The T'REX TANK is an all-metal tank chassis designed for all-terrain robot projects. All six lower wheels have independent suspension to help improve traction and absorb shock. High ground clearance allows the T'REX to handle very rough terrain. The body is aluminum, the gears, tracks, suspension struts and wheels are die cast zinc. These metals offer good corrosion resistance so no maintenance for these parts is required.
The idler wheels can be easily removed for cleaning by removing the circlip on the shaft. Be careful when removing these as they are under spring tension and may shoot off. The idler wheels have brass bushes that require minimum maintenance. A dry lubricant should be used for the idler wheels and gearbox. Batteries not included.
Note: The chassis requires assembly and controllers (for motors or driving).
The T'REX motors are 12V and work best from a 3S LiPo 5000mAh or better. Each motor has a stall current of 11A so you need a beefy motor controller. The chassis included mounting holes for either a Wild Thumper controller or the new T'REX robot controller.
