well the sprocket, hubs, and brake rotor all mount on to the axle. its hard to explain but everything lines up with little holes to keep them from spinning on the axle itself

when i get time to actually disassemble ill get some pics

have you looked into your model specific forums? maybe you can head to a kart place locally and ask a few questions to the techs or managers.

Check with your local small machine shop. They can probably straighten it in a press.
