A cat is born...

A cat evolves...!

What lurks in the shadowy streets late at night in the dark of Gotham City?

Hey Maximo, can you tell me where to get those front wheels? So cool!!!! I'm into thingies, especially the original ones. I'm contemplating building one but with a couple of contemporary upgrades.

Thanks for the compliment!

Many hours spent combing the Internet has resulted in finding rare gems like these! The wheels were bought separate from the O-Rings.
The wheels were bought from a vendor I can't remember and the O-Rings are Tamiya made for the Mini 4WD cars that they produce.

I will ponder the vendor and get back to you, but might also be Tamiya.

Found these!

Also, beware not to purchase "Ringless" types. Look for the term "with Plastic". I usually removed the cheap plastic that leaves a groove and replace them with rubber O-Rings.
