The Mark II robot uses the same aluminum L-channel frame, with a modified acrylic (plexiglass) base. The same modified RC servos that were the drive system have been slightly modified, but remain the same. The largest change is the "bulldozer" servo-actuated scoop that is now on the front. Driven by a micro-servo that has the same torque and speed as the drive servos, Team Saber feels that defending the title should be relatively easy, although we have no knowledge of any other contestant in the 2 lb. class. With the crowd that came to see the 1999 event, we know we'll have our work cut out for us. Hopefully, plenty of driving practice will enable us to capture back-to-back titles.
