This upgrade kit provides two types of add-on links designed to increase the functionality of the VEX Tank Tread Kit. The first set of add-on links includes a patch of soft rubber designed to increase the traction of the tank treads on smooth surfaces. The second set of add-on links includes a variety of fins, for use in constructing conveyor belt type mechanisms. These upgrade links should be useful to designers wishing to create more advanced mechanisms utilizing the tank tread.
Picture shows an example of how this kit can be used. Balls not included.
The service and speed on our order was great. We received our order JIT for our competition. Thanks!
Ordered for the 2010-2011 VEX Robotics competition for my sons middle school robotics team. Items were in stock and was delivered quick. Very helpfull. The grey rubber "extention paddles" are a bit more flexible than expected. Especially the largest ones. Not reliable for strength, assuming you want to move anything other than a plastic ball.
