We introduced the Rhino Track Drive in late 2015, and it's been storming competition fields ever since. Once carpets have been tamed, what's left? The great outdoors! This version of the Rhino has been modified from the standard version to handle the rigors of outdoor driving, returning this Rhino to its natural habitat. This drive-base builds off of two Rhino Track Drive Modules (am-3322).
What's different from the standard Rhino?
The standard Rhino plates' lightening holes have been removed. This helps keep out debris and provides additional accessory mounting points.
The drive motors and gearbox have been relocated to sit higher, improving ground clearance.
#35 chain replaces belt between the Toughbox output shaft and the track pulley, which has more tolerance for debris and can be repaired more easily in the field. (Even in the middle of nowhere, most hardware stores still stock #35 chain or links!)
This module does not include electronics or motors

The Rhino Track Drive is a tank track module utilizing a two (2) inch wide timing belt tread. Four (4) robust molded pulleys direct the path of a high grip belt, driven by an optional AndyMark gearbox or transmission. The Rhino Track Drive features rigid, 3/16 inch thick aluminum plates and an easily adjustable belt tension mechanism.
This is an ambidextrous module, so it can be used for the left or right side just by switching the plates from one side to the other. Once mounting it to cross braces like REV Extrusion, not included, or another Chassis, you can choose to make countersink holes on the appropriate sides.
The Rhino Track Drive Module ships in an un-assembled kit. Please see the assembly instructions on the "Files and Documents" tab for any assembly assistance.
NOT INCLUDED: A gearbox, such as the Toughbox Mini, as shown in the layout print and example pictures. Bumper brackets (am-3358) are available, but not included.
This module includes one belt. In order to create a typical drive system for most applications, two modules will need to be purchased. We suggest the use of four (4) pieces of 1" wide REV extrusion as bracing structure between two Rhino Track Drive Modules. Pictures of this setup version are shown on the "How To / Pictures" tab.
