try putting the battery pack in the tray first, then installing the tray-n-battery in the car.. The tray is/acts as an alignment tool when installing.. As long as your batter bars dont over hang the sides of the tray it should go smoothly..

Has anyone tried freezing the drive pin and warming up the bearing to fit them (shrinks the pin and expands the bearing)?

Explanation:
This is what you do to real bearing when installing on to real motors. It ensures the inner race is fitted to the shaft instead of spinning on the shaft and wearing it.

It's just a thought, then you wouldn't have to do any grinding

I found this out the hard way. Getting what was left of the bearing off the pin was loads of fun too.

PookyT, I got the new brackets on Friday, great stuff. Thank you!

Just got done assembling my 1 way and getting it in the car. Those O-Rings are a bitch to get in, took almost 20 mins to get them seated, then when I installed the 1 way in the car it was very bound up from the pressure on the bearing I'd imagine. I took the outdrives back off and took out the spacer behind the bearing holding the outdrive from slipping out. Before installing the outdrive again I used the tip of an x-acto to roughen up the material on the outdrive that makes contact with the bearing. Installed everything again and it works great now, no bind. The o-ring also just falls into place this way.
