Well it has taken quite a while to get to this point, but I am finally ready to start taking orders. I have been working on the design of this project for about 1 year now. I wanted a product like this and couldn't find one. So I set out to make my own. Along the way I decided that if I wanted it, maybe other people would too. That really pushed me to design the best product I could and invest in developing the manufacturing process too. Hopefully others people like my design. I am currently setting up my own online store, and in conversations with 3 online robot part stores. But while that is happening if you would like to order some directly you can.

I am selling the tread at $40 a foot, or $2.50 per tread for the standard black rubber. For this price you get the steel pin reinforced rubber treads, inner and outer links and spring clips. You can order by the foot, or by the tread. Each tread will make 0.75" worth of track.

If you would like a custom colored track I will be selling that for $56 per foot, or $3.5 per tread. I can also make track with stainless steel roller chain hardware. Message me for custom pricing on that.

FInally if you are one of the first people to purchase my track and use it on a cool robot I want to give you the track for FREE. I want to say thank you for believing me in and helping me launch this product. If you buy the track and build a working project I will refund your money. In exchange for you sending me pictures and video that I can use for promotion, I will give you a 100% refund.

Awesome. I am working on one as well. But I figured I would offer these to the community ASAP and continue to work on getting my website and storefront up. It is way more fun to design and build things than market and sell them. Keep me in the loop and if if you send me some video and pictures I will refund you for the track.

Congrats! I've got a few other projects running at the moment but a tracked vehicle is in my future--I'll let you know!
