It take a refined design, something a lot of teams lacks, with aspects that win.

Driving and being able to fix what you have. This is where alex and I win lol

oh and this thing is my favorite robot i have seen so far

the drive is very defensive with the wedge and uses it the right way to try to upset the other robot and make it gyro
but it also has a very fast and powerful weapon as u can see at the very end

That robot is so solid.
And I've seen robots with wedges incorporated in the back, but the way it made use of it was beautiful.

Thanks everyone,

The competition level was extremely high, and to be honest, I'm surprised The Brain did so well. We owe a great deal of our success to our driver keeping the steel bits pointed at our opponents and the plastic parts away. We only took two hits to our UHMW drivetrain structure through the whole competition.

I'll get some photos and more details about The Brain and Indestructa-Bull up in the RIG section in the next day or two, but the weapon motor on Brain is actually just a 500 size Turnigy outrunner, with rings epoxied over the can to guide the belts.
