On Friday I was talking to our teams "adviser" at school about next years bot. On the topic of the four wheel drive system...

Adviser: Why dont we just use one motor and gearbox and use axles and pulleys to drive all four wheels, instead of two motors on each
side?

(It takes a few seconds for me to realize he was serious...)

Me: We wouldn't be able to steer.

Adviser: This is one of those times when I wish that I wouldn't talk.

Phahahahahah... I guess that was before he had his morning coffee lol

7 concussions most of them from hockey lol, ive played ice for 13years now

when we were brainstorming our first bot, before we had even looked into any other bots, alex being the only one who really knew anything at that time, i suggested ring spiner esque with chain flails with hockey pucks hahah

those were the days when alex was shy and quiet
