Practicing and FIRST $10,000

We have been getting in a lot of practice with the practice robot. The arm is faster now and we are getting better at controlling everything and stacking.

New Organizers from Amazon

We are very excited that Amazon now has these, so that we can stop buying green and yellow organizers. These seem to solve multiple of our problems with some of the other cases, and don't appear to come with any annoying stickers on the clear covers. We will be buying many of these throughout the year. 

FIRST $10,000

We have began working on improving our FIRST $1000 document by adding on a FIRST $10,000 which is the idea of what tools would we buy if we were starting a new team and had $10,000 to spend on equipment.

Spectrum FIRST $10,000

Hopefully this will help some teams find tools and equipment to get them started. This is still a living document so it may be updated regularly.

  1. I deleted my car decomp since they are debatable as you mentioned. Also be sure you update your intake boot into the design with the metal clamp. The plastic intake clamps have a reputation for loosening and causing an air flow that will burn off the Saw down. Last, there is an noodle upgrade kit to your carburetor at the contest that you've obtained the Walbro. At case that you've obtained the Zama carbohydrate I think you're fine.
