RE wheel bearing

STW stopped using bearings on the front wheels with the last batch of agriculturals. (Some got them and some didn't) Apparently the new metal they are using for the front axel doesn't need bearings (some special type of graphite steel from memory). If the inside diameter of the hubs and the diameter of the axel shaft are the same then you don't need to worry about it.
I'm sure Steve will get around to updating the docs one day.

Cheers Andrew

Hi all,
Hope you are all well..
FYI We didn't get any wheel bearings with our kit 1 either, we had a heart attack when we watched CriX's video on youtube and saw his hub was different to ours.
Thankfully we're not alone...

Good luck everyone!
