drive mounting:

    forward drive mounting - drive motors are in front with a single rear caster or dual rear casters (al101)

    mid drive mounting - drive motors are mounted in the middle of the base with a rear and forward caster.

motor drivers:
the ideal motor driver for all large zagros robot bases is the md22.  for all large bases, motors should pull less than 1amp each under normal usage.  if using the microcore hc11 package the mc motor driver is perfect and recommended.
