Are the different sizes the same hub design? Between these wheels and Steve's cheap controllers, its getting redonkulously easy to build a quality featherweight on the cheap Smile

Perhaps there should be a special prize at the QLD national event for the "Best bang for the Buck" bot. Laughing

I think between myself and BotBitz we can probably come up with a few money saving products Smile

When they come in I'll send a couple to Marto or Glen so they can show them on vid

Wheels came in today, boxes and boxes of them...

I've arranged to send some to glen for review (and so he has the dimensions to make you all hubs!)

I'll ship them express to him on Monday, so he should get them Tuesday!

They seem ok to me, but wait for Glens opinion!
Expect to hear from him next!

The bigger versions i think aren't much use cause the center part is too thin to bore out for a hub, but the smaller 90mm versions look really similar to a colson, the tread is just super hard on these particular ones.

If they could be had in a much softer tread they'd be perfect Smile

The sample I got was a hard rubber which I saw as perfect, but the actual units I got were a made from plastic? I'm not 100% sure, but an extremely hard compound with a little give, but not good for traction.
