Which front wheels are working for the front hubs just the yellow ones? I think they went away from the front hubs after the M300RS but donīt know what wheels had the RS.
BTW what is the difference between Kawada and Kawada Wolf? I have seen pics from the Wolf RX230 and RX430 but these are completely different cars than the M300 series. Is the Wolf just for 4WD cars or is there maybe an other brand involved like AYK and AYK Ishihara?
Wheels,the RS used the yellow wheels,they quickly changed over to the dish wheels though for the M300RSZ.You can use both the yellow wheels and the Wolf wheels on the M300RS. You can see when the change in the rear hubs,the yellow wheels have a different offset than the wheels that came with the M300RSZ.
The yellow wheels you are talking about have a rear offset much the same as the Kyosho cars at the time.
The M300RSZ was the first car to come with the current type wheels.Both front and rear on the M300RSZ were the new type wheel.
About the Wolf, There are basically two place in Japan where rc is big. Osaka and Toyko area.
Kawada and ABC Hobby are Osaka companies, Kyosho,AYK and Yokomo are/were Tokyo companies.So for a while in the 80s Osaka and Tokyo were doing things a little different because they seperated most of the year untill the big races. So Kawada did most of thier own designs without help from Ishihara or Ichimura. Ishihara and Ichimura were both Tokyo people. And Hirosaka did most of the early ABC stuff when in Osaka before moving to Yokomo.
