What can I make with this kit?
Perfect for group activities to introduce mechanics you can build ten tracked vehicles with this pack (product code ROBLAB10). Nothing will get in your way as they allow you to go over obstacles rather than round them and show the advantages of tracks over wheels. Perfect for any tank lovers out there the kits are fun to make and watch and each vehicle can be made from 28 pieces. Each car requires two AA batteries (not included, see our range here) and is fun for anyone aged 11 or over with adult supervision.

What can I learn?
Tracks spread the pressure from a vehicle over a larger area making them perfect for soft and shifting ground such as loose soil, shale and sand. Tracks give good grip and traction for vehicles and allow tanks and diggers to get over large obstacles that would be impassable with wheels. However tracks have poor turning circles and generally lower speed than wheels. Compare both and see what other advantages and disadvantages you can find.

Where can I go from here?
Create new and unique vehicles and design bodies to protect the components and look amazing. Use with your Arduino or Raspberry Pi board (not included) and create all sorts of robotic projects, use your imagination and see what you can design.

Looks like one motor to both tracks, so it can only go forward and back, no turning Is that correct ?
