Tamiya CS chassis RM01 wheels?

Recommended Posts

I have just seen a video on Youtube where a guy has mounted RM01 wheels on a CS chassis (58008 Lambo) unfortunately it was heavily modified with a different front axle.

In theory it should work, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions? The RM wheels come closer to the Lambo ones than the CS

These are RM rims/tyres fitted my Renault Martini Mk 22, no modifications, should be the same for all those early chassis cars.

As for changing the rim style to match, you could cut out the centres and swap, custom fittings them. Not impossible, but a bit of work.

Thanks mate ! there are two types of sponge tyres for RM-01 - looks like that your rear wheel is from RM-01X which is lightly bigger.

actually, I had to stretch them to fit. They might even be original foam tires (non-RM) from the era, but the fronts are definitely RM.
