“In this assembly session you will prepare the rear axle, attaching the respective differential, and you will carry out a simple intervention on the model’s chassis.”
Materials: The Rear Axle is metal, but the rest of these bits are plastic.
Assembling the Transmission II
Slide the two posts of the Rear Differential (Piece 1) into these matching holes of the Rear Axle. Fit the Rear Differential (Piece 2) over the Rear Axle, match it up to the Rear Differential (Piece 1), and secure both halves together with two (2) KM screws, as shown.

Retrieve your Chassis assembly as well as the unused Rear Brake Hose, Brake Hose Guide, and the two CM screws from Stage 34. Turn your Chassis assembly over and fit one end of the Rear Brake Hose to this pin on the brake Connector, as shown:

Secure the Brake Hose Guide to this location on the Chassis using two (2) CM screws, as shown:
Feed the free end of the Rear Brake Hose through the center hole of the Brake Hose Guide as shown. This end of the Rear Brake Hose will be left unattached for now:
