Closer look at the Treads and Sprockets Pack
I ordered the Treads and Sprockets Pack from LEGO Education a few days ago, and it just arrived today. I was quite surprised to see how many pieces came with the pack - there's a lot! As you can see in the picture above, there's enough to make four good-sized sets, which is probably more than I'll ever use. As you can see in the picture on the left, I put all the links together and strung them out in one long chain... it's really long! The NXT Brick is used for scale.
My only dissapointment with this pack is the fact that it only includes the small sprockets and none of the bigger, yellow, ones. I don't have any of those and they would probably come in handy. But overall, I think this is a great deal for only $12.00 (minus shipping) - it includes 10 small sprockets and 100 tread links.
Yes, that's what I meant.

Lol, well in case anyone is confused, I got 1 PRODUCT, which had enough pieces to make 4 TREADS (you know, the circular belt-like thingies you put on robots to give them good traction? :P).
For the posts above - originally it did say 4 robots ;) No harm done.
But it seems that once you rubberize these little guys they have good trackion.
with this new low price on them it is possible now to build a mono rail system with them, should be very cool and other amusement like rides.
I have a bottle of it just have yet to do it.

Christian, I'm not sure if you can, but Matthias will probably know.
