ALL our S7 drums have pretty much destroyed ALL horizontal undercutter type bots that they've ever faced.

the list includes:

1) Maniac Kathy (lost, but still took out the weapon)
2) Pure Dead Brilliant
3) Surgical Strike
4) Animosity

Rugburn in the past got killed by Humdinger 1 and others. ...not saying that they haven't improved it, but still....

Also, I wouldn't be worried about a beater against our drums. If they broke a frame rail in that competition, they wouldn't have lasted against us either.

I think that you might be underestimating how strong our bots really are.

But..whatever.....I won't be doing the flashing 'National Champs' thingie like you guys did last year, but I believe that we are the national champs..... Rolling Eyes

BotsIQ only exists in florida anymore
Its just a name here

This competition actually represented the winners of regional competitions around the country.

Rugburn, not to be confused with Rugburn Reloaded, is also one of the only bots to ever beat Humdinger 2.

Rugburn is a one piece frame. They sheared Clam Slams inner frame rail just like they did ours last year. The only reason rugburn lost was because of a bad gearbox. The samething plagued us earlier in the competition and also hit Uppercut(only a few matches after it was bounced off the roof twice and it had taken several other big hits)

The minnesota bots are absolute tanks.

Whatever.....it seems like there were way more bots at IQ than in KC....just admit it....

Fluffy 2 probably would have done very well if not won there and WMD took it down in 6 seconds.

i never said there werent. I said there were alot more nationally recognized bots in KC and i have to say to the level of the bots was MUCH higher then what was in miami.
You were looking for an event report and i told you what happened, then you started blowing smoke about how "your" bots are the true national champions....

This place has been pretty much dead...and it's so easy to get Cody upset.....

We need a little action happening, don't you think? alien

One question is...what happens to Plum next year? Isn't Alex graduating? and Cody is over the hill...

Penn state robotics hopefully

Atomic shock is actually alex bot. He had pete smith do the machining for him and funded the bot entirely himself so it goes with him.

Him and i have already started working on a design for next year.

Mr. Volker retired after this year but another teacher who has experience with science olympiad and other extra-curricular activities has stepped up to continue the team. Alex little brother is still on the team and there are a couple underclassmen from this year. They still have Still'n Shock on the shelf and aftershock can still compete at nationals. Final shock def needs a redisgn after this competition.

overall in 4 years 86-13
two loses to:
bloomsburg (MI and Vetex)
Humdinger 2
Rugburn

not to bad

again I have to say by FAR the best competition Ive been too. It was a little short on a turn out but the atmosphere was really what a competition should be like.

I cant wait to see the videos the NRL is having made!

You guys have had a very good run...I think that you went off in a wrong direction this year...but that's just mho....trying to make a better mousetrap doesn't always work out....

Seems like the newer bot designs were extremely vulnerable to horizontals....

Don't get me wrong...I think that your bots are and have been top notch....it also seems that this years started to take on more of a Bloomsberg look, with the narrower weapons and wedge front ends. But it also seems like that design did not go over well against some horizontals????

Or am I missing something? (as usual)

I do hope that next year's team does justice to the great reputation that you've built!!

alex would have done fine against rugburn without the piece we put on

I made a piece at the hotel monday night like what i had suggested you use against SS
We made two different ones
What we didnt think about was getting flipped
Atomic flipped as both bots went flying and was stuck on the pusher bar, would the other one have worked better?! who knows
