    Has the 1/24 Lola not made to our shore yet?
    Waiting to see one. The rear tires/wheels got panned badly on a German forum.

      No LOLA yet. They said November. We'll see. You know I'll post them ASAP! :^)

        WB2, "November" from Carrera usually means November 30th, or sometime in December. lol

        I think what JamieB is seeing is reflection off the chrome, not out-of-roundness.
        The issue is the extreme width and height of the center rib. It doesn’t leave much room for tire material. One person commented the tire seemed more like a piece of heat shrink tubing than a tire.

        Frankenslot of Germany has a wheel and tire upgrade available. For front and rear it adds up to $54.31, almost doubling the cost of the car (add in shipping and it would). However, the kits include new axles, wheels, tires, gear, and motor mount.
        Supposedly the Frankenslot parts really transform the cars, but at a healthy cost.
        Perhaps Bruce from Cincy Slots could add comments. At one time he carried Frankenslot parts.

        I hope that a current Paul Gage tire could be fit by reducing that monstrous center section on a tire truer.

        We no longer stock their parts.

        Ya, that center rib is huge! Way too tall and will seriously hamper the handling of the car! Good that Frankenslot makes proper parts available, but Carrera could have done a much better job with this!
