Hi Simon, I just fully rebuilt my car, only finished a few minutes ago, And I didn't have a problem with my center shaft, Did you use loctite or any kind of thread locker ?? and there is no chance glue or something got in there ?? You could try acetone of kerosene or something that may work its way in the tread and loosen it up, Heating it up may work, and the last LAST resort is to attack with a dremel. Sometimes you can drill out the center of a grub screw and they will let go. I'd be trying some liquid first tho, Heat and dremel should be at the end of the list.

Tried a few things like that. I didn't use thread lock or anything like that so I'm pretty annoyed. Ahh well.... will try a few more things tomorrow.

Interesting how they tried out a carbon plate on the 415MSX ala HB Cyclone.

BTW - Are they yellow driveshafts on the front of the 415MSX that kentech posted??

Also... whats the advantage to running a more narrow bumper (Like the one on Satoshi's 415MSX made by Square that kentech posted) as opposed to the kit bumper??

Yes they are yellow shafts that were a touch larger diameter than standard.

There are shock shafts floating around that look similar also. As for the carbon center plate, there is also a different top deck that is wider. At Reedy all of the cars used the alum center deck and 1 or 2 used the wider top plate.

To add to what Dan said, there are what I think are titanium something or another suspension shafts...so I wouldn't be suprised if those universal shafts are made from the same material.

Yup...they have a yellowish tint to them. But then again, you can quickly change the color of many metallic items with a can of pearlescent spray paint

One of mine just broke on the 5th run with the spool and I need to replace it. I don't think that should have happened, so I must have done something wrong.

But........ the car is awesome with it. Very happy with this spool
simon, grease the spool well!! i will just try the "spin grease" this weekend with our spool (thanks eirik!)... hope the blades will last longer.

by the way, we just made a new carbon part...

odawg if I could tell you I would also have a lettery ticket with some nice numbers on it.

No word is out yet with the car in testing still from Japan and a few US drivers. Past that wish I had more to tell.
