well technically I didn't snap it, I kinda split it down the middle. Now when you twist the ends it feels like it's made out of rubber.

Thanks for the tip guys..... but before I make the modification. I need confirmation on the reaction of the front tyres after making the spool i.e. front gearbox assemby locked all the time. With such information I can check either I had made the spool the right way or not. Regard.

with a spool you should have no diff action at all. you should be able to hold one front tire and not be able to spin the other

Matt I ran with you in mod at LugNut a few years back. I was running a Schumacher back then. You had the new FSR and I think one other car but can't remember it. You had some fast stuff on that little track. I actually had a blast running their.

Those bean bag rails would send you flying sometimes if you caught them just right. For a tiny place I had a great time their. Well except for my drive from Harrisburg.

Matt you should have good luck with the Tobee shaft. It is really nice and light.

Oh I'm Brian Reigle by the way. I ran those purple bodies with hot pink and white flames.

Randman I just finished putting on those parts. They are super nice. Those axles are so damn light its scary. All four of them don't weigh as much as one streel one. I shaved a ton off my spinning weight. Who made those axles? I also like those Tobee dog bones as well. Tobee seems to have nothing but cool stuff and great quality.

I really liked your FSR. I actually bought one a few months later but never got to run it at LugNut. I did run it alot at RCO on their carpet. Now RCO has indoor asphalt which is to my liking. I like asphalt best of all unless old LugNut would be open. For some reason that is the only carpet track I liked and I don't actually no why. I think mainly because it was fairly easy on tires and you could only go so fast so I didn't need 7 turns to go quick. Also the guys were all nice and I had fun hanging out with all of you. You mad my a$$ work hard to keep up but all that work was worth it. It made me better.

They didn't run Ozite, it was some low shag carpet they got but it worked pretty good. I think I liked it because it was before we were running purples and plaids. Double blues up front and blues in the rear was the ticket. Also, getting those 2000's to last 5 minutes was fun for me, you actually had to be careful on the throttle to last

Yea that 5 minutes on a 2000 pack was hard. I tried that 1/2 throttle stuff by over gearing but only squeeze it when you needed to get by. Man that took alot of patience. The hook and loop carpet was wild if you were tyring to trim your car radio. It would go all over depending which way you ran on the track.

I think I ran Jaco Reds in the front and blue rears on my car. What a combination!!!!

The axles are Square Titanium, I ordered them from RainbowTen, unfortunately they arent cheap, but man, if you break them, you need to start a new hobby, collecting beanie babies would work, lol

Randman your right. If I break those things I think I need a new hobby as well. I was thinking more like a Pez collection.
