FingerTech Twist Hubs and Wheels
£4.00 – £11.50
Foam wheels are a great choice for beetles because they absorb impacts and save your drive motors from stripping teeth. With Twist Hubs, you can easily and securely mount these foam tires to your robot by twisting, no dealing with circlips!
The hubs are made from anodized 6061 aluminium for high strength and low weight and have a 4mm bore to fit our 22mm motors or standard 25mm beetle motors! The hub is secured to the motor shaft by a strong setscrew (included) – this requires a 5/64″ hex key.
More info on the Fingertech website. We’re stocking so you won’t have to order from Canada and pay international shipping and import taxes! If you want extra grip, try coating the tyres in liquid latex.
