Thank you !!! i needed that tip96gsfanWhich wheels are you trying to use? If they are JL or HW wheels I cut the axle in the middle. I then shorten them to length and use a piece of small diameter aluminum tubing that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. Insert the axle into the tubing and crimp the tubing to the axle. Some chassis axle slots have to be dredged to get the tubing to fit. I have also used this method to set the axles a little higher up to give the car a dropped look. Hope this helps.
