50 pound battlebot
« on: December 09, 2015, 05:58:36 PM »
I recently won a battle bot competition but my weakest part of the robot was the drive train i have another competition coming up. the robot has a weight limit of 50 pounds and does weigh that. I am looking for a new drive train that is 4 wheel drive and gets lots of traction, power, and manuverbality. I don't need much speed as the arena isn't very big. the robot has a size limit of 4 foot by 4 foot by 4 foot. also i don't want any motors over 24 volts. thanks please ask questions if you have any.

 ;D Hello!
To attempt to solve your problem in a timely manner, information is required;
1> What drive train do you use now?
2> can you provide a rough drawing of the layout?
3> What speed do you need? regular, then emergency speed?
4> could you use projections for possible advantages?
Since time seems to be of upmost concern, the most probable answer is going to be a generic
premade drive train; that you will have to buy. I will try to help, if I can.   ;) :) :D ;D
