At our regionals, our Robot suddenly started
acting very sluggish. Even at 100% power it moved like it was
on 60% or less. We checked the obvious :
a. friction - if something was touching the wheels or motors
b. if the connector plugs were properly in
c. changed the bricks
Other potential issues I can think of:
a. the connector wires are broken inside - need to change the connector
wires and check
b. one of the B or C motors is dying - but I think this would cause the robot
to swerve to one direction which is not the case.
I guess both could be dying - highly unlikely
Do the Mindstorms motors die often ? Is this common ?
Anything else folks can think of ? It's really bizarre. The day before
everything was running fine, and all of a sudden we have this issue.
