Hi,
I am looking into customizing some maisto models but I do not know how to remove the old wheels. Does anybody know how I can get them off without harming the car?

check down the forums a bit theres a conversion tips and tricks forum.. might already be in there ... :)
Mik, Every Maisto I've ever had had wheels that kind of press fit on a spindle with a nylon bushing inside the wheel. On the straight axle, they just pop off. On the
front, I put a screw driver a little smaller than the hole in the steering knuckle, (where the wheel pivots) and pull the wheel off. Sometimes the bushing stays inside the wheel, sometimes it stays on the spindle. Hope this helps. . .
