Hello,

I was trying to calculate a gear ratio to my drivetrain using the jvn calculator, I used 2 cim motors in the vex pro 2-cim ball shifter, i used a 1:6 gear ratio and got a free speed of around 15 fps and a real life speed of 12 fps which seems like a healthy speed, however the pushing current draw was 194 amps which seems wrong so I’m guessing that either I didn’t configure something correctly or I don’t understand what pushing current draw means, can anyone help me understand how current in drive trains work.

In addition now that the new falcon is out I’m hearing a lot of talk from my mentors about current limit, I don’t understand why that is neccessery since from my understanding (which is probably wrong) you have ratio so that the nominal current draw will be healthy and my breakers won’t jump.
