Re: Dropping Sand

go slow and keep the sand pouring in the bucket. inform your partner if the bucket is tilted, always keep it level and still I don't believe that a tilting bucket would affect anything as the center of mass is still in line with the chain and it is loading only from one point. its still important t...

Re: Dropping Sand

I know that people always do slow to fast but I feel like there is more of an advantage to stay slow or go from slow to fast back to slow.

Re: Ohio 2019

I have no idea either. Honestly expected a higher placement than 3rd in an invitational which did not have many competitive teams competing. ...Troy, MI... Yes Troy, MI is a good team that shouldn’t be placing 3rd based off of previous results To me, it looks like they did not bring a full team as ...
