Default Middle Shaft Steel

What might caused a groove underneath the bearings on the middle shaft steel (#802161) ? As far as maintenance goes, the bearings are in good condition.

It came to a point where one of the bearings got stucked on it, the only way to get the bearing off was to smoothen the groove using a dremel tool, the middle shaft was then salvaged.

Heat and friction !

Before assembly, rub some oil on the shaft where the bearings will be rolling. That would reduce the chances of the bearing scouring the shaft.

Hopefully somebody can explain.

I just just been ordering some goodies and I noticed there is a servo spring black for the 950, perhaps this is a similar spring put in the wrong kit?

Blimey! That was quick work!

You sure you didn't use another just to show an asembled car?

Still working on the setup, though - after one o'clock here Clouds still looking heavy and I've got a lot of tweaking work to do - and charge my batteries.

Well, sacrifice the rabbits. You might just buy enough time to do the set-up!

Phew! finished - well, I'll have a look down to the track to see if it is at all driveable - i.e. not too many leaves on the circuit!

Hey Mark, it looks like there are some bugs with that photoshop filter !

1. No fuel tubing? How does one expect to start the engine?

2. Pipe looks like it did not get the full effect from the filter.

3. Shock tower ! It's not broken !

4. Rubber tires? You've got to be kidding me.
