Red Gears


#1

In the Turning Point game reveal video, the clawbots seem to have red high-strength gears. Are these publicly available, or not, or am I just seeing things?

I think they are old, discontinued gears. I could be wrong, but I don’t think Vex sells them anymore. However, you may be able to find some on Amazon or a similar shopping service.


#3

Those red gears come along with the V5 Classroom Starter kit, but they are currently unavailable until further notice as they are out of stock.


#4

This is similar to our situation with wheels transitioning over to a High Strength bore. Eventually, all our gears / sprockets will transition over to red. However, we must first exhaust all of our existing inventory of green.

Until that time comes, the red gears & sprockets will only be available in V5 Kits.


#5

Just wondering, is there a reason that you want to change the color of the gears? Is it just for a change of pace or is there a fundamental difference between the two?


#6

Probably for branding and color scheme consistency.
