  • Banebots P60 Gearbox: 1.5
    Strong gearbox

  • 6V 100RPM Metal Gearmotor
    Great little motors.
    Review by Reg
    I have bought a few of these and they have stood up quite well. They are a bit on the noisy side compared to some of the other motors in the 25mm diameter size though.

  • Wild Thumper 6V DC Motor 75:1
    DC Motor
    Review by Alex
    Fairly typical for a DC motor with a voltage input and a ground, but paired with a motor controller or an h-bridge it's very easily reversible.

    What impressed me was the torque we got out of it, we even had to add weight in order to get proper traction. The gear ratio isn't something you can change, you're basically at 75:1 all the time, but for our purpose it worked out really well.

The P60 stock planetary gear boxes are compatible with all 5XX DC motors, including the 550. Unfortunately at this time we don't have any P60+550 kits, though you can purchase the gear box and motor separately.
