Hasbro RC Jeep wheel adapters?
 
First I am a new recruit on the 1/6th scale Armor scene and loving it. I am an avid large scale 90 to 100" wingspan RC 1/5 & 1/6th scale WWII airplane builder & flyer, so this stuff ties in.
I am converting a Hasbro 4X4 to RC with Axial front & rear axles. I am not clear as to how to adapt the Hasbro stocl Jeep rims to the hex nut drive axles on the Axial SC10 and other axles. Any ideas would be appreciated as well as the correct leaf springs so the jeep remains scale.
Thanks for any help.

Call up the morters......

The exact thing your wanting to do has been done. Go to the sites I have listed below and using the search, look for Jeep Willys. I have done a RC conversion to one as well but I did not use the stock wheels.

New Wheels for Hasbro 4X4 RC
 
Thank you for the help. What wheels did you use? Was this for an RC running stock Jeep?

Thanks again

No mine is a custom rock crawler. I used wheels for RC from RC4wd.
Here are some pics, hope I don't get yelled at as this is not Wor related.

That's a nice jeep, war related or not. I'm about ready to paint my kubelwagen RC conversion, and am wanting to redo the wheels. Last night I got it all put together and did a test run and the wheels had a little bit of a wobble. The RC axles I used have a 12mm hex, so if i figure something out I'll let you know gunfighter. For my KDF Typ 87 that will use a 1/6 Herbie Beetle body I'll be using probably the same RC chassis that I used in my kubel, but will be sourcing the wheels and tires from RC4wd. I've found a tire there that is a close match to the Schwimmwagen and Type 87 tire, but will have to cosmetically modify some of the RC4wd aluminum or beadlock wheels.

And welcome to the Sixth Army Group and the hobby!

Jamie,
Thanks, Yep that is a cool Jeep and one of mine may hit the rocks as well so I can stay in the mix.
I have a Kubbelvagon as well in the box. It will undergo the TC surgery as well.

I got mine on Amazon for super prices, but I think they are tapped out.
Let me know what you use for wheels.

Thanks again, load the morters....
