Excellent job guys! I am glad to see the regional went well after hearing what happened last year.

Great robot, and we will see you in St. Louis! :D

Great looking robot. Fairly simple and effective.

It's also impressive how stable you guys appear to be despite the elevator height combined with the rapid direction changes from your swerve drive.

Congrats on the win!

Thanks, it really was much better than last year.
(especially for us - we had a great robot last year, but lost mainly due to communication problems)
This year - no such problems, only "regular" problems in the robot itself that we were able to solve.

I didn't realize how close that minibot race was untill I saw the game's video a day later.
It really was a cool finish, and probably the regional's best moment, slightly above our alliance's regional high score.

Really? I thought the best game was when we played against you. 63-62 - that was intense.

It was a great match, but not the best result for us.
Still an amazing game that could have ended both ways.
And eventually it turned out to be a good result even for us, since it kept you in 2nd place at the end of qualifying.
