I’ll ask what everyone’s wanting to know. What new VEXpro products are we going to see? Not going to answer yet? How about a hint? A whiff of a hint?

Paul is definitely one of the most experienced and well respected FRC mentors to ever participate in FIRST.
That's awesome that he is making time to participate in this FUN interview this off-season.

What's one piece of advice you would give to any current or aspiring drive coach?

If nothing else, it'd be nice to know if/when VEXPro is announcing their 2018 refresh. From a recent video, it looks like they've prototyped a versaframe gusset with direct mounting for 775/550/BAG motor. (Or I could be completely wrong and those bolt circles are for something else entirely )

Earlier this year, Paul offered to have VEX run some objective testing on different drivetrain configurations. Does he have any updates on this?

More like 4 CIMs or 6 Minis... But we already know his answer to that.

What new vex pro products can we expect this year?

How much more money would I have to spend with Vex for you to put the versaplanetaries in FIRST Choice?

Who smells better - Andy Baker or JVN?

Seriously Paul how the **** did you manage to make this call to carry 2 gears and foil our strategy?

https://youtu.be/e0Eg9DcyV4E?t=1m55s

If we were 10 seconds faster and gave up a hang or two I think we could have pulled it off. You can tell i've been thinking about our strategy all summer... Huge props to you, your drive team, and alliance for pulling off the win

What was your strategy? They got 4 rotors without using one of the two gears so it would have been just as difficult to stop their 4 rotors even if they had only brought one gear; plus should have been a foul or tech foul in your favor, so it doesn't seem like it was a good strategic decision to carry two gears. What am I missing?

Is IFI's strategy of hiring great FRC coaches an elaborate plan to make Texas FRC more competitive with the rest of the world?
