Grip with too much torque
Join to comment
Hey, I'm building a very simple tug thing with two xl motors for drive. The goal is to create a very simple but powerful tug just to pull heavy stuff. By simple I mean so simple that it has no sort of aesthetic parts, no suspension, and not even steering. But I have a problem: too much torque and not enough grip. Is there a way to deal with this without reducing torque or adding weight?

If you're making it rear wheel drive, then you put as much of the weight as possible just in front of the drive wheels, if front wheel drive, I'd put it just behind them.

Quoting Robert B.

What are you using for drive? If you are using the rubber tires try to use the ones that have the most surface area in contact with the ground. Try the flat ones that are on the unimog. Also you could spray them with hair spray. A light coating would provide more grip on most surfaces.
