Alright I'm convinced Razz
I think I'm set on my way now, now to start building (and decide on whether to leave the clutch on the drill gearboxes)!

Thanks for all the help Steve and Glen

No problems Smile

Clutch they jam up on the drive because its unlikely to stall due to traction limitations of your wheels - they'll just spin the wheels against the ground with the robot pushing against a wall.

The weapon might need the clutches disabled too in order to get enough torque, you'll just have to build it and see. Another option is put limit switches before the ends of the travel so it cant stall against the end stops and burn your motors
