    I've had this happen to me with Shu! where the end stage planet gears just got stripped. It wasn't that the motor was being overvolted (it was a 12V motor running on 9.9v), it was the load on the end...

    The odd thing, I find, is that I can't get the gearbox on their own. I guess it's probably more economic to simply get the whole assembly premade than it is to have the parts shipped in separately....

    Ah, I had forgotten one of your gearboxes has broke. I'd open it up and see what's going on in there first but for a replacement box, it might just be more economical to simply replace the gearbox...

    Technically the gearbox on your motors is a drivetrain. If you mean spur gears, I don't personally think it is worth it with the motors you have now. If you were running brushless or bigger motors,...

    Aye, there'll be other events. Just a case of bad timing and missing parts. I've got Azriel running and will update tonight on that.

    Short of welding the wheel to the shaft with a metal plate, the "pin through the shaft" idea is the best method I can think of. However, you could also drill a small indentation, attach a wheel hub...

    You could drill through the shaft where the wheel overlaps and put a bolt and nylon nut on it. I ended up having to do this with another robot at EXR Manchester to keep their wheels on but it works....
