Can anyone identify the manufacturer of these alloy wheel covers for Tamiyas Ford Ranger/Subaru Brat models?
They are old stock but the seller lost the packaging forever ago.

I’ve seen them on models before so they are out there.

Thanks in advance.
They are Race Prep. I have a rear pair (the narrower 2 are the rears) that is new in pack. If they are for sale let me know!

I'm going to agree Kyosho, but thinking Optima Mid (one of the versions) or Lazer?

Paul,

Looks to be a Schumacher Cougar2. Shape of the body lower outline is very much a match to the Cougar2 tub chassis plate...

Plus, has the nose extension on the back, the hump in the bonnet / hood area, and the small cutouts at the base of the front windscreen. Also, the little cutouts at the widest parts of the body as well... definitely Cougar2.

Thank you Alex, you are totally correct! I didn't even think about it myself... the only excuse I have for not making the connection with schumacher's 2wd is that the couple of C2's I have already have a cut body, so the two ridges at the back are less obvious... but still... :roll:

Thanks!

I'm rebuilding a Big Boy Toys Sprint Car and the rear shocks I'm not quite sure of the manufacturer. I thought associated at first but it's not the gold bodies. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello All,

Need some help with these wheels. They're made by Trinity and and marked as being for the JRX2 and Pro however, they do not fit my Pro. They hit the H arm well before the wheel is fully seated.

To the best of my knowledge, there shouldnt be a difference between the JRX2 and Pro as far as the wheels are concerned so the only other thing I can think of is that there was a mixup at the factory and these are actually for a Kyosho?

I tried fitting them on my original RC10 and they dont fit that either. :?:

Thanks

Do you have the hinge pin in the upper or lower hole on the hub carrier?
