Washington TSA highly recommends ordering everything (especially complete kits) through Andy Hill at NW Technical Products. Not only is he a sponsor for Washington TSA, he is also really good to work with. If you do order from him, please thank him for his support of TSA.
Here is what we recommend as a starting point. You can always add more but with this your students will be able to build a very competitive robot. Most TSA teams don't use any more than this:
