If you are gonna build a robotics project, then you need to check out this guy, Black Gladiator. He is an agile tracked robot chassis, low noise, and easy to control, which could be a good partner for your any tank-liked robots. This tracked chassis employs high-strength aluminium alloy base with delicate appearance, higher stability and longer durability.

The track is made of engineering plastic that basically assured the good elasticity, excellent damping effect and large road grip of the product. What’ s more, it comes with two quality motors to provide high power and speed, which enables your DIY robot car to widely suit all kinds of road surfaces.

To explore more possibilities, you can use this tracked chassis with Arduino microcontrollers or add other electronic components on the base such as, IR sensor, ultrasonic sensor, camera, LED, display, WIFI module, etc. For Arduino fans and smart robot car lovers, this is a good choice for you!

Note: the tracked chassis is unassembled, you need to get it done by yourself.

“Black Gladiator”Tracked Chassis Installation tutorial

Step 1: Install the load-bearing wheel (first install the M4*50 long screw into the load-bearing wheel), and lock the other side with the M4 screw.

Step2: place the gasket on the bracket and insert the load-bearing wheel into the hole of the bracket; the other end is also fitted with a gasket, which is also locked with the M4 nut. Be careful not to screw the load-bearing wheel too tightly.

Step 3: Insert the motor into the bracket and tighten it with 3 M3*6 flat head screws.

Step 4:Install the drive wheel: firstly insert the coupling into the drive wheel, and at the other end, use the allen key to fit the M3*8 hex socket screw into the drive wheel and lock it with the coupling.

Step 5:Install the drive wheel on the motor and tighten with black screw; please note: the hole on the coupling must be aligned with the flat end of the motor shaft.

 Step 6: Remove the track first, remove the excess part of the track, and measure the required track length.

Embed the track pin into the track with a pair of pincers

Black Gladiator-Tracked Chassis

If you want a tracked chassis on a budget, the Black Gladiator is a good place to start.

You get a metal chassis, two motors, tracks and all the fittings necessary to assemble this little guy. There's enough room on top for an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, but you will need a suitable motor driver and a pair of 16650 batteries and you're good to go.

The design is simple, and it looks like it will cope with most hard surfaces as well as lawn and some sand. Be careful of sand and water because the motors are not sealed and won't take too much environmental abuse.

My only complaint is that one motor fouls the large holes at the front of the chassis, which is unfortunate but not the end of the world.

Everything is well made, and for the price it's pretty hard to beat.
