2000 – Co-Opertition FIRST

Game-Co-Opertition FIRST

Team Name

Gompei and the H.E.R.D.

Robot Name

Gompei 2k

Summary for the Year:

With some cool new robot ideas in mind and some refinement to old ones, Team 190 headed into the six weeks of building. The team worked to improve their translational drive system and to top it off with some cool features. From ducking under the limbo bar to pull-ups, Gompei2k was a tough machine to beat. Although many of the kinks did not get worked out until it was time for the off-season competition, the team had a great time as always.
