Fantastic build! As already said it looks like a new build rather than a car built from used parts 8) Love those wheels - very bright!!!

I've got the thin shock collers on my new-build car, they are quite hard to find, intact without splits etc (which is why i've ended up with 2x black & 2x grey collers on my car :roll: ) so its good that you are replacing them on this car for the wider & more robust collers & saving the thin ones for the 'shelfer' :wink:

Really nice build. The chassis looks great.

One thing you have to watch out for when using those trinity wheels is that the fronts are 2.0. Most of the fronts out there are 2.1 or even 2.15. I wound up using fronts from a tamiya striker/falcon when I used those wheels on mine...since I wanted the standard rib vs. spike tires.
