Yes, we have a stinger, and this practice run at Queen City with 2481 and 45 demonstrates potential. We found we have the weight to beef up the cylinder for St. Louis. We're going to fabricate new delrin end caps (or just put a PVC end cap on the end just like we did in 2003) to permit the stinger to slide as the robot orients on the bridge. We'll also ensure we can leave the stinger extended for the duration of the triple attempt, such that it will not touch the ground with the bridge balanced.
Ironically, members of 45 told me it was this practice run that encouraged them to plan out their triple with 3940 and 781 for the Queen City eliminations - the eventual event victors who handed our alliance a *very* narrow defeat in the finals. Glad we could be of assistance, lol.
