneumatics can do.....and have a little fun recycling....
maybe we'll have some cool footage....
