  • I love this chassis. It’s an awesome mix of quality and price. The motors are much quieter than the other toy chassis I bought years ago.

    The one problem I had was mounting the wheels on the motors. The fit was soooo tight (yes, I lubed it as instructed) that I think I ended up bending the shaft the wheels are mounted on. As a result, my robot has a bit of a hitch in his giddyup.. They were such a pain to put them on I don’t know if I’ll be able to ever get them off to replace them without destroying the whole thing.

    Other than that it’s a good kit for the money.

  • SPARC still deserves bad press from this. What a waste of time and money.
    Glad to hear you all made it out alright without too much pain Nate! You’ll always have my electro-widget dollars. : )

  • Interestingly, NIST’s Atomic clock is based in Boulder, CO, practically right next door to SparkFun.

  • Fight it guys. Any of you with blogs need to get this out there. In trying to frivolously protect their brand, Sparc will just get a million hardware hackers hating their brand instead.
    Lots of those people have day jobs that may involve Sun software or hardware purchases…
    Bored attorneys run amok. Downsize those ones first Sun!
    SF should counter sue for damages. These guy’s are wasting sparkfun’s time and money.

  • Yeah, I’d love to see this thing in action. I can’t find videos of it anywhere.

No public wish lists :(
