just because there is 10 spots does not mean i have to fill all 10 in.. sorry i could not make you happy..

yup blktransam there is always someone with a complaint.. my favorite sign i saw was.. "take a # and be seated.. when your # is called we will help you.. not all #'s will be called.." local service station...

VP pro should surely be up there, but since It was not I went with AKA. They have never failed me, just like VP pro's

Hey I just realized that the tires are glued to the wheels which are bolted to the A-arms, which are pinned to the chassis, which holds the Engine....................shouldn't this thread be in the engine section

I thought the engine was bolted to the chassis which was bolted to the wheels, which were glued to the tires, and it was all controlled by a radio. Shouldnt it be under electronics?

Hot Bodies>AKA>JConcepts>Proline

I went with Pro-Line

I find that the AKA Wheels are weak.
