Being as though it's a 2" wheel it could interfere. Also, if you don't have the spacer between the axle pin and outer bearing, it would allow the wheel to get closer to the taper on the arm.

I do have the spacer installed. I will try moving the pin to the upper hole and see if the wheels fit.

Thanks again.

That's really cool, another one I didn't know about. What was it called? I didn't see the name in the first or last page of that thread, translating from French anyway.

Google translate might have failed me, but doesn't the owner confess later on in the thread that he was kidding about it being a production model? He confesses on the April 1st dated post that he built it himself.

Really? I confess I did not have time to read through all pages when I found them. I'll report back when I do have more time. (I can read French pretty well, no need for google translate for me)

I'm sure we all wanted to discover there was a FWD version of the Buffalo or an as-yet-undiscovered prototype...and the build looks so well-done that it's entirely convincing. The joke reveal was halfway down page 4 where I imagine most viewers missed it...when I glance at a build thread, unless it's something I'm totally keen on, I'll read the first page or two, then skip to the last page or two to see the latest updates. So, the joke's on all of us! :oops:

Thanks, I put them on eBay because I have no use for them. They've been up there for a couple weeks so I must be asking too much. :wink:
