very true.. i really hope i can have some real-time interweb access at competition with my laptop and not just my phone... and i will make a "secret results of the battlebots competition" thread lol. And the website only says anything about taking videos and photos of a match. i guess pit photos are unrestricted? I hope so... i take a poo ton of video whenever I'm at competition. Last year I got 4 hours worth!

Looks pretty good, I just have a sneaking suspicion that a spinner could cause all kinds of problems if it hit the front before the arm reset though.

Pressure should be irrelevant for the reset time - in fact, it may be faster with a lower pressure.

EDIT:
and by reset time, I mean between when it's done raising the arm and when the arm is all the way back down.

IO didn't beat Exterminator. I only faced them after the gearbox failure and they put me over the wall.

I wouldn't be surprised if Exterminator went up against Executor and tapped out as a result.

Nope. That was eXecutor. They had a driving contest...eXecutor had white smoke so Axiom tapped out so they could keep their best robot in.
