The all-terrain wheel adapters have been pushed to the limit and wow do they perform! The adapters vastly extend the capabilities of a direct drive board.
Why get the adapters?
Well, if you don't like off-roading you probably won't need them. But if you're anything like me, you won't know what you did without them.
The direct drive motors, in comparison to belt drive motors, have less maintenance requirements, project less noise, produce a higher range, and NOW are compatible with all-terrain wheels. So if those features are a priority to you, the direct drive motors may be the best choice for you.
