Drive base width for long goal zones

For anyone that has made a drive base 30 holes wide or wider, is your robot capable of fitting 2 stacks in the bigger goal zone and if so, how difficult or easy is it to do so?

This depends largely on the type of robot your building. With a tray bot, the stacks are created externally in relation to the wheel base, so you should be able to fit two stacks with a 30 wide base if you stack diagonally. With an internal db4 cube tube, it’s more important to have a smaller base. I think the magic number in that case is a maximum of 8 holes on either side around your cube.

Thanks, I’ll definitely keep this in mind when drafting for rebuilds.
