I'd be curious how.many parts I'd need to convert a 12. I'd much rather run wgt than stock 12. 1/10 outdrives, nain chassis, crossmember , front suspension mount, body posts? Longer standoffs?

Ooh that looks nice. If my old car wasn't so perfect I might have to get one. What wheels are those? Are they an actual, available tire or just cool looking mock-ups?
