24-Jan-20 Friday Fail: Snapped chassis

Yes, it's not Friday! But we've got a great fail this week: piwars related as always.

We got metal suspension stoppers made by a friend. Here's one next to a 3d printed one.

Tonight while adding them to the robot a bit too enthusiastically, the chassis cracked. It might seem like a small part that's come off but this is a BIG deal.

Everything is screwed into the chassis. It's like... the chassis! It's the main body of the robot.

We laser cut a new one and are in the process of reassembling the whole robot.

We're taking this as a great opportunity to rewire everything.

Question is: do we take a spare chassis to Cambridge??
