Torque gear ratios are very important for most types of lifts in VEX. This is simply because it requires a lot of torque to raise a mobile goal or a mechanism in the air. This is how we came to the idea of a high torque motor cartridge. We wanted to create a part that would improve something that had to do with our robot this season but would also be applicable in future seasons. For high torque gear ratios, our new part allows for a significantly more compact and simple installation.
