Default Shell/rim suggestions needed

Gentlemen, i need some help

I've never looked into high performance touring stuff before, and i need some help.

I'm building up an XXXS, looking to break the 60mph barrier (i have power/motor/ESC sorted), but i need some suggestions on shells and rims to use for such speeds.

I want to run foams to avoid the silly ammounts of tyre expension likely at these speeds, but i heard Jaco rims shatter? Does anyone have any bright ideas?

Currently, i'm thinking the Parma rims, but i want to be doubly sure before i spend any

As for a shell, i want something that looks like a normal car (not a Lola type shell). I read the thread and it sounds like the PL Mazda 6 may be a good choice?

If anyone is interested, i will be using a Feigao 380c 13t, an MGM 12012, using 4S Lipo packs (probably maxamps 12C 4000 packs).

Can anyone help me out here? I don't want rims disintegrating or cars lifting/flipping over lol

Parma and Jaco make foam tires that come on rims. Yes, Jaco rims do shatter easily.
