Hi guys,

I know i'm prolly gonna get flamed, but i have a smartech 'Magic wheel'.
Does anyone know if any upgraded parts are available or what upgraded parts from other manufacturers will fit??

Supposedly, it is a clone of a Traxxas T-Maxx (probably the 2.5). I would check at Traxxas.com and look up the parts listing for the T-Maxx and see if it looks anything like yours. Good thing about Traxxas, the parts are everywhere!

The Magic Wheel is a 1/10 scale, not a largescale. You'll probably find better info on www.rcnitrotalk.com
You know what!?? i was told that by the guy in my now local hobby shop! on the box it's said that the magic wheel is a 1/8 scale truck.. am i not correct??
An dthis is what the website says... "This is the off road Magic Wheel monster truck kit. This model is a massive 1:8 scale kit which is bulkier and bigger than the standard 1:10 scale ones.

can i claim that they should send me a new 'proper' 1/8 scale machine??

The Chinese always see things bigger than they really are in regards to RC. I would check out www.rcnitrotalk.com and see if any of those guys can steer you. Looking at a pic of it, it looks like a T-Maxx clone.

The Magic Wheel or Snap-On truck is a poor copy of the original T-Maxx. Before they widened it up to make the T-Maxx 2.
