You could try adding a 3rd bearing block to the braking axle, in the center, and use that as the wing nut stop point (rather than adjacent to the right wheel). And maybe instead of a spring, you could add a little silicon o-ring to absorb some of the shock instead. No guarantee of success here, and I can't provide a good physics-based rationale, but they're variables to play with that may help you find a solution.Totally up for any ideas here. I have a slow and accurate car but wanted to experiement with a fast car. And I am having lots of problems stopping lol.
When I cut my power even a meter short and "coast" it is still going far to fast and skids a lot as the wingnut brake system engages. My thoughts are I am not wiring it for regen braking (and no idea how to). The motor does not have much resistance to it at all and I was counting on that to assist is the stop. Anybody point me in a direction?
I am also experimenting with the wingnut compressing a spring prior to stop. For some reason that is making it kick a little sideways so more work needed.
I am sure I will end up using my slow but accurate car but would love to tame this guy. Any tips (especially with regen braking) would be helpful!
Edit: found 1 schematic on wiki. Will rearrange some wires and give it a go
Could you clarify?most of the Ohio based teams are using some kind of smart braking using some caps and resistors.. any idea what they are doing?
caps meaning capacitors??? banana clips?? lol im confusedmost of the Ohio based teams are using some kind of smart braking using some caps and resistors.. any idea what they are doing?
You basically short circuit the motor... Theres a good deal of research that needs to be done to understand it if you dont have an electrical background... or you can just randomly implement it like most people lolLooks like ~regen braking.. can someone explain this?
