Re: Wheels

What kind of wheels are you guys using for your vehicle? I was thinking about using the 3.15 inch Pololu Wheels. I also know that CD wheels are very popular

" At the start of the competition block, teams will be given 5 minutes to set up or modify their devices and use their graphs and/or tables to calibrate them ."
