Post Distance per Rotation incorrect for Rembot RVW
Hi, I was trying to formulate interesting problem statement for school kids based on Ratios and Proportions. The idea was to move the different virtual bots for exactly 1 rotation on the distance utility and derive PI from that :P
Now when I tried it on the metric Distance Utility table, Found this interesting output:

Rembot wheel radius = 2.25cm
Calculated Distance for Rembot = 2 * PI * r = 14.13cm...(approx)
Actual Rembot = 20cm
Buggybot wheel radius = 2.75cm
Distance for buggybot = 17.27cm...(approx)
Actual buggy bot = 18cm (approx) acceptable

Mammalbot wheel radius = 3.25cm
Distance for Mammalbot = 20.42...(approx)
Actual for Mamalbot = 22cm (approx) acceptable

Thanks for the feedback! I'll check it out and we'll make adjustments the next time we release an update.

Thanks jbflot :)
Also, see if the start points can be made to coincide with 0 (zero) for all the robots in Utility tables. Currently there are slight offsets.
