I love this JL GTO casting (thanks shop-teacher!) but the wheels have always bothered the crap out of me. They’re too thin and the wrong type. MB 5 spokes to the rescue!

Even though this is a somewhat rare and expensive casting, this had to be done. It only took a little filing on the sides of the chassis to make the axles fit perfectly, and the results are better than I’d hoped. Now this looks more like a GTO.

Here’s mine for comparison:

Not exact, but close enough and way better. Now if only it was torrid red instead of pulse red...
