That said, the swap isn’t entirely perfect, as you may have noticed the front wheels sticking out some.

It would have been a snug fit otherwise, but as it turns out the stock wheels cleared the plastic bits connecting the windscreen and windows with the headlights. The Real Riders... do not, meaning that only the rear wheels can spin freely. The suspension still works, but the increased wheel size means there isn’t much room for travel.

However, it wasn’t going to go down a track anyway, and the improved appearance is certainly worth it.
