Pros and Cons

Spin Up Drivetrain V2


  • In this design, 6 motors power the drivetrain but there is a differential on 2 motors to switch out for the intake

  • We used six 200 rpm motors with an 84:60 gear ratio to provide some speed and torque. 

  • The wheels spin at 280 rpm which gives us enough speed and power


  • While intaking, the drivetrain loses 2 of its motors and becomes a 4 motor drivetrain

  • Other robots can easily push us laterally because we use omni wheels

  • This design takes up a lot of space and there are a lot of gears which increase the friction
