Next Shipping Day 3rd December
We are now in the process of moving Technobots 120 miles North to the Town of Rugby. You can still place orders on-line as normal but they will not be dispatched until after we re-open on the 3rd December
Our machine shop is also being re-located so 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.
