I have full intention to do just that. Was not into it at first and bought it because dldiaz had thrown me an offer I just couldn't refuse but checking it out with the home brew wheelie bar and just the wierd factor figured in I think I can do something decent with it.

Got so excited, I threw the bling trans in there within five minutes, just to find out it doesn't fit. :( The PO had widened the holes in the chassis by 1mm out and I had not noticed. Just need to come up with a plan now.

Is it possible to flip the bearings so the flange is on the outside? It would narrow the trans.

The bearing flange is about .9mm, so it would get it close. But although the bearings are tight in there, I wouldn't trust friction to keep them there in the long run. I am not against the idea of a threaded hole next to the bearing with a screw head to hold it in place though. I will see if flipping them leaves enough play for all to run smooth.

You could use a collar on the axle to keep the bearing in place.

I got quite a haul today. Very happy to have the Trinity hubs. Big thanks to LosiXXkid for sending them.

Also very happy to have the UNO motor. I've wanted one of these since I was 12.

For the past two months, I've been in talks with a company overseas to brand some items for me. Well, first load arrived.

I guess I better get off my rear end and get to packaging and put on my salesman hat...

The birth of JK Racing (rc products)....That is not the name of the tires :(

I showed them that as a sample of what I was asking for, the 'official' name of the tire will be King Cobra.

A Cossie body from the UK for my Viper, a Trackmaster direct drive for my Ascot, and a couple of BRP 1:18 cars with loads of parts, because 12th scale stuff was feeling too roomy. :D

It's almost worth shipping with oversized boxes just to see how beat up 💥 the package will be.

Took 6 weeks for an order from RcMart to arrive...got to US customs fast, then sat there for two weeks...then went back and forth from Chicago to St. Louis over and over...finally filed a claim...this was a $750 order....after the claim was filed and they found it...I got it 3 days from claim...box was destroyed!...luckily the two Sukera touring cars inside were fine...but it's still BS!
