I am using the correct wheel – the smaller 14.5mm wheel wont hold the SlotIt Nogrip tires tight. I typed the wrong size.

Eddie here, my thunderslot white kit just arrived with missing body mount screws. I need a resource on where to find the right body screws. Can I used fly body screws because I have extras on those. I have not test fit those body screws. I’m debating on the livery on my Lola coupe. I’m leaning towards this from 1968 sebring race.
I’m going to keep my tires stock and trued. I’ll be testing it this Thursday evening then will make necessary rules compliance adjustments. Looking forward to racing

Eddie, I have some spare screws. That may be safer than potentially splitting the body posts from screws with a different pitch or width. I will bring Thurs.
Tuning Action Items:
— Lightly glue rear tires on wheels.
— Carefully true off the treads on the stock/OEM rear tires.
— Optionally- Replace front wheels with Slot.It alloy 15.8×8.2 wheels (W1580-8215A, W15808225A, WH1183, WH1184, WH1210) front tires with Slot.It SIPT15 17x10mm ZeroGrips
— Add 3mm dia grub screws (Kings does Not have them) to the chassis pan to adjust body and skirt height to prevent hitting the track in the hairpin and hillclimb. See Russells earlier posts 
— Add 0.5mm spacer to guide shaft (to prevent pop-out de-slot in corners)
— Adjust axle grub screws to barely fly the front tires 0.5 to 1mm (credit card) over track.
— Experiment with adding 1-3gm weight in nose/guide area (prevent pop-out de-slot)
— These must remain stock: body, chassis, pod, pinion, crown, motor, axles
