Tag Archives: FIRST Frenzy: Raising The Bar

Silicon Valley Regional Finals (2004)

FIRST Frenzy: Raising The Bar was the 2004 FRC game.  Back then, there were no bumpers, no kitbot, no off-the-shelf drive systems, and not even three-on-three play.  (There also wasn’t a safety award yet; I doubt you could have 130-pound robots dangling like this anymore.)  It was also, if you listen to the old-timers, one of the best games in FRC history.

If nothing else, it’s worth it for a close look at 254′s robot from that year.  Simply beautiful work, and one of the earliest examples of the now borderline-common West Coast Drive.
