Motor Configuration

Can you make the 2 Wire Motor 393 push more weight? If so, how? For example, is their a way to configure it differently.

dvm,

There are a number of ways you can configure your robot to push more weight. You can change the internal gear ratio of the 393 motor from the high speed option to the standard “high torque” motor gearing. If you haven’t opened your 393 motors, you should already be using the standard gearing. If you still need more torque, you can try changing your gear ratio after the motor. VEX currently has two good resources to help explain gear ratios and how to pick the ratio you need -

Let me know if you need any more help,
