I also have problems with finding 210 drive sprockets, so I am trying to get a timing belt solution that is bomb proof with minimized noise. Will stick to 35# until it fails though. That will be shortly I think, since I got new fresh batteries ready for action
There are "cheap" solutions for the CC hv160 at ebay too, if you can't get it anywhere else. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Castle-Creation ... 5ae7154b04
That price is hard to beat I think, not that I have a clue what others want, just a guess.
I am using a 25# chain in my first stage, a 35# chain must then be bomb proof with that motor, my bad
^-- sprocket heaven
Not sure if it'd be economical for you to order from the USA tho..

For overseas items/multiple items, these guys are cheap, but I have never used them: http://www.surpluscentre.com and http://www.technobotsonline.com
Good luck with the build, keen to see how it is going.
Neither. You need #219 specific sprockets. #219 is 0.306" (7.8mm) pitch.sn0wchyld wrote:also, is 6.35mm pitch cogs the right stuff for 219 chain? or is it 8mm?

I'm thinking I'll use one or two of the 63-74's instead at some point

I think you'll find that the higher kVs and the lighter copper mass inside the 63mm motors will make them a pain to use in this application. I believe the 80mm outrunner motors are the perfect size for this...
