It’s now time to assemble one of the coolest sub-assemblies of the robot, and that is: the drive system! It’s great because it involves the wheels. This will guide you through the steps of assembling the motor into its enclosure, then adding the fasteners. These steps are to be repeated 4 times for the wheels, and 2 times for the separate sides of the drive system.
*Note: If you plan on driving your Bowie around a lot (who wouldn’t?) we recommend blue thread lock on the fastener threads. It’s possible some pieces may require sanding.
There is an important step in this, and that is, you will need JB weld to securely attach the motor hub to the motor axel, and allow this to set for 24 hours. Otherwise, the tiny set screw may not have enough holding strength to keep it in place on tests with rugged terrain.
