The Dragracer chassis worked to some extent however it will have to be modified eventually to accomodate a single axle to accept more torque as well as more power. We have several designs as to what we will build but only time will tell which we will eventually use.

We finished the autonomous portion of the raquetball challenge with flying colors. Granted it was on the last possible day that you could still get 100% on it.Since we finished we have been tearing into the Tractor Pull Challenge.I have come up with a beautiful dragracer design but whether it will prove effective has yet to be determined.
Were all working on coding for our autonomous run of the ball challenge, Jimmy and Collin are testing out the code and we have nearly got it, never mind, Jimmy just screamed at me from across the room celebrating that the got it complete and we just did and official... We passed :D

The Tetrahedron challenge has been completed!! The Crucifixion Bot did it!!! The next challenge is to put a raquetball into a PVC tube. Our design will hopefully succeed however we are have some engine trouble. Our code is also being rather finicky. We can't wait to get it working and move on.

We have finished our Challenge #2!! However unfortunately the Messterpiece simply could not deliver. Our beautiful child has been scrapped and a new legend has been born!! I Give You The Crucifixion Bot!!!! (Cue Applause) This new and highly advanced design has already proved it is superior to the prior competitor by finishing Challenge #2. We are now testing this amazing design to see if it can pass the rigorous training necessary to complete Challenge #2's autonomous portion. Catch us next week to see if the Crucifixion Bot will continue on to Semi-finals!!!

We have finished building our Challenge 2 Bot. We have playfully nicknamed it the Messterpiece since it is a masterpiece of ingenuity (frankly i'm surprised it moves) but looks like a mess. We got very creative about it after Mr. Martin crushed our dreams of a pretty Forklift design. If Mr. Martin wants to present a Challenge, Trial and Error is ready to beat it.
