 Based on the graphs above, it is strongly recommended that motors that must work in concert (such as 2 sides of a lifting arm, or the 4 motors of a chassis) not be mixed-and-matched between Ports 1 & 10, and Ports 2-9. Builders should plan out their motors in advance so that coordinated functions are either controlled completely by external motor controllers (Ports 2-9) or controlled completely by Ports 1 & 10. Based on the graphs above, it is strongly recommended that motors that must work in concert (such as 2 sides of a lifting arm, or the 4 motors of a chassis) not be mixed-and-matched between Ports 1 & 10, and Ports 2-9.

 Additionally,​ for robot designs making use of a [[programming:​controls_algorithms:​pid|PID algorithm]] to match the speeds of 2 motors, plugging those motors into port 1 and port 10 will allow them to be much more responsive to the algorithm'​s requests for small adjustments. Additionally,​ for robot designs making use of a [[programming:​controls_algorithms:​pid|PID algorithm]] to match the speeds of 2 motors, plugging those motors into port 1 and port 10 will allow them to be much more responsive to the algorithm'​s requests for small adjustments.
