If you look closely, you can just about see the pneumatic tubing from 1741 caught by 45’s ball-roller wheels. For at least the last half of the match, the drivers managed to run laps while the robots were attached to each other. I’m not aware of any damage done to either robot in the process.
And their alliance won the match.
No penalty for hitching to your alliance partner. 1741 installed a shield after that match so they wouldn’t risk entangling an opponent later on.
Great job managing an unusual situation by both teams, and I’m sure the match win didn’t hurt, either.
Both really beautiful robots, I can’t wait to see them in action.
45 looks like a beast again as always, how many hurdles did you guys average a match?
