Hello all, so we got third overall in our pack and we are going to the regional race. I glued the axles in place so I am not going to remove them. I just want some feedback on prior experiences. Would you hit the wheels/axles with another round of graphite or not?

Yes, re-graphite them. Work it in by rolling it on a smooth surface with a little bit of finger pressure to break-up the graphite flakes and help build up a layer, shake the car gently, lightly rattling the wheels to get any loose, graphite out and repeat twice. The key is to not over graphite, but to re-build the layers before your races. In most cases, graphite will only be at peak performance for 12-15 runs.
