nikko/radio shack rcs,rear axles
« on: August 20, 2010, 23:08:05 »
Hello,new guy.I've recently rediscovered rc's.got tired of slot cars going off track.I have a problem.is there an easy way to remove the rear wheels
from the gear assy.There is an aluminum rod with like a thicker peice welded on.that hold the wheels on.I want to replace the 380 motors
and maybe wheels.

Thanx

-Depending on what you have, just use a hammer, & a nail set/tap, & set it on its side, (leave room for the axle to shoot out the other side).  Be sure to hold it together, & watch the order the internals mount on the rod, it goes all the way through the diff., etc.
-if you want to be able to remove the tires/wheels, (anytime),  you should be able to tap an all-thread rod straight through, even as you're removing the stk. axle rod, then put on 2 locknuts, & set it aside & take a breather :)
