Drive Train – Six wheel arcade drive train.

Manipulator – We had a spring and piston powered kicker, which could kick the ball upwards of halfway across the field.  The piston would compress, but be locked by a spring, and when released, the force from the spring and piston would send the ball flying.

Bump Crossing – Since we had to cross the bump, we designed our six wheel drive train to have a raised middle wheel to reduce rocking when crossing.  The middle wheel made us stable and able to take the impact of crossing the obstacle.
