Team 60 is scaring me...



WOW! THAT IS IMPRESSIVE!

You look great.

Ford-Kingman is going to be a real playing in 2002 that much is certain.

completely terrified...

I was completely terrified when I first say the pictures... And I still am, but just not as much anymore.

Through out the years of competing with them at California regionals, this 2002 robot of theirs are the most intimidating one by far.

I also heard that the pictures posted earlier were from a while ago, meaning they have as much driving practice as they will need.

At least right now I am little more prepared in planning strategy if teams are going against them... It's going to be tough, but not impossible.

GREAT JOB! This robot looks really really cool. No matter who win or who lose, this year is still going to be a great year!

Looking forward to see you at competition!

Is it me or does it look like the arm can spin the goals around the body?
That would be really cool. Frightening, but cool.

yeah, real scary:/

I suppose those window motors and the nuematic pistons are to push against the goal's top board and gain additional traction through their weight? Now that's something formidable....with the weight of two few hundred pound goals and four motors driving it, it'd be real tough to push that robot around.

That is a defensive feature of there bot. It spins the goals so you can't get near it to steal the goals without getting pounded.

Yep that's right. Theoretically we can spin at 30 rpms

Gracious Professionalism out the window.

Does anybody but me think that their robot fits more under the category of "attack bot" then..."ANYTHING ELSE". I wanted to make a bully this year but we weren't allowed to. Not that that is why i'm complaining, we have a great robot, but that aren't you all thinking the same thing "If they get up to speed my robot is in many, many pieces". Goodbye gracious professionalism.

I would call trying to take a goal away from them and geeting smashed 'driver error'...

Oh, and did they make a 'spare' or just repaint it?
Spare?
