Had an incident last night and slightly bent an axle. It’s a. OTK 1000mm “N” axle if that matters.
Anyhow, are you compromising performance by straightening an axle? It’s onky out about 1.5mm so “fixable” based on people I’ve talked to. But I’m concerned that it’s not going to be the same after fix as I was really finding my grove with the kart.
So new isn’t cheap but is it worth it? …or will a straightener axle still perform fine?
Side question. I got blasted in the right side? While kart airborne broke the seat when I landed, right side nerf bars bent pretty decent. When I pulled the axle it spun but not very well but I re-aligned the bearings and it spun fine again.
So does this thing need to go on a table to straighten the frame or is it possible the bearings shifted in their carriers during the impact ? Everything was behind the front end and when I threw lasers on it this morning the front end was exactly where it’s been all year.
Thanks in advance. First big shunt and want to get back to running out front not struggling with the kart after I put it back together.
