New Axles, Wheels and Tyres

I tried improving it with new wheels from the Tune Up Set, but the off-set on the new wheels was different. I therefore replaced the existing 49mm long axles with 44mm axle at the back and 41mm at the front made from 3/32" silver steel rod (at under 0.50 per 300mm which is 6 axles). This meant the wheels did not touch the body work at the front and did not stick out at the back.
