hole on equal distances on both pieces of wood to hold the front axle of the track and wheels. I attached two smaller wheels to the bottom pieces of wood using the partially threaded screws included in the track and wheel set.
Step 3 Motors and gearbox
I used the twin motor and gear box from tamiya. I am not going to explain construction, because if you buy it there isinstructions included. Be sure that you assemble it as the c type or the low speed type. The c type has a gear ratio of 203:1 as opposed to the a and b types which have a gear ratio of 58:1. The c type is the only one with enough torquefor our purposes. If you are using a different gear box, assemble it with the highest gear ratio you can. when attachingto the chassis, line up the shafts with the end of the chassis, and screw it on.note: One of the motors the gear box came with did not work. it would begin to stain and move very slowly after moving for a few minutes. I replaced it with a geared motor I got from radio shack for much better results.
Step 4 Building the H bridge.
that enables a voltage to be applied across a load in either direction. Thesecircuits are often used in
and other applications to allow DC motors to run forwards and backwards. H bridges are available as
, or can be built from
