|we were sick and tired of compromises: "speed or torque", "traction or maneuverability", etc.; bump that, we want it all. all we had to compromise was simplicity. - RogerR [more]|

When I first saw this, I was all "Holy cow!"
And then I was all "How'd they do that?"
Just curious--what vintage are those motors? 2004? 2005? 2005.5?

They are the 2005 kit motors.
It _screams_ at 12 volts. It is acceptable at 6 volts, but may not have enough umph to do the job. Right now, we are planning on limiting it to ~9 volts in programming, with the option to bypass that if the need arises.

I helped on this project, and since this post I built a wicked nice guard for the motors out of sand-balsted 0.050" aluminum sheet, hopefully Andy will post an updated picture of it with everything mounted.
