Hi, the wheels shown are 1/24th scale I believe. I'm not aware of anyone doing 1/32nd versions anywhere. You can get this type of wheel/tyre combo in three different diameters, the smallest being 1" dia, .300/285" wide, they fit on a 3/32 axle. The fronts are usually 3/4"or a few are available in 1/2". As far as I'm aware there is only one supplier who stocks drag wheels in the UK and that's AB Slotsport. I get mine from France or the States and would be willing to supply you if you wanted some. View this link for the wheels that are mainly available: Wheels/Tyres.

PM for any further info.

Cheers

MrD

Cheers Steve, just waiting for the shell to arrive so I can see if any of those will fit. Being 1/32 it may be a bit of a squeeze.

Thanks for the tip, will have a look there too.
My shell seems to be taking ages to come, but thats ebay for you

Searching for missle.co.uk came up with some interesting results, but found it in the end.
Looking at the Carrea Hot Rod option, couldn't find anyone with those wheels as spares.
Any suggestions?

Try Sean at Pendle.

But if you want a long term smooth performance spec car, go see Steve D or Missile. I've used both and both are very reliable.

Pendle list loads but have very little choice in stock.
Hopefully shell should arrive by the weekend, it's a 1/32 shell but slightly over scale. Once i can have a measure I'll see who is best to pester for wheels

Is someone missing a trick here not supplying nice wheels for 1/32?

Cheers Cabb77

Hi Cabb77, the 1/32 or 1/24 slot drag racing debate is well documented elsewhere on this site. Unfortunately, slot drag racing is a very low minority sport and in other countries, especially the US, France, Australia, NZ, Malta etc, 1/24th scale is very much the norm for slot drags. So, in answer to your question, I don't think so, as demand would be very low.

Cheers

Cabb' If you still want a set of front and rear protrack wheels as per illustration then get to tomorrows Earlybirds meeting and introduce yourself - they,re in my carbox waiting for you, subject to a suitable donation to Acorns charity(£10).
