fun fact about 195 while on the topic of in-season improvement: 195 has an extremely impressive and under-recognized streak currently active. They always win their second event. The last time 195 didn’t win their second event in a season was all the way back in 2010. That’s 10 consecutive (skipping 2020-2021) seasons of either already being the best team at their second event, or improving substantially until their robot and team reaches that level.

195 doesn’t always win their first event, but you can absolutely count on this team to make massive improvements within the season to maintain their absolutely dominant record and high reputation. They’re a model of continuous improvement that teams everywhere should learn from and take note of.

edit: I forgot about 2017 whoops, general point still applies

I don’t see a flexible wire way around the Turret. How did you manage cables for the rotation?

That’s a cool stat. :slightly_smiling_face:
We have almost the exact same streak at our 2nd event also currently active.
2010-2019, 2020-21 seasons covid, 2022…10 different regional event locations with 11 regional streak (hawaii twice).

It(purple cable wrap) sneaks out the back and down in between two plates, and you can see a management system on the far side of the bot near the bottom of the shot while it moves. You can see a similar system on Celt-X’s robot on their BTB https://youtu.be/RAH9h6DpPCI?t=284
