    I've got one of those I've hardly touched. Now that I'm done with the scenery (Mostly done) I may need to get it out and see what I can do with it. Click image for larger version

    I finally got some tires for my Cucharacha and now have it repainted, added some details and have it up and running. Tires from Paul Gage, PGT 21122, fit the REH Cucharacha wheels just right!
    Here are some photos of repaint, extra details and ready to go race car.
    This is what I started with:

    Paint and decals before clear coat. I cut out the various vents on the car, filled them with small mesh screen, added a front splitter and rear spoiler and rear fender flares. The primer is Rustoleum Gray and the color is Duplicolor Nissan Blue Metallic.

    I then added various details like 2 tailpipes, a rear view mirror on the left front fender, taillights, injector stacks, driver, fire bottle, etc. I clear-coated everything with Pledge (clear floor coating) and set it on its chassis.

    The car already has some road rash from testing at Overlook Raceway Park but the paint finish wasn't perfectly smooth and shiny from the start and it'll get more banged up as soon as real racing starts, so it's okay for the Cuchcaracha Racing Team and the blue No. 10 car.

    Here's shots from the test runs,

    We still have some tuning to do before we're ready for serious racing - front ride height needs to be lowered, rear tires need to be sanded and trued and a few other adjustments. The near PGT 21122 tires in back seem to work great. Thanks to forum members for helping me to find the right tires!

    Hi Speedy, sorry for the late reply......if you look under Vintage Cox tires on the Paul Gage site, you will find them,......he does not make many, so, will be quick to find.

    Cheers

    Thanks for all of your responses. I'll look for some tires that are close to the dimensions and go from there. Sounds like the Paul Gage tires for the Cox Cheetah is probably the way to go (thanks Chris). I'll post a couple of pics when I have it up and running.

    The REH Cucarachas don't have original Cox wheels, though, so those tires may not fit.

    Paul gage makes a rear tire for the 1/32 Cox Cheetah.....and ,the "Cuc" and Cheetah wheels are very similar dimensionally, .....I have done a couple, and they fit just fine .

    They are a little bit bigger on the OD, but being urethane, they will be very easy and quick to turn down.

    Cheers

    Try the Paul Gage tire for the RevoSlot wheels, then getting to the size you need.

    I am not aware of any replacement tires made to fit those wheels. The La Cucharacha has 1/8th axles, but most modern 1/32nd cars use 3/32nd axles. 15X12mm wheels are available to fit 3/32nd axles, they would need to be reamed out to fit your axles. I am not aware of any modern wheels with a smaller OD that are wide enough. You may be able to find tires that have the same mounted OD as the Cox tires when they are on modern 15X12 wheels. If urethane tires are too big in diameter they are easy enough to sand down.

    1/32 scale La Cucharacha - new tires

    I have a 1/32 scale La Cucharacha (I think it's an REH re-pop of the original Cox version) that needs new rear tires. I'd like to put urethanes on it but don't know what size or brand will fit. Here are a couple of photos and dimensions of the wheels and tires now on it. I'd like to use the existing wheels and I want to the tires to fit into the existing wheel wells.

    Wheel dimensions:
    outer rim diameter - 12.5 mm
    hub diameter - 11 mm
    rim to rim wheel width - 11.5
    hub width (inside the rims) - 8 mm

    Tire dimensions:
    outside diameter - 19.5 mm
    inside diameter - 11 mm
    tread width - 11 mm

    I'd appreciate any advice you might have for new rear tires for my Cucharacha. Thanks in advance.
