rockheadsguy, Dremel makes a good countersink bit for their rotary tool. The carbon may make it dull after a few times, but it will work very well if you use a screw to test for flush after each pass...
Jim, thanks for the tip. I'm still a little surprised that the chassis would show up with a countersink missing, but it was an easy fix and I can't tell the difference between the one I made and the factory screw holes...

Brian, no problem, anytime. I've made holes for personal transponder mounts and all kinds of stuff on cars over the years, works like a charm.

I'm still wondering what it would be like trying to drive a car with toe out in back though?...."loose"...Jim

Me too. I have tried everything and I just can't get the spool to stay locked!!! It's soooo frustrating.

I was hoping someone might make an actual spool with screws to lock the pulley onto instead of using the 'diff style' setup.

Brant,

Geeze you stay up late. Must be the inventor within you.

Will be at the Revo Race at Ripon starting later today. Everyone local shows up to this puppy. Probably won't get home until 1 AMish myself.

The block spacers should give you plenty of room to play with that aspect of the car.

Bill

Last time I saw Todd, he said the spool setup was still in development.

Otherwise, I REALLY like the two test pads he let me have. Didn't have any trouble with the old XXX-S sandpaper pads either.

Seeing you don't have any trouble with the XXXS pad, I think you should give me the ones that Todd gave you , (a true friend would )
