Our machine shop has also been re-located as part of the business move to Rugby, we anticipate the machines will be operational around mid December. Orders placed which include custom bore sizes and tapped holes will be processed as soon as the machines are spinning again.
The high-speed gearbox can be assembled in 11.6:1 and 18:1 gear ratios. The high-efficiency gearbox is therefore suited for very fast vehicles or other fast mechanisms that do not require high torque.
The motor is rated for 3 volts but will typically work fine up to 6 volts. When using this product with the dual serial motor controller (or any motor driver based on an H-bridge), keep in mind that up to a few volts (depending on the load) are lost on the transistors of the H-bridge, so that a 4.5 volt battery delivers about 3 volts to the motors, giving them a reasonable amount of power. Motor overheating can be caused by excessive stalling, even at very low voltages. We recommend that you use stall-detection sensors, or just watch your robot, to make sure that it doesn't stall for more than a few seconds at a time.
The 4mm, round output shaft is compatible only with Tamiya's sports and narrow tyre set. See 'Which Wheel' tab for suitable wheels type 4P for a tight fit.
(Note: This gearbox uses the RE-260RA-2295 motor variant)
