have you done wear testing on the wheels? If so which wheel has the longest life expectancy?

We’re about to start live with Greg from REV and their new product AMA. Ask any additional questions live during the show and we will get to as many as possible. https://twitch.tv/firstupdatesnow We have a giveaway or two of new REV products that haven’t even arrived yet so you’ll be one of the first to get it :slight_smile:

It’s also our first stream of the month and after champs we tend to lose a lot of subs. If you have a Twitch prime sub or have a few bucks to support the stream we would really appreciate it :slight_smile:

Dose Rev Ion have Solution for drop center for the drive train?

Generally we don’t recommend drop center drivetrains for most applications. A team running a WCD will have a far better experience with a flat drive that includes 2 omni wheels.

There is a way to do drop center if you want to, but that product will be part of phase 2 of ION.
