Hi, i'm sending my frame away for repair. I did a search and some people have mentioned to put something inbetween dropouts to stop them getting pushed togther. Any ideas on what to use?

I'm going to wrap it in a blanket, then put it it a card box. is that ok?

    go to your LBS and see if they have a spare box and spare drop out spacers.

    if not a bit of threaded bar and 4 nuts and 4 washers. work it out :wink:

    Well my LBS's didn't have any (thursday is the day they throw out rubbish :lol: )
    Instaed i cut i bit of wood to fit nicely where the rear QR should go... hope that works!

    BTW nicklouse- is that a pic of a mini? My mates got one with a 1330 race tuned engine :twisted:

    hill climb/sprint car. that has been known to hit the drag strip sometimes.
