    Good luck with the experimentation and I look forward to hearing about the results, thus far I don't think anyone has tries the RoboClaw drivers.

    I have been experimenting with a few drivers
    Looks neat but a little pricy

    I have been experimenting with a few drivers

    The vnhd7012ay seems to work ok, but i am nit sure it is suitable for 24v

    I have just ordered a twin channel 100a version, i will post my findings when it arrives

    I figured 100 amps is way more than i need so the driver will never be stressed
