for some reason just randomly adding 10 steel plates to our robot made it so much less jank, it actually doesn’t rock when it stops now

My opinion: Keep the bot as light and fast as possible without compromising it’s structural integrity.


just use aluminum for everything, steel is much harder to work with and weighs literally 2 times more
