But has anyone seen one of Cobra's shells :lol: Makes Mr Lexan shells worth a lot more than they were to start with :wink:

Pro-Line Dirt Hawgs are the most obvious option, although the final drive ratio will drop due to the larger outer diameter of those tires compared to a "normal" tire. There are other street treads that Pro-Line has, but I haven't kept track of them lately, since I stopped bashing once I started racing. I think Duratrax also has some street treads (at least for short course rims they do...not sure about 2.2" buggy rims).

Made a few updates to this old girl of late. Added a new shell, wing, delrin bulkheads and caps, new motor mount, new layshaft and slipper components, just wanted to make it a bit more mine, be racing her next week now as i can't make this weeks meet, and, that reminds me, gotta go pay a lovely guy here for some AE teflons he's sent me for this car.

Delrin bulkheads *and* caps? Or just delrin bulkheads? Or are they the YR4 nylon bulkheads? I'm confused...

Very nice regardless, and I like the front wing. Some Tenth Technology Predator action going on there ;)

Rheinaldo, i used the YR plastic bulkheads and black caps buddy, going to send of my mag ones to be blasted too though, that way i have a few spare.
Ah, the front wing, its more a bit of protection, for the tower, and the planned carpet ill be running on, i won't rip it, and, hopefully not dig my tower in and snap it lol. I think ill need some of your CF towers in time buddy.

Haha, flu i can paint, but not to this level, had it done by a top man on Oople! The wing is a Mikes racing products affair, bought a few a while back!
Front wing is a piece of undertray cut up, easy fix, thanks for the compliments buddy, i do try, hopefully a vid soon of a carpet meet, nothing crazy or flash, but an easy break in after around 15 years plus away from the hobby!
