Does anyone know of a source that supplies Adaptors that allow any wheel hub to fit the Axles (Metal or ABS) of the WPL/Heng Long Trucks either 4 or 6 wheeler versions?

There are plenty on Thingiverse converting the 5mm hex to a variety of other sizes.
As std wheels have a tendency to wobble, it could be comical to see the wobble after adaptors have been fitted

Thanks Wayne I shall check out Thingiverse. :thumbup:
When I was being tested in the service for a Motorbike license I wobbled all over the road,
I must have put an extra two miles on the test route :lolno:
I still passed, I think they were desperate for mugs willing to ride BSA M20s :O

Shaun, motorbikes have an engine (why are they called motorbikes? Should be enginebikes :think: )

Anyway, you're not meant to ride them like you did as a child on your bicycle. . . .

Shauns bicycle :D
