Here's some sizing info: (courtesy of NiMo)
VSW006 has 52mm shaft (VSW006-01) connected to a 0mm offset wheel shaft (VZW054-02).

also:
VSW015 has 50mm shaft (VSW007-01) connected to a 0mm offset wheel shaft (VZW054-02)
VZW054 has a 45mm shaft (VZW054-01 connected to a 0mm offset wheel shaft (VZW054-02)

Default Making Decals...

This might seem a little off topic, but I thought it worth sharing, as my car is actually a V-ONE RRR...

I experimented recently with the XXX Main glue and my printer, and found it a great way to make your own graphics. All the decals (aside from the protoform ones), on this Mazda 6, I made on my own inkjet printer and normal white paper.

And no, in this photo I hadnt yet made holes for the air or exhaust.

I realise this isnt exactly revolutionary, and perhaps even frowned apon (i realize airbrushing is much more in vogue), but I have not really seen it done to any great extent before like this so I thought I'd give it a go, and let you all know it's possible, and really easy!

Munk, looks great! And don't think it's frowned upon. I like that paint scheme a lot, I used to sport one similarlike that... easy to paint and looks fast!

Good job!

which one of those # are for the front only? I had a post that stated my bones were to long and bottoming out in the out drive cups, which after a f ew lapps they would shatter in the joint. the card said vzw054 but thats not what was in the package. If the vsw015 are fronts, I think that is what they may of been because they were 5mm longer than what they should of been.

If you can take a picture of half of the entire front end, maybe we can see if something is out of place.... without a picture it's hard to figure out.

Cool!!

Munk, inspirational artwork, bro. I'm starting to get tired of my paint schemes. I use high-performance vinyl for the black stuff and apply to the inside and just spray my two colors. It's a fast method for me because I already know how the decals should layout. But I think I'm gonna try what you did. If I can do it as nearly as nice as yours, I won't have any use for my filing cabinet of decals. Sorry these are MTX4 images. I'll shoot my Kyosho stuff for you guys later. But then again I have about 10 more cars that look similar to these.
