I believe these .crv3d files can be saved in V-carve format too. If anyone out there wants them let me know, and which ones. Dale

Way to go Angie! I'll have to try it myself.
Are you going to draw it up for download?

The ones I used on the cars came from:
http://www.caseyswood.com/shoppingcart/ ... ucts_id=83
I drilled out the holes to 23/64" and used 11/32" axle pegs to eliminate wobble.

Hi Dale,

Thanks. I posted the file above for download. I checked out Caseys, but I am in kind of a rush (and I like mag wheels).

Angie, I suggest using at least a 5/16" axle peg for a 2" wheel. I use 11/32" axle pegs in a 23/64" hole.
A 0.251 hole is a bit tight for a 1/4" axle and if the cars are for kids, a 1/4" axle will break too easy.
The problem with most commercial wheels and axles is wobble i.e. using a 1/4" axle in a 5/16" hole or a 5/16" axle in a 3/8"hole.
A 1/64" clearance (0.0164") is enough if you are using a Tung oil or olive oil finish.

In case anyone missed the old posts, after cutting out the parts I round the edges with a router round-over bit. The model radius corners are designed to fit the router bearing.
It is a good idea to drill a 1/16" hole at the bottom-center of the body into the axle hole to relieve air pressure, and for excess glue squeeze out when inserting the axle pegs.
Make a spacer from a plastic lid to prevent inserting the axle peg in too far. Punch a hole and cut a slit into the hole so you can just pull it out once the wheel is in place. Dale
