  • NSR Axle in Slot.It Bushing?

    I'm rebuilding a Monogram Grand Sport Corvette with an Olifer 3D chassis designed to take a Slot.It sidewinder motor pod.

    The stock rear wheels on the Monogram measure 15.75 x 9.75 mm. The closest sized metal rear wheel I have found is the NSR 5015 which is stated to be 16 x 10 mm. I think this will work well with the Paul Gage urethanes I already have on the stock car.

    The problem is that the Slot.It sidewinder motor pod comes outfitted with spherical bushings which are designed, naturally, to take Slot.It axles which have a very slightly larger diameter than NSR axles (2.38 as opposed to 2.37 mm).

    My question is will an NSR axle fit inside a Slot.It bushing, or will that 1 hundredth of a mm difference allow for too much slop?

    Appreciate your advice.

    if you can, just buy the slotit axle and take the guess work out of it. also a15x10 wheel should work,measure the diameter of the monogram wheel with the tire on it, slot car corner would be able to give more info than me really good guys. send them an email.make inserts from the plastic wheels. thats all ive got. hope that helps you.

      Right. Don't know why I didn't think of the Slot.It 15.8 x 10.2 wheels. They'll work fine. Thanks.

    I've done that and it ran fine, but obviously prefer proper size match, preference goes to Slot.It axles with matching bushings.
