Better than a roundhouse punch, no doubt. Off to the inspection pit . . .

It would be much appreciated. I have one Climax and it does have a problem sometimes, but I think I've found the cause. Don't really want to try to open the truck unless I'm sure I can replace it if I have to. Oddly enough, only one truck, the other is fine. I wish they had made the trucks with screws rather than "bend over" (break off) tabs to hold them together. Love it's slow speeds though.

Within the last 4 - 5 months there was a good thread in this group on "tweaking", tuning and remotoring the MDC Roundhouse Boxcab.
The discussion was extensive enough to make me run a series of E bay searches looking for a couple of MDC Boxcabs for projects.
Currently on E bay there are 5 or so "New in Box" from a hobby shop in Canada with a ridiculous starting bid ( $ 29,99 or 24.99 US IIRC) and one other "new in Box" - undecorated no less -- that started out at $ 0.99 and was up to about $ 7.00 last time I looked yesterday.
I'd go $ 10 - 15 for a project unit.

Problem with them, I won't use ebay. I'd rather have someone with an asking price and just pay it. I'm not looking for any "real steal", and don't mind paying a reasonable price for reasonable goods. New in box was worth $27(?) to the original purchaser, it should be worth the same if it's still NIB. Assembled, well, someone has already configured it to something I'll have to modify, maybe a little less.
