Well, I ordered mine, but the tire and rims were out of stock.

Whats comparable to a pink or magenta rear???

I believe that there is a complete set of 6 rims in the box, 6 front & 6 rears if I saw that correct on earlier pictures...

correct Joost! kit comes with 6 frt/rear but no tires. I am using crc but will convert the rear axle to 12r5.1 so I might be selling the unmounted yoke rims. Since one is already mounted I have 5 of both. I don't know how you guys can mount those foams and true it.... I hate mounting foam

With servo mounts on my koPropo 951, I found out it does not line up with the servo holes its slightly large! What JR model are you using and is it a mini or micro? What is ther dimension? thanks

Where is everyone getting their parts??
I'm yet to come accross the first shop that has the lower whishbones of the front suspension on stock...

Also, how are the yokomo tires doing?? Is there really nobody that knows?? Does Yokomo has a forum or anything that at least i can ask what compound/ shore I've bought before glueing them.

that has got to be one of the nicest wheel design for a 1/12th scale car in a long time. Looks almost like a 1/8th scale land missile.
