Post Syncing motors and using encoders
I want to use my encoders to go a targeted distance, but I need to sync the motors since the distance is about 25 feet. If I sync the motors at the beginning of the program, and then write the encoder program, how does the time factor for the syncing work since I'm programming time for the encoders?

I haven't actually done syncing before, but I guess you should try to sync as often as possible? And go slowly in addition to that, if it's not a race.
