I knew you were some aggressive drivers from your amazing job in Waterloo with us and 188. But seriously, you must of hit them hard

The same thing happened to us in Philly. We have not yet reviewed our videos to determine how it could have happened.

Regards,

Re: pic: Bent IFI Wheel

We had tons of problems with our wheels in philly.

The tread came off twice, it needed to be riveted down. We lost one wheel beyond repair, and by the end of the day, one of the two IFI wheels were just like that.

Re: pic: Bent IFI Wheel

I think one of the problems was that IFI designed these wheels before the game was put out. They may have had some hints that traction would be needed, but they probably didn't expect THIS kind of phsyical gameplay. At SVR, the spokes on 1280's custom wheels were completely sheared off in the second Finals match. If gameplay was that rough on their wheels (which appeared pretty sturdy), I can imagine it could do some pretty bad things to the IFI wheels.

Re: pic: Bent IFI Wheel

Seems odd. 1293 used them as the center wheels on our 6WD setup (with Skyways for the outside), and we never had a problem with them all through Palmetto. (Look at the videos on SOAP, and you'll see we weren't exactly being gentle with Chomp, either.)

We did have issues at times with popping chains on the gearbox-IFI-wheel route, but I don't have the evidence needed to pin that on any one thing. Besides, we remained mobile for all nine matches.

Re: pic: Bent IFI Wheel

Yeah... 1341 used 6 of those as well, and we had not a single problem with them at UCF. Not a dent, not a removed rivet. We weren't a full-time defense bot, but it did play a big part in my team's strategy after we shot off the initial 9 balls we were carrying.

Re: pic: Bent IFI Wheel

We, 1138, also used 6 of those. The only thing we noticed about them after BAE was pretty big dent in the front of the wheel from playing defense, and then at LA, we had stripped some screws, broke some rivets, and i think quite a few more dents after LA, but nothing major.

We have a lot of work at ATL retreading all and fixing broken screws in 4 of the 6 wheels. These wheels are pretty sturdy though from what we've seen, and we're a hard-hitting defensive robot.

Re: pic: Bent IFI Wheel

it seems whenever i see a set of ifi's and a pair of andymark transmitions together the ifi wheels disintegrate. as soon as we put a little load on our drive-train the wheels were in pieced the sprockets lost concentricity. they all started wobbling and the ball bearings EXPLODED!!! the whole bolt-together plate thing just doesn't stand up to much force.

We have the AM 2 speeds with the IFI Wheels, and they still held up. For the sprockets, we had to put a bearing in the center of the sprocket to keep it concentric though.

You're right though about the plates, they could be thicker, but for their weight, they're pretty nice.

Re: pic: Bent IFI Wheel

We are replacing our rear pneumatic wheels with a pair of 2 inch wide 8inch IFI's. I doubt we'll get any damage like that! I sure hope not!
