I recently sold some NOS AF/X wheels to a nice guy on Ebay. He is looking for the standard AF/X front axles. I guess they are more like a nail than an axle. Does anyone have a source for these NOS, good used or repos? I told him I would try to find him some.

Talk to Bob at Slot Car Central. He has about EVERYTHING for Aurora HO cars!!

If you have the independently rotating front wheels, which means one axle hole is smaller on one wheel than the other wheel. You are correct, it looks like a nail. I think you need the "Aurora AFX, MT HO Slot Car Pin Style Front Axle #8715". Bob has like 116 of them on hand!!!

That bike wouldn't do 150mph if you dropped it down a mineshaft!!!

Jag Hobbies is a source I have used. The parts are still in the NOS bags with the part numbers. Racers will need to sort out the wheels, though.

Keep it in the slot,
