How to fix axle to the CD

Post by sonalic » December 7th, 2019, 5:41 pm

Hi,

We bought a MVC kit from WardSci.com which includes a hub/bearing set to use with the CD wheels. However we are not able to figure out how to ensure the axle does not fall out of the CD hole.
And to make sure when the axle moves the wheel does to.

Our goal is to use the CD wheels and not sure if we need to use the hub/bearing. Kit does not have enough instructions. Any pointers are appreciated

Thanks!

I think for a mousetrap vehicle I would recommend the T40 because they are lighter, but even with these it's a good idea to drill holes in the frame to reduce weight. The heavier the wheel, the longer it will take for the vehicle to build up speed.
