take a look at our 2000 drive train and 2002 they are all basically the same. Plus.....how long do you think we have had to practice with this since the design was basically already done?

Why on earth would u not make any design changes? Especialy with the upgraded motors of this year.

I just dunno. I have some SERIOUS doubts that you guy were (insert word here) enough to build the same bot. Thats just not smart. I REALLY hope this is a prank. It seems very much so not in the spirit of first.

hrmm same wheels and everything, however I can't see this years drivetrain

Ohh and gotta love the air of cockiness prevelant in almost everyone of your posts

not that we plan to spoil your plans, but I see gracious proffesionalism leaning more towards being humble than the pomposity displayed :-)

Mayb I just read your posts wrong

Dan

It is the 2001 robot, with a little different painting at the end, and the sides are off. I bet the drivers got 6 weeks of practice as soon as the field was built.

Even if they did use the same design as past years, I wouldn't say its not within the spirit of FIRST. Just think of the rookie teams with a drive train the first year and second year... They are re-using their design, would you call that not within the spirit of FIRST?

I am pretty sure they got something better than this... If not, its still a really good robot.

As I'm sure most people already know, this is obvioulsy our 2001 bot not our 2003. We all got a little slap happy towards the ship date and we figured we would have a little fun seeing who remembered our 2001 bot. We look forward to seeing everyone at the competition at UCF and Huston!
