Post #6 Rover 5 Questions and information
This thread will mainly be about my Rover 5 with treads. I also have a thread
about my Vex Mecanum wheeled Rover 5.
Edit (April 15, 2014): There's a lot of discussion about how to keep the treads from coming off in this thread. While I ended up modifying the wheels on my Rover 5, I did test the Rover 5 with unmodified wheels. With the treads at the correct tension and with the gearboxes in proper alignment, I wasn't able to throw a tread no matter how aggressively I drive the Rover 5 with either type of wheel. While I think the modified wheel looks cool and the modified wheel does work better in some conditions than the unmodified wheel, it is certainly not necessary to modify the wheels of the Rover 5 to achieve very good performance from the chassis.
