Your lack of gyroscopic stabilizers very much concerns me.

I really wish we had better footage of matches from back then, everything from 2008 on TBA looks like it was recorded with a potato.

We refer to that as "slug drive" among my group of friends. It's one swerve module in the front and a skid plate in the back. It's suggested every year as the ideal drive train.

Re: pic: 2 Wheel Swerve Drive

A variation of this was done back in 2000 by FRC team 47, Chief Delphi. They used two swerve modules and two swivel casters to accomplish the same thing. It was incredible for its time.
