Hello, gentlemen! Joel, thanks for posting my Pics from Photobucket!! I just received the Champion Lola-GT Clear body from electric dreams to put on the chassis and I gotta tell ya, the surfaces were riddled with small bubbles! Horible!!!! I've contacted them and am waiting their conformation of a better one in stock! "Is anyone making quality products anymore"!!!! About the collet pinion gear, "it works" and works very well on this Champion unit! Once nut is loosened both the collet & gear slide right off! Dimensioned just right!!! The Corvette body needs some splits repaired at the front & rear - bottom edges. No big deal now thanks to Tony's Parma lead! Just placed new carrera brushes on the rather large guide-shoe, brushes seem alittle small on it but may be ok. I thought the brushes would be more like 3/16" wide but in fact are closser to 1/8th". I even had trouble winding the screws through the holes. Could be 3/16th longer, also! Almost seems like there for 1/32, gee, I hope there not! Anyway, think I may have found some nos blk silicone slicks, also!!
