    It worked in my case. Here I wrote what I did: That sounds unreasonably harsh! I had the opposite experience (see above), they sent me a full new batch after only expressing my "disappointment".

    The only way they could solve their color inconsistency problem Yeah and here I saw a LOT of too, which has only been available in one set in 2001...

    Darn you TLG! Teasing us with 9L beams in Lime... As well as H-beams in Black... Source

    But the Rebrickable name is literally "Technic Axle Pin 3L with No Friction Ridges and 2L Axle" (emphasis added).

    I just realized this is actually a NEW part: it has NO friction ridges!

    42128 - American Tow Truck

    Maybe not in copious amounts, but they do pop up all the time! They appeared in Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Bucket Wheel Excavator, Lamborghini Sian, 6x6 Volvo Articulated Hauler, Dom's Dodge Charger, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1... to name just a few notable, recent sets.

  9. You can get them at "half price" from B&P. Order half of the number you need, then send a photo to customer service showing how misaligned the axle holes are, and they'll send you another batch.
  10. Here is an (over-engineered?) strengthening of the above. Connecting multiple circles is just a matter of inserting 5x7 frames I think.
  11. Have you considered parts in the categories "Technic Special" or "Constraction"? There's some funky stuff, for example:

    [WIP] Hennessey Venom F5

    I was just looking up photos of the real car and the resemblance is mind-blowing! I agree with @langko that it would be good if the black part of the A-pillars could be moved closer to the lime part. And have you tried replicating the white line on the inside of the headlights? Maybe with a slightly bent rigid hose... But it's always difficult to mount those without adding ugly clips, so I can understand it may not be worth it.
  15. OP sometimes mentions the word "classic" but I can't find any rule defining what sets count as classic. How much do we need to read into the usage of this word?
