A huge problem, you all will recognize, is that the Link Treads terribly lack in grip. I have built a rather heavy NXT model and running the motor will cause the treads to slip. One solution is to gear the model down or reduce the motor speed, but that's not really a solution.
Wouldn't it be great if the new Treads were made out of rubber or have a seperate a rubber part to put on the Tread (there are two holes).
Does anyone know another solution for this problem? Maybe there are some custom parts to fit to the Tread or something.
I have been thinking about using pieces of Ducked Tape to increase the grip, but they will wear down and it will look terrible. Maybe it's an option to apply a rubbery type of glue to each of the links or using the Double Rubber Flexible Connector in some way.
