Foam wheels are the preferred choice for combat robots because they absorb impacts and save your drive motors from stripping teeth!
Combine with our Snap Wheels, or if you already have Lite Flites (or their thinner counterpart Lectra Lites) they can be used with Snap Hubs too!
With Snap Hubs, you can easily and securely mount these foam tires to your robot.

Specifications:
- Anodized 6061 aluminum for high strength and low weight.
- The foam tire is held tightly by a custom washer, and features a recess to prevent the 7/16" snap ring from coming off unintentionally.
- The hub is secured to the motor shaft by a strong 8-32 setscrew.
- Available with 3mm and 4mm shaft bore, but can be drilled out as big as 6.35mm (0.25in).
- Thin size (0.50in wide) weighs 6g each. Wide size (0.75in wide) weighs 7g each.  (Remember that you will be removing the 3g plastic hubs from Lite Flites and Lectra Lites first!)



Requires:
- 5/64" hex wrench
- Snap ring pliers
- foam wheels (Snap Wheels, Lite Flites or Lectra Lites)

Great New Hubs

- 06th January 2016

These hubs are an elegant, robust solution to mounting lite flite wheels onto a motor. These hubs can take some hits and are also simple and easy to install.

I would recommend purchasing the retaining ring pliers because most hardware stores will not have pliers that are small enough to work with these retaining rings.

They cost a little extra, but they are worth the splurge.


METAL=BETTER

- 08th August 2013

Plastic wheels have been the death of my robots countless times! Shattered wheels, stripped wheels. All terrible ways to lose a match.

Metal hubs + plastic wheels X Big hits = Broken wheels

These hubs not only use an attractive red, but they use the lightest wheels on the market that absorb the shock from big hits! No more broken wheels! Now it's time to fear my robot!
