2018 Sacramento Regional

From March 21st to 24th, Team 3303 competed at its first competition, the Sacramento Regional. Following 6 weeks of build season, this competition was the first real test of our robot’s performance. Immediately, our team realized that our robot had a serious design flaw- the ramp by which the robot acquired power cubes kept catching on a bump in the middle of the playing field, bending our intake system apart. Consequently, our robot struggled to intake and score power cubes. This in turn resulted in our robot finishing low in the rankings and not qualifying for the playoffs. However, our team has been motivated by our shortcomings to redesign our robot’s intake system before our next competition. We look forward to presenting the end result!
