Recommended gear ratio for drive trains

My robot is very jerky and I found out it because of my gear ratio. Is there recvomened gear ratio for my base so that it becomes less jerky

I always recommend 200 rpm direct. If you are good with your center of gravity, you can go faster(we do, we CAD) but a lot of teams in our club struggle to make faster drives.

EDIT - also, I don’t know if this falls under programming support, You might want to change that.


What is the current gear ratio, what size wheels, and what size is your drive base?


Also the robot weight if you know that?
