Does anyone have any recollection of drivtrains that were designed to extend outside of the frame perimeter of the robot upon starting the match? I am excluding 2015 and the misc expanding, tethered, and wheelie bars that were a result of that strange year.
I know there have been some instances of canting wheels into corners to increase the effective wheelbase. I am curious of any other expanding drivetrains that were used to increase the size of the wheelbase. I suspect there were a few examples in the 2002-2007 era.
There are probably plenty of examples of omni wheels that are placed on floor pickup mechanisms that technically increase wheelbase, but I am really looking for examples of stand-alone deployment mechanisms/ drivetrain to increase the wheelbase.
