294’s homemade “Snap-on” Victors
This is an idea Adam Heard and I came up with on the same day simultaneously in different parts of California. Basically, we always use nylon hex screws on electronics because they eliminate the possibility of shorting from the victor terminals. Both our teams decided we would use 2 Victor stacks this year, using 2 inch Vex standoffs. What we do is dremel down the nylon screw so that when inserted through the Victor holes, the edge of the cap slides over and locks the Victor in place. This is much like how the fans are attached. The resulting victor combination after correct dremeling easily stands up to violent shaking, yet can be separated rather quickly.
