With this accessory kit, you can convert your balancing Balboa chassis into a traditional differential-drive platform with a low-friction ball caster providing a stabilizing third point of contact. The included ball caster pieces are held in place by a removable retention clip, and the whole assembly conveniently snaps onto the front/top edge of the Balboa chassis. This kit is also useful in balancing applications, where the ball caster can be left off and the extension piece can be used to make the Balboa taller and give it more mounting points. This parts for this kit are already included in the Balboa Chassis with Stability Conversion Kit.

This kit gives you the structural pieces you need to build your own Balboa chassis with stability conversion. The chassis includes an integrated battery holder that can be configured for 4 or 6 AA cells. Two configurable gearboxes further increase the gear ratio from the required micro metal gearmotors while supporting the weight of the robot with ball bearings rather than the gearmotor shafts themselves. The chassis works with a variety of wheel sizes and micro metal gearmotors, so wheels and motors are not included; choose your own wheels and motors to personalize your robot.

Unlike the Balboa 32U4 Balancing Robot Kit, no electronics are included: this chassis is for those who want to supply their own custom electronics.

These black plastic wheels press-fit onto the 3mm D shafts on many of our motors, including our micro metal gearmotors and our mini plastic gearmotors, to make a nice drive solution for small robots. The wheels have silicone tires and measure 80 mm (3.15″) in diameter. Six additional mounting holes for 4-40 screws make it possible to use the wheel with several of our universal mounting hubs. The wheels are sold in pairs.
