Re: Corsetto, Emerson, Holley Debate 8:30pm ET Tonight!

775pro stall capabilities and 775pros in drivetrains has been a pretty hot topic lately, with a lot of well-informed people not being able to come to an agreement.

I'm sure it's too late to add discussion topics for this show, but I'd be interested in hearing the opinions of some of FRC's best mentors in the future.

How about the balance issue of teams capabilities, resources, and success.

Am I the only person that thinks this is a problem or are there others.

Unsure what you mean specifically, can you explain more?

If we don't get to this tonight there's a good chance we will grab this for Candidly Speaking next week.

If/when you do discuss 775Pros, any chance you can snag some guest spots for people from VEXPro or notable electrical engineering wizards (like Al) to chime in?

Sure. You know how some teams can do it all. They build two absolutely ineradicable robots that can do everything extremely well with lots of custom parts every year. They have lots of time to but together a jaw dropping autonomous before there first event. You look at them and just know that they will be rank #1 and win the event. Then they also get Chairman's, a Woodie, and Deans List and go to worlds every year. And they have a team with lots and lots of students and mentors.

Compared to the teams that have no money and can barley get a drive train and one simple mechanism to function.

This, I think is a problem.

Better take away all those teams resources so they can't do all that awesome stuff! While we're at it, better distribute their mentors out to other teams because they shouldn't get to have all that experience on one team.

I don't think he's saying we should remove those resources from the top tier teams, but instead try to create better resources for lower level teams? The best teams to create these kinda resources would be the teams that already achieved this level of success.

Or you know, someone who has actually run a 775 pro drivetrain in competition

Yes this is what I am saying.

As for www.thecompassalliance.org I have looked at it and it seems helpful. Thank you.

I'll take an additional stab at describing a topic based around this. How about discussion centered on members of new teams, understanding and responding to the imbalance of technical achievement.

What does it mean to be a high-performing team? How does one get there? On that journey, what attitude should one take? Should FIRST HQ have a goal as to the technical achievements that teams should strive for?

Again, not required for this round of FUN, but a potential future topic.
