We noticed that our robot tended to slip and didn’t have a good grip on the ground. Also despite using traction wheels at the front and the back our agility was quite good. That is why we decided to use only traction wheels, and also drive to make sure that at least one rotating wheel has contact with the floor.

It works a lot better now. There is only a bit too much tension on the chain, and the motors need to work harder.
