Vex Robotics Build Report 7/Christmas Robotic Road Trip, Part 3
Today I got up at 6:00 a.m. and made cinnamon rolls for breakfast. After breakfast, Peter, Justin (my other uncle who likes to do robots), and I started to test the bot that we built the other day. But again, there was a problem. As the tracks went up or down, it brought the gears away from the other gears. We forgot to hinge it where the gear was!! Thinking about what to do, Justin suggested we should look at the MythBusters’ extension article online. In some of the pictures towards the end, we saw that they used a sawn beam in between the gears. For the rest of the day we worked on the tracks.
