So, in between study sessions, I was thinking of how to better stabilize a drivetrain while still allowing turning to be smooth. I cam up with this quick bit of CAD and was wondering if something like this would even be feasible
What do you guys think? My thought process here is with the wheels on both sides of the tubes, you essentially gain 4 “wheel lines” for more stability, due to the train covering more surface area. The “curve” you gain by placing wheels as such I expect also help in turning.
I don’t think this is even going to be built by my team, but it was an interesting thought to me. plus this gave me some practice CADing with VEXPro versachassis components
