Hi!
Where can I find the carbon shafts to use for assembling the axles?
I'm having trouble locating them.

Hi!

I buy my carbon rods from the local hobby shop. But you can probably find shorter pieces on eBay, and it doesn't have to be carbon rod either. If you use bearings you could even use wood. :) I have seen some users use threaded rod, which makes it possible to secure wheels and gears with nuts, which could be a good idea. I haven't tested it myself though. If you search for "stainless steel bar" on eBay you get also many results, so you could buy those and cut to the right length.
