We noticed the FP gear ratios are completely different from last year (slower) and in-spite of what the KOP says, the motor has a 16 tooth pinion, not 19. The motor part number is 009680-9015 which is the same as last year so at least we know it is a 12v motor (one year they accidently shipped 6v motors!). But it can not be used as a spare as the pinion is 19.
That gear you posted does have 72 teeth - I’m assuming it is from this year’s gearbox, which I did not open yet, since they are usually 79 teeth - 0.8 module, 20 degree pressure angle.
Since we’re discussing FP motors, has anyone tested its free-load speed? FIRST specs it at 15800 RPM, but our tests showed 19000 RPM, as I already mentioned here. Some confirmation, either way, would be great.
