        Well tragedy came to see me monday ...lol the new 12mm bearing holder lol ..searched three days for this part ..turns 4wd fronts to shaft ...on 2wd ...needed something to make the fronts turn true ..they had wobbled lol ...the trick i did first was press a 5 x11 bearing with .30 styreen wraped on the out side ...yea it worked added some shims and bushings and i was set ..f..first run lost a wheel ..lol the screw unscrewed itself and well you know ...i found the wheel ..went home put my spacers back ....a....all the while ..im waiting on these adapters to come in ...so i thread lock the one side ...2 weeks later ..the parts come in ...i start the tear down of wheels smh 10 little 1.5 screws smh ..t..then to the nut and the danm thing snaps ...smfh ...so my little rig failed lol ...so i build something else ..pic 1 ..youll see the spindles and two shafts ..lol see the short one ..that was when tragidy came lol ...thos shafts are from a hpi rs4 pro 1....lol made it happen drilled out the spindels and they got pressed in ...the black pieces you see in the spindels are cut axels from a ofna ...threaded insides ...so i found the size went to the hard ware store ..t..they had some but not hardended steel that was 30 mm long so i got two 20s to mock up smh they are exactly 5mm in diameter luck is with me ...so thats that lil update

                      Now once i receive the longer bolts imma be good im thinking im gonna need 40 or 45 mm looking at that last pic imma need 10 mm just in spacers i might cut some more 1/8axels to make spacers ...btw do any one know the name of the pice of sleeve that goes between bearings on wheels ..i know some rc cars have them and i know skateboards have them ..t..thiere in place so you can tighten the fastner to a dead stop with out the bearings and wheel binding under the squeeze
