CIM-ile

The CIM-ile gives teams the ability to emulate the RPM and mounting pattern of the popular CIM motor using two smaller motors in a compact, lightweight package. The precision VEXpro gears and glass-filled nylon housing create a system that is “similar” to a CIM and can be used with any gearbox or drive where a CIM would be used.


  • Accepts RS-550 or RS-775 motors

  • Single spur reduction to minimize size and weight

  • Can be used anywhere a CIM would be used
