Editor's Notes

May 10, 2019:

As you may have already noticed, robotics can be an expensive pursuit, but we've aimed for a blend of both affordable and higher priced wheels here. On the relatively less expensive side, we think the Tamiya Track Set, Colson Performa, and Pololu 60 Millimeter are all fine options that also all happen to come from well regarded companies. There's also the Tamiya Tracked Vehicle Chassis, but it requires assembly, as does the Xiaor Geek 4WD; this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's important to note. More expensive, "fancier" options include the Unihobby 6-Inch and Pitsco Education Tetrix Max, which are Mecanum and omni-directional models, respectively. These types offer greater flexibility, as they can move laterally, and are quite eye-catching, to boot. Finally, we have decided to add the Eudax DIY Assortment for the true tinkerers. The durability is nothing to write home about, but it's budget-friendly and gives you plenty of parts to play with.
