I have seen a number of posts spread all over the forums about problems with the rear axles on these cars. If you have had problems, can you put them here? Just problems with these items please, and once again boys I am directing Fly to these threads so lets keep to the points in question please!

Cheers,

Aaron

Hmmm, well if you mean, did my Beemer lose a rear wheel out of the box with minimal laps and none of 'em hard charging, then, yes, I had a problem.


Can't see the axle listed as a spare yet, either.

No problems with mine as yet and many laps run.
I run no magnet and am more than happy with these (for once? (wink)) releases.
However, if their axles/wheels are anything like the MK1 GT40 then the problem lies (in my opinion) with the fact that the wheels (12.5mm wide in the case of the GT40) only sit on the axles to a depth of 2 and a half to 3mm.

Wankel, I am hoping axles and spares for these will not be far off. the GT40 MK1 spares are out already, though sadly only for the upgraded chassis/axle set up ones, NOT the early 'Gulf' ones.

If anyone (Aaron?) knows where to source the original axles/gears/wheels I would be a VERY HAPPY BUNNY!
Looking for two complete sets to replace damaged ones.

Aaron, if I could just direct you to my post welcoming a new SF member (Kev Hunter) and his son, or rather more specifically my reply


Mark.

Oh well, it was worth a try....

Exactly. Many thanks Aaron. I think all those spare Ferrari disc brakes will make a lovely necklace for my wife! I must find a gold chain to put them on


DISCLAIMER:-
I have no idea what Aaron may be sending. The object may well not cost as much as the postage. It is irrelevant, but will in any case be received with thanks (as long as he doesn't post me a rotten kipper!) and in the spirit of our posts. I was not in any way trying to take advantage - just being light-hearted.


Now I suppose this thread had better get back on track

Fair comment JC, but seeing as Aaron (and Gaugemaster) is a distributor over here, and also the amount of help Aaron volunteers I reckon that it's allowed in his case.

Arrgh we've gone off topic slightly again

Still have not seen mine. Got everything else from you but the discs are stil M.I.A.

yes, I too had problems with the rear wheels on the Fly BMW 3.5. Put it on the track and one spun one direction, the other the opposite direction. figures since i fianlly got the front end straightened out too.
