I have a question. Well, I just entered the Friend of Best program, and I have received my Kit, What is the first thing that I should be working on? Should I build the robot first or program

It would help a lot if you could tell us which kit you are referring to. ROBOTC is supported on many platforms. As for starting, build the robot first and then your program.

You could leave them out and use a longer axle instead. They are clutches that will pop when the motor is forced to turn when the wheel is stuck.

we are having trouble re-programming our robot.
is there a way that we can delete the previous program and change it to a different one?
