Robot in 3 Days: What Documentation Do You Prefer?
It might be good for the Ri3D teams to point to where good information on how to strategize is, so that teams that may not know how can learn. Just like a list of good resources on the subject.

West Coast Drive Design Help

4-cim vs. 6-mini-cim drivetrains
Thanks! I must have slipped a digit or something when I did the calculation a few years ago; I got something about a tenth of that. Yes, that's significant. It would be interesting to test the...

The tools you can't get through FRC build season without?
Was reminded about this thread checker tonight. Comes in very handy to figure out which bolt is needed for a part. It's much eaiser to use then a normal thread gauge. We keep it tied to our...
