Next question/comment...

I still cannot get used to these cab forward (IMHO "stealth fighter") bodies. Has anyone heard if there are any "traditional" bodies in the works? Something a little more like the original B4 body?

Back in the day we used to drill holes in the rims, but we didn't use foam and our tires were never glued so it wasn't as big of an issue.
air does not move through closed cell foams the way it does in open cell. If you dont have holes in the tire with an open cell foam you can trap air between the foam and the tire and it can feel bouncy. just gives another spot for air to go.

is your tire touching the scale? if so, it will throw off the numbers. Also it will be thrown off by not centering the weight on the scale.

While on topic of holes in tires, when do you do it in the rim. And when do you do it on the tire? What difference does it make? Or does it not make a difference?

No its not. Also on this scale it read the same far right or far left or center. I can take another pic if needed but the tires are not touching

my only concern would be the threads sticking out the front of the front tower. more likely to catch on something and snap the tower. I wonder why lunsford made them so long.

I believe those bodies are here to stay.

Yeah I totally agree. I'm going to put some ball stud washers behind the nut to take up that slack.

He used the wrong nuts. I used the flanged nuts and they are a perfect fit.
