    We figured out our motor wobble issue, our custom 256 encoder to 64 bit encoder has A and B swapped. Runs smooth now!

There is even a possibility that it isn't connected. (You'd be surprised what they disconnected to ship this thing.) Could someone with Solectria-wisdom tell me if this all looks normal? Thanks a bunch.
