pic: Team 8's eight days of teasers: Day1

Day 1, check it out. Over the next 8 days before ship, we will reveal one teaser each day, each one more and more revealing.

let the speculations begin!

looks like we’re putting wheels on this year’s bot. and maybe some extraneous chain…

Ooh! Ooh! I know! I know! Though I suppose it would ruin the fun if I spoiled it… :stuck_out_tongue:

Is it an aluminum welded frame, a compressor, connecting wire, a drive wheel, light weight chain, and a sprocket connected to heavier weight chain?

That pretty cool you guys!

is that a torque clutch you got on that motor?

I suspect either Ackerman (or some variant) or a turret with that “extra” chain. I’m leaning towards the former.

you’re about half right…

Yeah, extremely expensive, but definitely worth it so far.

I don’t know about that. You can see a wheel in the bottom left that appears to have an axle that connects to the frame on the outside. Also there is some chain on the far side of the very visible wheel that looks like it may run up to the front wheel as well.

looks nice so far…
looking forward to see more pictures
