Hi,

In most well assorted electronics shops and where PC modders gets their stuff.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Male ones are called pin headers, molex refers to the female socket.

You buy a row of 40 and use a plier to snap them off at desired length!

1mm is not the standard header. Standard headers are 0.1 inches or 2.54 millimeter spacing.
