I assumed the wobble on the rear wheel was due to a worn bearing.
After dis assembly, then review, came up with a new diagnosis: bent rear stub axle.
With new axle installed, took the Raider out for a little test run on the new 60A ESC/5200kw motor and 2S Lipo, with street meat tires. She really hauled buns and no spin-outs when the throttle was fully cranked.
When you start out in this stuff with a brushed motor, then upgrade to brushless and get that taste of speed, it's a serious addiction.

I'd like to get a little running video to share. I'm still impressed with the cheapie $16 street meat.

Love the title of the thread. I'm sure quite a few of us starting out by taking things apart when we were kids. Just had to know how everything worked!
