The Stability Conversion Kit for Balboa consists of a chassis segment that clips onto the end of the Balboa chassis to extend it, a 1″-diameter plastic ball, three plastic rollers, and a ball castor retention clip that holds the ball and rollers in place:
With the ball castor included, this piece can be used to provide the Balboa chassis with a smooth third point of contact for traditional differential-drive applications. For balancing applications, this accessory can be used without the ball castor to make the chassis taller and to provide additional mounting points where you can attach things like sensors or the bumper cage kit.
The parts for this kit are already included in the Balboa Chassis with Stability Conversion Kit, so we are primarily making it available separately for those who want to convert their Balboa 32U4 Balancing Robots into traditional, differential-drive robots. The following diagram shows the possible chassis angles for such robots with four different wheel sizes ranging from 60 mm through 90 mm:
