      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

There were and are several different sizes of slicks in 1:1 (full-scale, real cars), so getting something that is scale-correct isn't really a problem if you have a parts stash. Over the years I've modified the centers of various tires to take larger diameter rims by CAREFULLY cutting with a sharp X-acto, and finishing to round if necessary with sandpaper wrapped on an appropriately sized mandrel. If you're careful and pay attention, you can do a perfect job every time.

Like Bill said, you can make the holes larger, without much work...go slow, keep it round !

Other times require adapting wheel centers to hoops...that is a chore !
