Baby has a new pair of shoes... and ankles!

I decided that I wanted more robust axles like on my Lancair, so I got some Dubro #246 1/8" x 1.25" steel axle shafts. I put these on my Lancair ES, as I said above, and they are solid!

I did not wish to compromise my new Pitts by having a wheel fall off on landing...

This new system also includes (what I added) 2.5" Pro-lite Hangar 9 wheels (larger than my 2.25" ones and more scale looking), 5/32" brass shims (made from tubing I had spare), and the stock collets and washers that came with the kit.

Much more sturdy, and should fly better! Just optimizing the plane before flying!
