just watchout actually welding the pins
tried that and i think it over hardned them made them brittle.

good idea with the "washer" thing though

Thanks Jake yes i heard you had a go at welding and thought that might have happened.
Ive made the new pins an interferance fit and presed them all into place.

I made the pins out of satin /chrome 318 welding rods
I put the gear box in the new bot and gave it a bit of a thrashing tonight so far so good ...
The cheese on the other hand .. well i dismantled its gearbox today and it's managed to screw the 12mm shaft off inside the gear box where it connects to the final gear carrier..might just have been a faulty shaft ..but the wheel took a huge impact and the outer gear case is also fractured so it might have been a combination of the hit and the wheel turning that made it bend and screw at the same time ..It has taken a pounding sice it was buit and its the first gear box to break on it i expected them to break on landing a few times when it was launched by maruder lol ..
