I’m debating whether or not to change my wheels gearing to speed but the only problem is that my robot weighs 20 pounds with batteries and everything. If someone could help me with the choice of changing the motors gearing to speed or leaving them for torque I would be grateful.
I agree on most of it if u turn to high speed ur motors will be dropping dead on the match almost every single time.
I defer with you though on the mecanum wheels nightmare. we have a robot with mecanum wheels on high speed and it works really fine. never stops or anything. Although I add It is pretty light. soo the weight is minimum.
Look for a way to make the robot lighter, and instead of turning ur motors to high speed work a drive transmision to make it go faster without stressing the motors more.
