Where are some good online stores to buy sprockets, gears, etc. from? In small and large sizes.

Silent (veryquietatbest) drive system for robots?

Hi folks, i'm looking for a silent or quiet drive system for my robot.

It is just a wheeled device at the moment.

I'v ordered a tamiya track and wheel set which won't arrive for a few days, and

i was wondering if anyone could tell me how quiet it is without the motors,  ie does it squeak and rattle etc.

 

i'm pretty sure the tamiya motors i'v ordered with it will make some noise as they are geared down.

 

researching this site i came across Gareth's first robot (initially mistaken for spam :)
