Season Challenges
  • We attempted to create a very ambitious drive train this year. Through our attempt at swerve drive, we discovered that although we are very talented at creating west coast drives, swerve is not our expertise.
  • We also ran into issues with charging our pneumatic. Each time we used our catapult it would cause us to lose most of our pressure, requiring time to wait for it recharge in order to fire it again.
