Has anyone noticed warped front rims? Mine have a noticeable wobble to them. The surface of the tire is round, so the truer arbor that was used definitely fits the bearing surfaces like its supposed to.

The tire will probably work okay, but it looks a bit goofy.

If it was about impressing people, Id be willing to bet that this chassis wouldnt have been released. This is a simple car with a price point that wont break anyone's bank and is a class that can be entered with minimal initial outlay.
Said it before...

The LM-1 is the most enjoyable package in RC I've ever owned, and as it turns out, the cheapest. But not in quality - I've yet to break a single part while racing this chassis twice a week for months now.

Anyone who I've given my controller to, has bought the car. I've been in this hobby for a few decades now...the LM-1 stands out as my favorite.

I do however, have mine decked out in Tresrey red.

How many mm wide is the LM-1 rear tires?
Seems a bit narrow compared to the old style 200mm pancars.

Rears are 39.6mm wide, fronts are 30.5mm. Yes, that's narrower than the old pancars, but reflects the current trends in full-sized racing cars. CanAm and 70's F1 cars had huge rear tires!

Thanks :-) Like F1, realism is very important

All of my wheels are not true. The fronts are worse than the rears for sure.

Can I buy this car somewhere in Europe? Would prefer to buy it where I don't have to pay additional taxes...

Cheers,
Peter
