“Closer” Robot: Test drive of 200:1 motor gearing (10/25/2009)

Earlier in the semester I had an awful time trying to get a car to move using a DC motor. It turns out it was a gearing issue. Working with Melissa Clarke (who mastered the axle/wheel interface) and Michelle Temple (who assembled and debugged the gear box), we got our tractor moving like it was at a Monster Truck Rally.
