last e-mail.

Since you are trying different speed and if you like to experiment then try 
using a differential gear for better rotation and consistency. The Hightechkids 
website has a simple exercise on this option. Try it out first before you 
perform surgery on your robot unless you have spare to test it out.

Detail explanation on differential is listed in section 2.5 of the following 
reference. 


BTW, above text also has Wheel and tire sizes in mm on page 3.37 which can be 
found on the wheels.

Thanks for all those who shared their ideas on gears.
 
Can anyone suggest tips and tricks for getting consistency in turning the robot.
 
We have slowed down on turns. It has improved but still lot of error.
 
Thanks in advance.
