You can borrow my spool to see if you like it. If you like it you can use it till yours arrives.

i am still a new drive, but I like the way the spool handles. It help me learn the lines on the corners and help me keep my speed around the turns. If i don't control my speed, you just spin out. So I have been using it as a learning aid.

Yes..definately get the Spring steel axles/hex hubs. they will last forever.

I'm having trouble trying to remove the stock wheel hubs, maybe the spring steel version is the way to go.

How come I can never find anyone selling a used evo 2? I've looked everywhere and I rarely find one.

Yes the spring steel hubs are the way to go..they will last forever.

To remove the aluminum one...you'll need to disassemble the hub and place it on some support blocks or vice. but don't lock down on the wheel hub. should be free to move. now take a hammer and "gently" tap on the end of the CVD bones until the hub is out.

good luck.

Usually they are snatched up quickly or by word of mouth.

I know someone who is selling one.

If the hub does not pass through the bearings with 'lite' taps, you will have to file the part that is preventing removal. Too much tapping will damage the bearing races.

I've heard that is what I would have to do.

Actually the aluminum is so soft the it will break into small pieces before it damages the bearing races. if you do..you can get Blue high speed sealed bearing from Teambluestar.. there contact info can be found on ebay. the bearing cost about $1.60 each..I think shipping is free. I bought the complete set for the Xray..
the smoothest bearing I've every used...now I have them too on my Pro3 and TC3.

I wish that was true, I luckily had an additional pair of Blue sealed bearings. I had damaged two bearings. In the end I knew my SS hubs where on the way and so I grabbed the Alu hub with pliers and crushed them to free the hub and save my new bearings. One day on carpet and I end up scrapping Alu hubs.
