Our flywheel is currently 2 V5 motors on a 1:25 ratio geared for speed. When we set both to 200 rpm the highest they can reach is about 114 rpm. We are redoing our intake and will have 2 spare motors. Would it be viable to just make a 4 motor flywheel, or should we attempt to reduce friction. We already have washers in between collars and metal.
Bearings will definetly help your case, but if you’ve got more than 2 on a single axle try to make sure they’re aligned, if they’re not they can significantly slow down your output speed.
Also, make sure your axles aren’t bent either.
