I wish to use 4 motors for my fyp soccer-playing robot
two for control moving robot
one for kick forward
Want add one more for kick left right
Is it possible to use 4 motors?

I you dont want to buy a mux you can use rcx cables to chain to motors to one motor port. Or you can use rcx cables to run a motor off of a sensor port. Both should work in theory, but you have to be careful about power consumption and cabling.
