Hi steve
There the same as the rear ones
To be honest the silver one is from the back ( the standard one)
The black one is the upgraded one
a while ago I got a job lot of parts
So if you need them they are there

On the ball now, just had a look and the standard front axles have got a posi drive srew on the inside.

On both our cars we have fitted the rear ones on the front, no probs, been like that for years.

Measured one of the posidrive axles and they are 4mm and have a shoulder.

On certain wheels yes, some wheels are a bit wider.
6R4 rally / rally cross shell, looks right good.

It's not just the wheels being a bit wider it's also the offset, some stick out more, if they are more offset they will be closer to your suspension parts.

Less offset will stick out more... so 5mm will be closer than -3mm offset.

Pretty sure they used to.
I would try emailing them with your requirements.
Contacted a nice helpful girl Maria I think, very helpful.

Hey guys, been trolling this thread, tho I've skipped a lot of pages.  I feel really bad for y'all. What a miserable experience. Certainly, I may have missed them, but I never came across any pictures of your Subarus.  Did any get posted?  I love WRC, and I own a real WRX.  I also put a Tamiya WRX body on my DTX Evader. So naturally this thread caught my eye.  I kept hoping I'd see a picture of one of yours.

Not to put anyone down, but, I think this is a silly way to go about building an RC. (The bloke who said it was "a brilliant marketing scheme" must've meant brilliant for the company rakin' in all the money.)  I mean really, if I wanted to build a kit, I'd buy a kit, an have it built in a week. A week. As in ONE.  Not 55!!  That's over a YEAR!  No way in hell I could wait that long.  don't mean to rub salt, tho...... Good luck.

I wouldn't do it again, too impatient, only reason for doing it is my then wife said I needed to learn to have patience.
It was fun building it up though and did teach me a bit of patience.
There are pics with Subaru shells, will try to find some.

If you add up how much we spent on these from the start and including modifying it would be quite a lot.

Hi all,
Most Bycmo parts can now be obtained AGAIN [at long last] from www.sbc.gb.com but you won't find anyone there called Maria. Company is UK based.

A new section is being added [within the next two weeks] to their web site to allow you to 'purchase on line'.

Hi Guys, I have found you surfing on the internet, weird to see what a great job you've done with these Bycmos!
I've just purchased two to try a conversion to rally cars. But in Spain nobody trust them: everbody say: buy a tt-01! But i still want to try it and you are the reference. 

I've first purchase a ESC , and now I'm installing it. 
I´d like to ask you the best way to avoid this trend to skid 180º  so abruptly
Sorry for my poor english! 

Did anyone see the 2CV body for this chassis? looks great.
