6th June: We’re waiting on FingerTech for more stock of larger foamies, due soon.
FingerTech Foam wheels
: a great choice for beetles because they absorb impacts and save your drive motors from stripping teeth. Metric sizes below. We’re stocking so you won’t have to order from Canada and pay international shipping and import taxes! For extra grip, try coating the tyres (optional: in a few layers of rubber cement and then) a few layers of liquid latex.

Repeat Gold Eco Hubs: A pair of gold anodised 6061-T6 aluminium hubs. They have two M4 grub screws for extra strength to hold on to the shaft! The end plate is attached with two M3 8mm screws. The front plate has 3mm holes for the option to attach a pulley to the inside of the hub. We stock them in 4mm bore for our 22mm motors & other 22/25mm motors and 6mm bore for Mega Sparks Repeat Max’s. CAD files: 4mm STEP6mm STEP.

FingerTech Twist Hubs: easily and securely mount foam tires to your robot. Made from anodized 6061 aluminium for high strength and low weight. The hub is secured to the motor shaft by a strong setscrew (included) – this requires a 2mm hex key. We stock them in 4mm bore for our 22mm motors & other 22/25mm motors and 6mm bore for Mega Sparks Repeat Max’s.  CAD files: 4mm STEP, 6mm STEP.

  1. Stuart

    These are brilliant – I’d read that some people drill the set screw out to a larger diameter, but as standard on a 4mm D shaft they held perfectly even without Loctite. They’re also really tough as took a direct hit on the hub and although it broke, the motor was fine. I would recommend to buy the twist hub key as it makes taking wheels on and off a lot easier.
