    Here is a great tip from our friends from Mechanical Maniacs FTC #7750:

    I think the most important thing we learned this year that we should share is FUSES! Every team I know of has burned out several motors! Not only is it an extra cost, because you have to replace them, it is TOTALLY AVOIDABLE! The motors themselves don't have fuses, but you can buy wires that have fuses. Every time that you would burn out a motor instead a fuse burns out. Then it resets. This could make it so that you NEVER BURN OUT ANOTHER MOTOR!!! Every team should be using fuses!
