    We'll see closer to the time. Had a bit of a setback here which means I can't work on it this weekend. It'll happen.

    Excellent, glad to hear the event is being looking forwards to! With any luck, I will have the arena's floor lifted up a little over the weekend and the pit floor painted.

    Jibril The HDPE base panel has been drilled. Doing 32 holes three times over in 3, 8 and 10mm bits is nuts but there you are. Currently mocking up the motor mount bolt pattern on a 1mm sheet of...

    I'd recommend something thicker, like the thread cutting oil that Colin mentioned. WD40 is probably going to be too light for this.

    Oh gosh! I was only using the bolt to hold the wheel up, it isn't a permanent fixture! I am going to get some shaft supports and some hardened steel shafts to overcome to the bent drive shaft issue...

    There are a pair of what I believe are 10-32 screw holes in the motor. The original plan was to use a piece of polycarbonate to the front face and bolt the face place to the mount and the motor.
