Our gearbox was at the "rear" of the robot, however the robot can be driven with either end the front. It drove the "rear" axles and sprockets and chains conected the front and rear axles for 4 wheel drive. Everything else on the robot was very semetrical and balanced so to counteract the rear gearbox, the battery was placed more near the front (opposite end). Everything is kept relatively low as our robot is only a total of about 14 inches tall.
