I said before, I have used them, they hit, I had an indicating noise going round the corner. Only hit when I turned, ran them for long enough and eventually the piece it was hitting on did it's job and wore them down.

Just had a look at them, about a cm out from the axel hole they hit, for about 1/2 cm. You would have to file off no more than 1mm to get them to work. 0 offset.

Hmmm....Might be worth a look then. The rear arms are cut so they hopefully won't be a problem.
I also have some Tamiya wheel adapters which widen the car ever so slightly and they might be helpful too.

Unless you use the beefy rear arms they won't hit in the back, I know my Dad put some of the worlds arms on and they hit a little.

I just heard from a reliable source that the new Yok may be a front shaft driven rear belt car. Interesting...

front shaft, rear belt?

doesn't sound right..........in fact from a design point of view it's weird to implement something like that.

guess we have to wait and see.
