Re: What is the rarest R/C part you have

Re: The RC Corvette in - (1988) The Dead Pool - Clint Eastwood

@Phin, to make certain I'm understanding the dimensions completely: The front wheels are 1.7" diameter/no-hub/RC10 bearings - the rear wheels are 1.6" diameter/no-hub/RC10 bearings. Would you happen to know the width of the front and rear wheels, also? I need to be able to tell the CNC ma...

Re: The RC Corvette in - (1988) The Dead Pool - Clint Eastwood

Here ya go...MarkyDents has MM wheel dimensions posted here: https://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?p=521900#p521900

They're the 3 slot version (A10-F3S & R3S) but dimensions should be the same.
