Pits. One of the most crucial places for an fRC team. Pits can be overly crowded, or somehow bigger on the inside. They can be ugly or beautiful.

148’s pit and 973’s super pit are definitely up there as some of the best ever. However, I will always believe that this pit is the best to ever exist.

In pit design, as in so much:
