Hey so I was checking out this Question thread you posted:
https://www.collaborizm.com/thread/HJFvUtAq

I wouldn’t go with servo’s it will complicate what you are trying to do (unless you’re going for some type of spring mechanic). I’ve seen some youtube videos where people just swap wheels out for these rough terrain “C’s” made from a PVC pipe cut in half (not sure what to call them) and the robots do great going over rough terrain.

So maybe stick with stepper motors, you’ll likely get way more control over speed / synchronicity that way as well.

You don’t even need a belt, seriously check out some YouTube videos, just replacing the wheels with “c” as I mentioned could be done by cutting a pvc pipe in half, gives the bot an insane amount of agility over obstacles

I agree to Anton Volt. Stepper seems a better option
