RC chassis modding
the RC chassis is very slow. learn why and how to amp up its speed and handling
About this creation
The main problem the RC chassis has is that the front axles just dont want to spin. this is because over time the axle wears out. to fix it, you have to use wheels with a hole in the middle and not the ones with crosses because you want it to the touch or move the axle as less as possible.



here are the pieces needed

follow steps to greatly reduce the friction in the front wheels:



slide the half bearing thing on the axle

then push the rim into the tire

next, slide the wheel into the axle

finally, slide in the gear and then you are done.

This works great! I had to use different wheels, got no idea how it's poosible but my axels seem to be a bit shorter then yours! But no problem, it works and that's all that matters. Thanks.

Quoting Dylan Denton cool! I'll definitely try this on my next R/C! Also, you should do what I did and open up the chassis to unscrew the front bumper. It makes it much easier to build without it being in the way. ;D
sure ill do that and maybe build a porshe. that would be seriously cool

Nice! I'd like to know what set I can get those new tires from, since mine are the old ones.
