Well for the modified rhino tracks it looks like that's kind of their thing. I'm looking forward to seeing this in Duluth!

Re: pic: Team 5464 - Rhino Tracks, Scissor Lift, with a Climb

The rhino tracks are sort of our thing now, we love the "tracktion," versatility, challenge, and aesthetic of them. We have different gear ratios in our evo shiffters from last year, so we can move fast in addition to having 1000+ pounds of push (we tested ). In addition, we have three sets of them so we can make practice drive trains and don't have to spend the money on new drivetrains. Also, they don't weight that much more than a KOP drive train.

This video is justification for the tracks (we are the robot in front of alliance station two, we get a gear stuck in our hopper): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6LU...RKgab7UDNckWy7

The scissor lift we did for three reasons: #1 low CG, #2 incredible height (the first time we powered it on we had several more stages than where necessary and we almost put it through the 30ft roof of our shop ), and #3 our programming mentor insisted it wouldn't work (challenge accepted).

Our team really likes to do designs that seem unorthodox, challenging, or against the norms. We like the challenge, mimicry leads to optimization and efficiency, innovation leads to the future.

Love the idea of unorthodox. Excited to see how you guys do this year, I'll be rooting for you all the way down here in Georgia! (:

Re: pic: Team 5464 - Rhino Tracks, Scissor Lift, with a Climb

I really like the design of the Rhino Tracks! Team 852 is going with treads as well and I think that the low CG will definitely help when going for the scale and encountering other robots on the opposing alliance
Quick question: where did you get your belts/tracks from?

They appear to be part of the AndyMark Rhino track drive.

Correct, we take that kit and adapt it to our needs for the year. For instance, in 2016 we needed to cross the defenses, so we left the tracks in their standard configuration, as its designed to climb over stuff. https://www.facebook.com/BluejacketR...type=3&theater

Last year, we wanted a shorter wheel base, since the track is a constant length, we went up with it instead of out.https://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/s...highlight=5464

This year we wanted a larger contact patch with the ground to avoid tipping, so we went out instead of up.

We would have loved to go head on head with you guys using our 2017 summer robot, ask anyone we played against about our defense https://youtu.be/lWnA2SqHIu4?t=1m25s, I wish I had a good video of our bot before we pulled the tracks off it
