Re: [FTC]: Question on Pitsco Tank Treads wrt RM02

These treads are so unbelievably awful it's not even funny.

I remember in Res-Q many teams were certain that climbing up the mountain was necessary, but it turned out to be a massive distraction (for most). Are you guys sure you can't have some sort of linear slide that collects the minerals from outside the crater?

Remember, you only need to grab one or two at a time. So there really isn't a necessity to drive through and scoop up a lot of minerals at once.

Edit: If you are deadset on climbing into the creator, I'd recommend these treads:

They are pretty good for ftc and lasted a full season in my teams res-q season. (the sprockets have the same mounting 4 hole pattern as many other FTC wheels)
