Hi all,

I've got a few ultrascale 00 gauge wheel packs but now I have changed to EM gauge, just wondering if any of you guys have pulled them out?

Thanks as always chaps..

Craig

What RTR types are they for??

 

Older packcake motors are more difficult as the geared wheel includes the spacer to align the gear. While you can add spacers on the non-geared side to realign the wheels, ot does mean the wheelset is offset to the non-geared side, so the bogie will sit a mil or so to one side.

 

Newer chassis (central motor, cardans to central-geared axles) easier - there might be enough of the axle boss to take guage-widening, if not you can replace the axles with longer ones from suitable steel rod.
