Hi dus ,

hi steve
can i ask which hexes did you order the ones in ian's link or the ones in mine
as the only problem you might have is the size of the shaft and the size of the center
of the hexes
also do you have any wheels for the 12mm hexes yet

hi steve
if i remember rightly the hex goes on the center of the shaft between the thread and the step on the shaft
this is the part you need the measurement for
also the you will need the pins from the rear axles
as the holes it the rear axles are thinner than the standard pins that are used by most rc cars
hope that helps

Hi steve
Wait until the ones in Ian's link turn up
That way you can see if they fit then if they don't order the lockable ones
You may end up using both as the shafts might be different sizes I can't remember
With out getting mine out the loft

Sorry, been busy and not been on.

Will look at mine later, you shouldn't need to lock them on, they run from the pins.

This Ian it's not about locking them on its about the size of the centre hole of the hex and the size of the axle shafts

One of our cars has the metal hex hubs and the other has the plastic hubs.
I just ran a file around the hex until it fitted nice on the wheel.
You shouldn't need to lock them with the grub screw and you can use the old pins no problem.

Hope that helps, let us know if you have any probs Steve, I'm sure me and dus can help.

Sorry, missed that post, bit ill at the moment...... erm, never had a prob with the axle going through the center hole.
Will get vernier out tomorrow and measure just incase.

Yeah man, or go to local model shop for bearings.
You might need to file the hubs a bit to fit onto some wheels though.

I have ordered some bits direct from Bycmo before in Spain and never had probs.

One thing was just thinking about is do you have the uprated white cogs or are they black?

Hi both , I've uploaded a few pics but if you look at the hex in the pic the hole is way to big for the front axle which Is causing the wheel to scrub the wishbone when on full lock :-( , the back ones are sound as a pound ? , Ian I've got the stock black gear box cogs I could do with the white ones :-) , ill give bycmo a go for the bearings and the cogs I think ..

hi steve
there are 2 ways to fix the hexes
one is order the hexes in the link i gave you
measure the center of the shaft where the hex goes
to get the right size they do other colours and sizes
the other is to get a tube of plasticard the right size
for the shaft and the center of the hex and cut to size for the hex
that should work
have you got anything you can think of ian
hope that helps

Hi dus ,

I've measured the axle were the hex would fit and it's 3mm thick , the smallest I can find on the web is a 5mm hole to a 4mm axle which is what I have , do you think the lockable ones would fit any better ? The plasticard sounds good but I haven't got a clue wot it is lol

Right, have checked all our hubs and they are 5mm, checked all axles and they are just under 5mm.
Can't see why you having problem.
Ones on ebay are the correct 5mm hole size.
Not going to insult your intelligence but you still have the original black hub in place in one of the pics.

Hi steve
Had a look in the junk box I have found a silver axle and a black axle
If you don't mind different coloured shafts

Hi Ian , 

All is in place and the hubs are 5mm and the axles at the rear are 5mm but on the front axle where the 5mm hexes will sit the axle is below 4mm which gives lots play even with the wheel tightened fully , I've added a spacer between the hex and the hub and it seems to have done the trick .

Hi dus , 

Thanks for the offer but I think Ive sorted it with the spacer in place ( one of the old plastic bearings )
