To give teams a head start, we identified several common upgrades on TileRunner's standard drive system. These upgrade kits cover a wide range of use cases, from high-speed maneuvering to moving heavy loads with ease and loads of grip and are used with the Original 6WD TileRunner (am-3437).
Usage: This kit is used to convert your existing Original 6WD TileRunner (am-3437) into the terrain crushing beast that is the TreadRunner!!!!!!
Note: If you have the TileRunner GTO kit (am-3437_gto) you will also need to replace your NeveRest 20 Orbitals with NeveRest Classis 40s (am-2964a) and add the PicoBox Duo (am-3448) so that the chassis can be configured with the rear mounted motors. The center pulley can't be the driver of the system as the belts don't wrap around far enough.
Here is the robust, powerful, unstoppable treaded drivetrain you are looking for! This robot drive chassis drives a pair of 2" wide timing belt treads to push, climb, and overcome obstacles in it's path. Like other standard TileRunners, it uses two PicoBox Duos along with sturdy aluminum sheet metal frame components.
You'll receive two Treads (am-3963) and the toothed drive pulleys (am-3967), to replace the Stealth Wheels, as well as all the spacers, tensioners and needed hardware. Included is also a tension shaft for each tread, which includes a roller, spacers, nut, and bolt.
High Performance Features: This version of the TileRunner retains the drop center performance boost by adding an idler pulley where the traditional center wheel goes. This way the TreadRunner turns on a dime and trucks in a straight line like no TileRunner kit before.
