Go to Post We need to grow smart not grow fast. Andrew Schreiber SamC
Go to Post FIRST is hard. It's supposed to be. We can't keep giving people a check and expecting them to succeed. We need to stop this model. It takes a village to raise a child but it takes a community to build a FIRST team. Andrew Schreiber joelg236
Go to Post FRC: more like the real world than we could ever want. efoote868 Joe G.

Go to Post The dog-gear! Do u even shift bro? WileyB-J LedLover96
Go to Post Consider that the 12V from your robot isn't any different from the 12V from your car's cigarette lighter. (Err... sorry... that's "power port" these days, thank goodness.) dtengineering Billfred
Go to Post Goodness, YES. Please get a copy of the rules. It explains a lot, and if your robot does NOT follow the rules, you will not be allowed to compete. Really, it is very important. DonRotolo Tristan Lall

Go to Post You don't have to build a robot to be on a robot team. This isn't about the robot, it's about learning. engunneer Hallry
Go to Post So kudos for asking advice... you've got plenty of good advice so far in this column... but honestly, if Orville and Wilbur Wright had taken good advice they would have packed up and gone back to their bicycle shop. dtengineering nathan_hui
Go to Post So next time you speculate, label it as such and not as established fact. Please. Bad information is worse than no information. DonRotolo Hallry

Go to Post Just because something has never been done, doesn't mean it's impossible. See: everything ever. Taylor Grim Tuesday

Go to Post Safe zones are for the weak. ChristopherSD LedLover96
Go to Post As you get more into your years in FRC, you start becoming friends with more people. You should try it out. Robotics people are pretty nice. Andrew Lawrence CalTran

Go to Post It was the stupidest rule, but a rule is a rule, and everyone has to follow them. RyanN Gregor
Go to Post Seems decretive bumpers are the new rage now. I couldn't stand making them once, never mind twice. Gregor Hallry
Go to Post If there's one thing that I love, it's a good scouting challenge! wilhitern1 DampRobot
