Build


Left Rear Wheel

Retrieve the Left Rear Tire from the previous pack and push it over the Left Rear Wheel. The tire is pretty soft rubber, so just work it over the entire wheel assembly until the ‘beads’ of the tire are seated as shown.

Unlike the front wheels, this wheel arrived fully assembled. I recommend pushing the wheel assembly through the tire with the outside of the wheel first. The process of inserting it can scuff the tire’s sidewall possibly leaving marks that you probably don’t want visible:

Once the tire is installed, you can make sure the tire slashers can be extended and retracted. To extend these, just slide your fingernail under the tip of any of the three tips of the spinner and pull it out:

Thoughts


We only mounted a tire in this pack, but the tire slashers are pretty cool! Keep it safe for a while as it will not be installed until Pack 66.
