  1. One of the drivetrains on my new bambinobot is significantly stiffer than the other, causing the robot to drag on that side. Any suggestions from staff on how to go about getting this fixed or replaced would be appreciated.

    The small yellow motors are not always going to be the same. Some will be stiffer than others. Your motors require a bit of tuning. There is a new release of the BombiniBotWin and BombiniBotMac distribution folders from 10/5/15. First, download the new folder so that you will have the firmaware updates and new scratch examples. Second, follow the instructions in the BombiniBot-Overview document to upgrade you Arduino. Last, follow the instructions in the Tuning BombiniBot Motors blog.
