Advanced Notification of Interruption to Shipping
We are now expecting to move to our new premises in Rugby during the last week in November. During the move, we will not be shipping any orders out for the period Tuesday 25th November to Tuesday 2nd December. Last shipping day will be Monday 24th November and re-commence Wednesday 3rd December. Orders placed after 12 noon GMT on the 24th will be processed from the 3rd December
Whilst our machine shop is re-located, we are unable to carry out machining modifications on gears, sprockets, pulleys etc. Any order placed which includes machining options is unlikely to be processed until mid December.
The Tamiya 70167 single gearbox is essentially half of the Tamiya 70168 double gearbox shown above. The kit can be built with gear ratios of 12.7:1, 38:1, 115:1, and 344:1. There are two possible output axle locations, which are illustrated on the packaging (for any given gear ratio, only one output location is possible).
The output shaft is a 3 mm hexagonal axle that is 10 cm from tip to tip. The axle works with any of the four Tamiya wheels giving you many options for final speed on the ground. The low-voltage motor runs on 3-6 volts and draws up to a few amps. Motor overheating can be caused by excessive stalling, even at very low voltages. We recommend that you use stall-detection sensors or otherwise ensure that the motor doesn't stall for more than a few seconds at a time.
(Note: This gearbox uses the 18100 motor variant)
See 'Which Wheel' tab for suitable wheels type HEX for a tight fit.
