Default Wheel axles on 1:12 pancars

Do all modern 1:12 pancars use the same diameter wheel axles (front and rear)?

If yes, what size are they?

If not, what different sizes to the various companies use?

1/4" is the standard rear axle size, pretty much everyone is usinig it, but Corally, Serpent and Xray may be different, also the Hot bodies may be different, don't know for sure.

1/8" is standard up front, the CRC GENX (Pro Strut front end) uses a 3/16 axle tho. Again, Corally, Serpent and XRAY may be different, but not likely in the case of the front axle.

Corally cars that use the Corally wheels are different up front, though can't remember exactly what size.

The Serpent S120 & the HB C12 both use the 1/4" rear axle size for sure. Corally uses metric sizes on the rear axle.

For the front end, Serpent & HB both use the standard 1/8" front axle sizes and Corally a different system exept on the WC version with the Asso/CRC front end, there is uses the 1/8" front axles like we all know.

From the pictures of the Xray car I'd say they will go with the flow and use the standard 1/4" & 1/8" rear & front axles...

Every other brand like Associated, BMI, CRC (exept pro strut) use the 1/4" rear axle and 1/8" fronts...

The CRC front axles on the pro strut front end are 3/16 if i remember correctly. The rest of us use 1/8th front axles and 1/4" rear axles.
