Here's a close up picture of team 401's drive train this year...we opted to go with a suspension type system complete with compression springs, (not shown). The hole in the center of the polycarb is the pivot point, not a horrible mistake in drilling that plagues some teams.

We are all of 13 inches high and 130 pounds this year. If you go to the gallery, you can see us holding up a box. What you probably can't see is another set of arms directly underneath them that we use for orienting the boxes so that we can pick them up. We're faster than we were last year, somewhere around 11 fps, haven't really timed it running around. Can't wait to see how it does at Richmond and Nats.

Eric should have at least posted a link to this year's robot's picture.

http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/pi...&quiet=verbose

As you can see, the drive train is thoroughly protected. Besides, at half-inch thick, lexan is bulletproof. So at 3/8" i'd hope it'd be strong enough to take a hit from another robot. Another bit of info...two years ago we made our robot completely out of polycarb. That's right people, no structural metal at all. Here's a link.
