pic: Zip ties man, zip ties!

Team 408 “spills its guts.”

Well anyone who was watching the VCU regionals probably saw this happen to us. The worst part was our electronics box, which we thought we secured down. We had been talking about bolting it down for weeks, and we all just assumed it had been. We got flipped hard and it fell out of its holder (and tore off the velcro off that had been used to hold in it (which was supposed to be temporary)). All that was holding it in was the wires going to the motors and all the pneumatics components. I think www.sparky384.com has a nice pic of us running on the field after the match to inspect the damage. It still ran, but it was pretty funny in hindsight.

Haha, man. Zip ties…
