Default Monogram NASCAR replacements

Hi Al

I am interested in replacing the rear axle and spur in my Monogram #34 Wendell Scott Fairlane with Slot.It parts, and so I would be keen to get a wheel that is a good replacement for the standard Monogram wheel (in terms of size and tyre height) that fits a 3/32" axle, and which will take a turned down plastic Monogram wheel as an insert or a suitable resin insert. Please advise which of your wheels you generally recommend for this application, and whether you have an insert to suit.

My Fairlane has a few mods underneath I'm keen to keep it looking as close to historic and standard as possible.

I am assuming that you ship parts to Australia, of course

cheers.

BW3215-275-093-450 is what you want, I also have the correct insert.

Sounds good - how do I order some?

Do you recommend any particular tyres for this fitment, e.g. Gage urethanes? I've recently bought some of the standard ones for this car (PGT-21083) from him on ebay, and I am wondering if there is a similar width and diameter tyre that suits your wheels

I think the standard replacement tires will fit my rim.

Send me an email at bwapenrose@hotmail.com

Default Al, are you about?

Haven't heard back about the split of parts costs for the order received (some of it is for a friend, so need a breakdown)

Also sent an order and some questions earlier this week.
- And I see above an answer to one of my questions - that you have the correct insert for the Monogram Stockers, to go inside a .450 wheel - perfect. I'll need 2 sets of 4 of those as well.

cheers

The MRRC tyre which us used on their Chaparral etc, has the right size and height of centre ridge for Al's 15" .275 wheels

More significantly, the shoulders are "offset" - so by fitting them with the narrower side shoulder to the outside, you can get the outside edge of the hub and the tyre flush, with a bit of "meat" on the inside of the hub, and so have 8.5mm (0.34") of tyre width clearing both wheel arch and chassis.
But they need grinding down as their profile is too tall.
(I was using my own urethanes in this profile. Paul probably makes them as well)

I fitted a Slot.it 18mm Spur, "tipped" it - took the tips off the teeth with file to bring it down to 17.5mm (0.7"), and ground the tyres till they were about 19.2mm (0.77") diameter on the BWA .275 hubs.

That lowered the rear of the car nicely and made it less prone to rolling at the first sight of a corner
I also trued the original fronts and lowered that, which in turn dropped the guide to full depth in the slot.

As the empty magnet box was close to touching the track, I put in ahseet of card where the magnet had been to fill the hole, then filled it with JB Quick...... That stiffened the whole chassis, and so I could then grind away the leading edge of it to give the chassis clearance on my track.

Just the fronts from either the MRRC Chappy or Cobra fit the .275 wide, the MRRC rears off those two cars fit my .380 wide.

Ninco Classic 7mm and 9mm wides both fit the .275 rim, and, we use that rim with the wide 9mm Ninco Classic all round on our vintage NASCARs up here.

15" rims are all 7.00us/pair
13"s are 6.00/pair
inserts are all 3.00us/4
