More traction for sparki


#1

I find that sparki tends to slip on the line following sheet that comes with sparki. Any tips on increasing the traction? Thanks


#2

Try putting something in the grippers to weight it down. I did this so that Sparki could climb an incline…used a tennis ball or small battery…may or may not work.


#3

Thanks,but it happens with or without something in the gripper. I will try something heavier, but my surface is flat, no inclines.

Found the problem! It wasn’t a lack of traction, it was a lack of torque. When I replaced the NimH batteries with alkalines, all the problems disappeared. Too bad we can’t fit spark to take 5 NimH’s
