What adapter do i need to attach 2WD gearbox to robot car?


Hey everyone,

Im trying to find a way to attach gearboxes like this



to a contraption like this


The problems i am facing are this...

The gearboxes have some type of cup as the output, where a dogbone would fit into. I need couple its output shaft directly to RC hex wheels. Or even if i cant do that, I would need to convert this cup to an axle that has a flat side, then i use widely available shaft adapters (with a grub screw) and secure it to the shaft, and then add an RC wheel to the end.

The second problem is...how do i bolt this 2WD transmission to the robot chassis? These types of transmisisons are designed for specific rc vehicles. Are there such things as generic transmissions that are easier to bolt on?

Thanks in advance for any insights that can be provided!
