Bought a huge box of wheel this week. I just finished going threw them. Total 23 tires 12 aluminum rims sets and 12 plastic rims sets. Half 4 pin other 6 pin. I think I will sell the 4 pin wheels As I mainly use 6 pin.

Had to order a new DRO kit as the old unit died. Installed yesterday and what a difference it makes. I can now start making more hubs again.

Plastic rim arrived today. Most are 4 pin. A few that were 6 pin and 4 pin same style as I had purchased before and other 4 pin area different style rim. I have cleaned 1/2 of the box. total were 21 complete rims. 2 rims halves are a different width. Not standard 1" or 2 " like 1-1/2" and another 2 wheels were one piece.

Went threw the lot today and there were lots of new part Enough to build 2 + engines and I have a third from another lot that now can be completed. All that was missing was hardware to complete the second and third engines.

Finished front 6 bolt bearing hubs Today. Now I can start the throttle servo mount for the G2d engines. I bought a carbon fiber sheet. Original was fiberglass and it was to much flex.

cut carbo fiber sheet today. I didn't have a carbide tip blade. So I had to do some edge sanding to get throttle servo plates to size. I made 6 . Drilling wasn't a big deal. I use a end mill for the 1/2" bore holes. I will finish the other 3 tomorrow I mounted one and tried it out. Much stiffer now..
