My brother bought a Mardave on Ebay about 2 months ago. Really cool looking car which is fun to drive around the house. The bodies are hard plastic and can be painted with all sorts of logos and or drivers. Will see if I can get pics of it up.

ive been racing them for about 3 years so i pretty much know them inside out. Ive never seen these touring car wheel adaptors your on about ive made them fit by truing mardave foams down to the diameter of the inside of a tc wheel then forcing them on but it didnt work well
