I gotta admit I laughed at your first "suggestion"
Ok so just srew it on almost or all the way tight, then bend it?
I'm just afraid something is gonna snap.. and knowing my luck with this engine kit and everything, i'll find a way to snap it..
By the way, I got my kit in the mail last thurs so it's been a week since i've been trying to put it together and just wanting to ride the dang thing.
I'm just getting really sad... because this shouldn't be that hard...
