As many of you probably already know, Robot Power is importing a 42mm gearbox, similar to what Banebots used to sell.

taking it a step or 2 further, I cooperated with Chris from Robot Power, to beef these up and make them battle hardened.

Chris posted a few pictures of them, so here they are





we discussed a few other minor mods and hopefully he can get the manufacturer (Will's friend Jackie Chan) to make this an OEM product

If interested, contact Chris from robot power.

btw: the 2 samples that I saw ran very smooth, had all steel gears and ring, etc. Threaded mounting hole locations were a bit wishy washy, but nothing that can't be dealt with.

Ya...me too.....I received them, modded them and then shipped them back...so we'z in da same canoe

I suppose that a pair of these in a pushy bot (12 ro 15 lbs) with lots of rubber on the ground could do some serious pushy damage!!!

more of a 30/60/120 spider pig type gbox tho...too heavy for a 12 or 15 unless..... alien

then again. you could always call Chris and BEG!!!!!... affraid

only for possible bragging rights....you can get away with much smaller motors and not make a difference....as long as you have anough power to light up the tires, you won;t get any more to the ground. On a 12/15 lbs. bot, with typical 16 -20:1 gbox, and 2-3" wheels, much smaller brushless motors will do the job just fine.

Use the extra weight elsewhere.....weapon/armor/whatever
