laser cut tracked chassis for Tamiya 70097 motor/gearbox

IMG_1078.jpgIMG_1079.jpgIMG_1082.jpgWell, I got busy tonight and finished up my new tracked robot design! I've been wanting to do this for awhile and finally got around to designing and lasering it out tonight.

 Uses a Tamiya 70097 twin motor/gearbox, Tamiya 70100 track and wheel set and the chassis has built in provisions for either setting it up as a 58:1 or 203:1 ratio on the gearbox.

Parallax Ping is mounted and working.  Strangely, I didn't take any pics with the batteries mounted... I guess that'll have to wait for the video.

Chassis is solid as a rock and has an internal bay for gear, batteries, breadboard etc.

This one took some design effort, but I think it was worth it :-)

Thanx Dan

Wow that's really fantastic and professional looking! Uff looks like i'm the only person on earth that doesn't have access to a laser cutter :(

You could add a picture of only the chassis without tracks and electronics..Or the single pieces.. That would be awsome!

I just purchased one of those tracks and motorbox myself, i'll be happy if i can make a chassis half that cool :)

Good idea, I'll add the pics of the chassis by itself.

Now that is cool!!
Thanks Fritsl

Dude you should totally come up with some prices and sell these!  Your chassis designs are better than most of the ones I've seen for sale online.  Maybe to start out you could do a small run of like 20 of em and see if people here will order them.  I would... 


I'm intereseted too, depending on the price, of course :)

same here!


Thanx for the votes gents -

 Well, I think $15 for the roundbot chassis and $20 for the track chassis is about right.

How much uncluding UK delivery?
