True. You got me there. I have to give you credit for coming up with that design, but now I get to use it.

1. CC335, welcome to FTC. I hope you have great succes...well, less than my team at least. :twisted:

2. Your website's background is extremely distracting, CC335, I would suggest changing it to something more plain so it's easier to read.

3. You do NOT need omni wheels to create a multi-directional robot. I would think you really only need about 5 motors, including drive motors. But considering there are not chains, you might need like 2-3 lego motors to turn.

4. The problem with multi-directional robots is that they are hard to drive. Especailly in a small FTC field. I would think it would be a more wise to spend time coming up with a solid design rather than tryint to build a comlex drive train, unless you plan on playing defense.

Anyways, good luck. :D. I WON"T be using a multi-directional robot drivetrain.

Thanks. The website was designed not designed to be all info, but combines info and other stuff. Secondly, with the new control system, it would be easier then you think, though I just posted the last part of my last post as a joke.
