One of the things we're doing different this year is putting the robot away for a few weeks so the team can concentrate on the tools and attachments needed to manipulate the mission models. Once the tools are developed they will be modified to accommodate robot platform to deliver the tools to each mission. I know of a couple champion teams that do this and it makes sense. Another side benefit is that each team member can contribute without competing for use of the robot.
