Okay I've just tried uploading like I do normally and it didn't work, so it's definitely not you. Noticed the pic I was trying was uploaded via the iPhone app, could you try uploading one from your pc and see how that goes??
Aye RTR asked me to get on here, lots of people asking about the first kits apparently. I was going to wait till I had more progress. It's quite informative on here though, I've been scanning through peoples build pages, get some great ideas and hints and tips.
Thanks to everyone wishing us well with the build, best go make some progress
Only a little bit of progress today, front hubs, discs and callipers mounted.
Actually this has created a couple questions. On these alloy hubs, when you dog up the axle nut, how much preload do you put on the bearings? Also how are others locking these nuts, there not nylon lock and the split pin hole is miles off?
As for the tension of the nut, I was told by my expert mechanic that I needed to tighten the nut up to the washer infront of the bearing then turn it back half a turn as the bearing will expand under heat generated but the rotational friction of the wheel.
I think most have used castle nuts, can't remember the size but if you look through Ade's rocket build and the tech section I'm sure the size is there.
Started 22/6/11 Finished 13/8/12 487 Hours Build time. Now on the road, weather dependant.
