I ordered 2 packages of these Team Associated bushings nr 2277. They are flanged and maybe I will have to file the flange off to make them to the right size.

I received the bushigs this week. They came all the way from Finland. It was impossible to push in the bushings by hand. I mounted a 3mm bolt with nut and washers to push them gently into place by screwing the nut. When the nut was fully tight, I removed the bolt and tried the wheel on the stub axle. It fits perfectly and the wheel turns freely. This indicates the great precision that the wheels were made with. I was afraid that 2 separated bushings wouldn't line up but they did! Although the flanges make the hub wider, there is still enough room left to mount some filler washers.

I completed the chassis today. Before mounting the front wheels, I put some oil into the bearings and had them soaked all day. 2 3mm washers were needed per side for the end play. I fitted the standard rubber Jerobee tyres and made sure the inscription "Jerobee Racing" was on the outside. The track rod I used is the one that was on the car. This track rod is split and gives immediately the right toe in. I have an original Jerobee track rod but the is one piece of piano wire.
I assembled the back axle with a 56 teeth gear that Ron sent me ages ago. When mounting the gear, better mount it with the text on the inside then at least, it remains visible.

The front body post was not so fresh anymore. The top is bent and the mounting hole became bigger and bigger as different screws were used. Washers were inserted to get the right height. I found locally an assortiment of body posts with screws as a replacement. I'm sure one will fit.

I installed the new front body post. The back post had to be more towards the rear to clear for the head rest extension. The previous owner made a simple piece of aluminium with a nylon bolt and foam pads for the body to sit. As the aluminium covered the oblong hole for the throttle rod, I had to cut away some material in order to use the hole again.

Looking Good , comes together a little at a time and not to much modifying Popcorn Can't believe you found replacement stands for the body to sit on .

The car with the engine mounted. For the moment, it's for free running only. I still have to drill a 1,5mm hole in the circlips for the throttle rod.

I need to modify the homemade rear body support. One side is right above the red pull starter handle.

What radio Lieven? Steering only? Looking great so far. Where would you run it?

No. Not steering only. That's why I need to drill that hole in the circlip. I'd like to recreate the rc control of the Bandero where 1 servo controls throttle and steering, but I haven't figured that out yet.

Good trick if you can do it Lieven. I don't see how but I'm sure that you will find a way. Bob

This is what the Jerobee brochure says, but we knew that already
