does it change something if i use another motor beacause i don t have this one. Its for my second ball machine.

nop i want to build this one

and this motor goes faster than each others no ?

so well i will probably change some gears ...

(sorry for my bad english i speak french )=

Yeah the 12V motors are more powerful than the others, but as this isn't carrying any lift up you should be fine with upgearing some other motor.

ho my god i was confused i was sure it was for a ball machine but no xD

i think it will go too slowly )=

I want to build it D'=

Yes, it's essential to get a good wheel shape for the wheels to grab

Oh ok i can't build it then :( Oh well.

awe, too bad :(

The thin (orange) tubing would maybe work, too
