Hints: Use a screw driver with a magnetic head (or bluetack) to hold screw in place when fixing gearboxes to lower hull.

If you are upgrading to metal heavy duty gearboxes, we recommend that you also upgrade the plastic sprockets to metal sprockets at the same time. Upgrade to metal heavy duty gearboxes and metal sprockets is recommended if you intend to run metal tracks on your tank.

Note that no soldering is required! All you need is a set of screw drivers.
