Another option for wheels is Yellow HB D4 wheels which will be a direct fit and in stock currently at Tower.

Airbrush + faskolor = no smell . I do it in the house .

Are you going to have it built in time for the first series race this Saturday ?

I love the water based paints, but the compressor noise is the problem
AMain might have moved up their ship date, but I don't think we will have kits that soon :P
