I won't comment for our driver, but when I used it occasionally at home, it was better than tank (my previous favorite). It seemed more natural for locating the robot precisely where you wanted it, and at the orientation you wanted it.

Thank you very much Palardy!
Love the quote under your name. I understand they're making an Ender's Game movie.

Anyway, regarding the drivetrain, that's good to hear. I think I'll go through tonight and take a closer look and try it on ours. We really don't have any trouble with just straight unfiltered tank drive (wide bot tank drives almost drive themselves if done right) but it'll be a good learning experience.
