TC3, I used a pair of diagonal cutters, (dykes), to get that gear through the bearings. The first one took me a few but the second one went right through...hope this helps.

Super glue wont work, because it will dry too quick and gob up, use thin CA glue, you can get it at any hobby shop.

Super glue is CA, cyano acrylite or something like that, it's just thicker than that used for tyres. I used some stuff that is not quite as thin as proper tyres stuff but comes with a small brush as part of the lid, made the job easy and didn't get any bits of cotton stuck to the chassis. Being thicker than tyre CA it was also slightly easier to control.

There are really thin super glues, the problem is with regular super glue that you buy at a drug store, is it basically dries on contact, CA gives you a little more time to work, and also will wash off skin pretty easilly...

Default Web Special Owners

Hey web special owners, I have a spare PAL drivetrain for the web special. I need to use the driveshafts out of it, so it wont include them, so it's better suited to those who already have the web special with the PAL drivetrain, and just want a spare... PM me

Unless, you do it on purpose to take out a bunch of nose hair at once using only 1 finger.
