Hello, everyone.

I am amazed at the wealth of knowledge and information here.

A picture to make it real...

You may have noticed my motor wires are pretty thick.

Thatís because the original wires broke.

Itís hard to see, but the black wire broke from its tab on the board.

I stepped up the wire gauge and got the soldering iron out.

I like it. I included the original wires for your browsing pleasure.

Also, that plastic t-plate is STIFF.

How about the PN Racing MR-03 MM Silver Carbon T-Plate #3 (MR3001S)?

Much better.

Next up, bearings!

PN Racing Mini-Z 2WD Shield Hub Dry Ball Bearing Set (600129).

It took me a long time to figure out why there were only 7. (Because one of the rear wheels is statically attaches to the axle.)

Also, no pictures, but I bought 400324 PN Racing Mini-Z Pro Match Delrin Pinion 7T-10T.

I picked the 7T. Nice and quiet.
