pic: 1213 GROVES HS / TARDEC DRIVE SYSTEM



This is a full layout of how we made our drive system. At the top there is a full assembly. This is bulletproof which has been our team’s motto all season. There are six plates, three are welded to the platform, and three are bolted the previous three. Plate #1 bolts to the motor. Plate #2 is welded and fits the trans housing. Plate #3 is fit to bezel the front rim of the trans. Plate #4 is welded is press fit for a bearing. Plate #5 is also welded and press fit for the bearing. Plate #6 is the hubcap and keeps the shaft in place. This is all done with no chains. The entire assembly has a weight of 8.2 pounds and can be removed with 4 bolts on the stock frame. The wheels are 4” and painted for the banner sensors. In low gear we have about 5-feet/sec. Please post questions or comments.

I love the compactness of this design it definately gives you lots of space to do other things.
