    [​IMG] still thinking of putting a center bearing in frame with 2 drive shafts in rear but I cut up some wild boars and made a long one. Still might change it but this is actually right for scale. Also I have to cut the shock towers off and weld them farther ahead on chassis. But here's a quick peek kinda everything thrown on. I'm not using those tires just a teaser. Lots to go yet.

    Are you going to go with smaller tires like your 1:1? Was your friend able to make similar rims?

    He's going to be making the same rims could be a bit I have to send him my spare and I think the ones I ordered are 96mm tall closest to a toyo for looks I could find. But once all the weights in it it sits at a nice height
    [​IMG] those are the ones I ordered.
