Does anyone have any recommendations for deciding what to request? The catalog is quite daunting.

If the company is giving these out for free, it makes me wonder what the game for 2011 entails....

Does anybody know if this opportunity is open for Israeli (and in general non-North American) teams?

Re: Free Drive Belts - Bills Blog

Questions for those that ordered Gates products during pre-season last year...

What kind of limits are there for quantities of parts?
What about limits to the total value/cost of the order?

We ordered parts from Gates for our prototype this offseason. I'm not sure if there is a set limit for cost or quantity, but they reserve the right to not give you parts. We were given every item that we requested which included about 16 pulleys and 3 belts. My advice would just be to keep your orders within reason and not abuse the offer.

Hi All,

Gates will be honoring pre-season 2011 FRC orders up through December 15, 2010.

If you are stumped as to what parts to order, keep in mind Gates supplied 5mm PowerGrip GT2 belts and sprockets for the 2010 FRC. These components should work very well for the FRC 'bots, but the sprockets are made out of steel. If you want to use aluminum sprockets, (with lower load ratings than GT2) you should use 5mm PowerGrip HTD belts and sprockets. You can download drive design manuals at www.gates.com/drivedesign to determine part #s.

Fill out the attached form with your desired part #'s, and then email to ptpasupport@gates.com.

I ordered the 5mm HTD belts and aluminum sprockets. I was expecting to get sprockets that had the rims on them as the picture in the catalog showed. Instead, I received ones with no rims. I went through the catalog again to make sure I ordered the proper part number and did not see any mention of rim vs. rimless options. Did anyone else have a similar experience?
If you were able to get the ones with rims, please let me know how you did it.
