umm you just have to pull and twist to get the rear whels off,but with smaller wheels the car will go dramatically slower.
Agreed. You *could* fit the smaller wheels to the 8:1 rear axle I suppose… then put a bigger (white?) motor pinion on to compensate.
does a fullsize wheelset do any difference?
If you wanna put large wheels at both ends, that’s an eventrickier job.
You need to (1) pull them off a spare axle, (2) drill them through accurately for the fixed axle and (3) replace them onto the front steering knuckles.
#2 & 3 are definitely very tricky operations!! Very hard to make it ‘roll’ properly on the front axles and trueness will be hard to maintain.
Its easier imho to glue front wheels onto the gear & rear axle, that’s only cutting and glueing – you don’t need it to spin freely & truly.
ok thanks for the tips Wills
Don’t Zip Zaps have same size wheels on the front and back? I would think that they should fit on the bits, if you can get a hold of one. I seem to remember seeing a mod like this somewhere…
