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

Our Team (13057 - GET SMART) used them for driving last season, Relic Recovery. The biggest complaint we have against them is they lack traction, and if you use the little rubber bumpers from Pitsco plan to replace them throughout the season as they disintegrate on the playing field. There are better options for scaling the crater, like the big rubber "Monster-Truck" wheels that Pitsco offers. I have seen them used as conveyors on other robots though this game doesn't really lend itself to a conveyor since you can only control 2 minerals at a time.
