Have Bronco corrected the different wheel diameter problem originally found by Terry Ashley?

Steve I very much doubt that any changes to the actual model have been made, it to be a straight re-release, all be it by a different company. I did just take a look at the review you mention and could not see where the wheel size is questioned? I should say that I rarely look at other reviews in order to avoid my opinions being coloured by them. In this case you have raised concerns about the front wheel size and I have no idea what the correct size should be, how much difference do you believe them to be out by?

Look in Terrys review of Bronco CB35172. Included in the part on front wheel steering is a section which talks about problems with different sized roadwheels. He says that technically they are correct but that on the model they do present a problem with having all wheels in contact with the tracks. I just wondered if Bronco had come up with a solution

Sorry Steve I understand what you are asking about now. You mean the road wheels for the tracks. If I understand what Terry has said in his review the wheels are different size due to the wheels with the exterior rubber tyre not being compressed and so making them the same size as the steel wheel. The result is that you have wheels that are accurate scale wise, but are different sizes. I will check when I get home, but I suspect the issue is still present and not something I picked up.

I see wheels being spun on a drill with sandpaper in my future.
