I was wondering how you would calculate the top speed of treads? Does anyone know of a formula that can be used to find this?
Not sure exactly what you mean(?) The top speed they can handle or the top speed they a 'bot will go with a certain RPM or...?
Assuming the top speed, think of tracks as an extra pavement that you carry along and lay out to drive over with the rollers (those that drive the tracks) and you can see that the speed it goes depends on roller RPM and diameter (the diameter touching the tracks, not the "spikes" that drives it, if you gather).
