Drive train TODO

After continued motor overheating, the latest theory is the motor wiring is getting snared in the encoder, causing the motor to stall. It's a tangled mess after many rebuilds. The right tire, right wheel, motor cover, motor plate all need to be reprinted. It needs to be rebuilt, with the cable untangled. It's a several day job. The short term solution is keeping the wires under tension so they don't flop into the encoder.

The CAD model doesn't show any obvious way for a cable to get into the encoder. The cables are on the outside of the TPU.
