I feel that my school would completely SWEEP FIRST, because we have a full machine shop, and DAMN smart people. (Not to mention they know me by name at Fastenal.)


How does that relate to anything?

The guy was talking about the motor being a staple for powering FIRST robots. My school got 5th place in the U.S. in that competition last year.

ANYWAYS... That doesn't look too shabby! (Performance wise) How much faster can you go with the motor as opposed to before?

oh ok, Hey why dont you get 3 more motores, hook them up to a self made go cart, then have all the wires lead to gether into two(positive negative) and then hook that up to a few car bateries(maybe connect the batteries to a generator on the wheels...). if you want you could add some pedals..I guess that would be pretty cool!
