That appears to be a van door motor We where not given one this year. Previous year van doors are not legal.

<R52> Items specifically PROHIBITED from use on the ROBOT include:
A. Electric motors and/or servos different from, or in addition to, those in the Kit Of Parts, with
the exception of those specifically permitted by Rule <R51>.
B. Electric solenoid actuators (note: electric solenoid actuators are NOT the same as
pneumatic solenoid valves the latter are permitted, the former are not).
Van door motor was not in the kit and is thus prohibited.

Very nice guys. I'm very impressed. Especially for a team one year removed from losing their founding mentor.

I especially like your chassis. Is that powder coated aluminum? The big question at this point is if you are going to finish. What you've got looks great though.

P.S. BUMPERS!

(Sorry, no one has said anything about bumpers in this thread yet. That's unacceptable.) :p

Yes, it is powder coated aluminum. All the thanks to GENERAC. I don't know why they choose white this year. Two years ago GENERAC went way out of their way to powder coat our robot our school colors blue and yellow. At least these colors made sense for our robot. Is the white for camouflage?

And if you think this is a little late to build a robot, ask the juniors and seniors what happened our rookie year.

I'm actually working on that right now :D

And we're doing white so it looks like a moon rover!
