Pros and Cons
Having only one motor saves space for other, more important, components.
Gears and chains are connected to all wheels to make sure all wheels are powered.
2 encoders are added to make sure autonomous trials stay consistent every time
2 more wheels were also added for more traction and balance
Speed was sacrificed with the reduction of two motors
With the addition of two more wheels, there was an increase in friction which led to occasional inconsistent autonomous runs.
Change Up Drivetrain V2
We changed our robot to a two-motor drive to save space and added two more wheels
