Rowdy 1 and 3 are completely ripped up
Rowdy 1 (the 2000 robot) was salvaged for 2 speed controllers back in 2002. It is now completely dismantled and the frame (one of the two we welded) is in Auter’s room.
Rowdy 2 is still in use and we show it off to junior high kids to recruit them.
Rowdy 3 was ripped apart after it lost IRI. we salvaged its speed controllers too.
Rowdy 4 is still there, although modified from IRI
Rowdy 5 is back home in Indiana, and will be worked on this summer for IRI and Ford Sweet Repeat. It will be dismantled over my dead body. It is too great of a robot to break.
One time (I was a freshman then) we had a convo to show off Rowdy 2 to the junior high kids. As you know the 2001 game, it featured 8 ft high, movable goals, a center balance, 3 big balls, and several small balls. Rowdy 2 was a big ball capper and balancer (although the balance didn’t work well). There was one extremely annoying 7th grader in the seats [he would make Buddha want to kick his butt], who was sitting in the aisle row. there was a big ball at the front of the auditorium, so I picked it up, took the arm up 8-9 feet, and dropped it on his head. He got Po’ed and it was pretty funny.
