West Coast Drive Bearing Blocks (4 choices)

In recent years, the "West Coast Drive" (WCD) has exploded in popularity among FIRST ® Robotics Competition teams. With their cantilevered wheels and direct-driven axles, teams using this iconic drivetrain style have risen to the top of the competition with remarkable success; however, the precision machining capabilities necessary can cause reluctance among some teams.

VEXpro and West Coast Products (WCP) have teamed up to solve this problem. The VersaBlock easily bolts on to the outside of the pre-drilled VersaChassis tubing - no precision machining needed to achieve a precision aligned drivetrain.

For users who prefer the traditional “milled slot” approach, the 2-piece WCP Side Bearing Block provides a lightweight and compact solution. The 1-piece WCP Gearbox Bearing Block is a similar version, intended to be used directly with WCP WCD-configured gearboxes.

When paired with the WCP Cam to ensure proper tensioning, all teams now have access to a complete, high-performance, "West Coast"-style Drive.
