Hi,

Best idea right at the moment... Spec out what you need, how much weigth to carry/move, what voltage, what power is available, purpose etc.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

A DC motor with a rack and pinion is probably the easy way - it would take quite some power to do this with a solenoid.
