Hello again! I'm in need of a spinning blade for my latest ant, and was wondering if any of the usual suspects happened to have one lying around as that would save me a lot of frustration! Preferably something with a grub screw, drop us a PM or whatever and we can work something out :-) Jack

I don't suppose anyone has some of the smallest size lego tank tracks lying around?? Ebay seems to have run dry. :( Or any other suggestions for fleaweight tracks would be much appreciated??
Cheers Jim. :)

Jim, if you can find Tamiya track links anywhere, they're what Pete Waller uses I believe. And because they come in links you can get them down to pretty small sizes.

Although I did use the Tamiya tracks on a flea I did machine up my own drive wheels as the originals were a bit too large. As standard they come with 16 and 11 tooth drive wheels I made some 8 tooth ones.

You cant see the drive wheels but it gives you an idea of the size against Defiant.
