I thought I would show some pictures of what I did to the front landing gear and explain a little.
I placed some thin ply behind the plastic firewall so it wouldn't move as much during landings. I also drilled out the main plastic landing gear guide the large round plastic guide. I than took a 40 size nitro front landing gear and placed a small piece of fuel tubing on the shaft of the of the new gear. I drilled the main guide to be slightly smaller than the fuel tub/shaft diameter.
I placed the fuel landing gear into the drilled out guide hole and than used some wheel locks to hold the gear in place from top to bottom. The reasoning behind the fuel tubing and drilling out the main landing gear guide was to make sure there was no room for play side to side.
