    I am doubting the 22re motor would be able to overcome the air resistance above 50mpg....


    Married myself to a wheel and tire combination. I was trying to find a 5-lug wheel that had an exposed bead-lock ring and looked all off-roady, but everything I found would have widened the track width a lot, which wouldn't have worked. These wheels are a great quality and tuck the tires nicely. I also received my interior. Looks to be very nicely detailed with injection molded dash, seats, door cards and rear wheel wells. The floors are a very thin styrene, which I won't be using anyways.

    No rear seat though. I found this odd. JsScale does not offer one on their shapeways store either. I got myself a rc4wd hilux bench which should fit the bill ookkkkaayyy-ish.

    What wheels are thoose? Carisma or CC hand. They really do tuck in well.
    I have to consider a Rcmodelex chassis for my RR. I do not like the hpi gearbox on my Rcmodelex d110, but the version from Rcmodelex might be better.

    The wheels are CC Hand.

    RcModelex chassis are really amazing, and are basically my dream chassis, except for his use of the HPI gearbox and lack of a par-hard bar mount up front. Years ago when they first began, I can understand using that gearbox since there was not many options available. Today there are so many good quality transmissions, it doesn't make much since to me.

    I believe I have found a solution with the rc4wd R2, which is one of my favorite transmissions ever made. It's really a shame they stopped making it.

    When it arrives I will see how it fits.
