I am interested in what you had to do for the wheels,looks like you had to do some handy work.
Wheels are the biggest problem for Plazmas then the spur gear,any ideas you came up with might help somebody. Thanks for posting.
what you see on there is not going to help a lot, sorry.

The wheels are from SG: prosso. Those cars had a 5mm axle and ball diff (32dp) but I didn't have the axle anymore so I bolted a standard spur on th left side wheel and put it on the right side. The right wheel I drilled and put a set screw in. On the front I used steering blocks and axles from a schumacher 1/12th car I was never able to identify. The centerhole was opened up from 3 to 3.2 mm.
I was running another set of wheels before which are easier to get: from a tamiya F1. See the picture. But they still left me with the stock spur
