Working on the robot

I have started the design of the slalom bot. Now I'm trying to figure out a good gear ratio that will give me good speed and acceleration, I need this because it will give me sufficient turning around the cups. So far the ratios I've tried are to slow or they don't have enough torque, using NXT to build a slalom bot may be very difficult so i might decide to go back to the RCX kit. Right now the RCX slalom bot was the best and fastest one so far so I might just reuse the same design. Hopefully the team the beat us in the fall competition wont beat us in this new spring competition!
