Of course, the heavier wheels carry momentum better.

The chrome wheels look great. Especially with spinners. Don't forget to add aribags and fuzzy dice.

Unfortunately, spinners and air suspension haven't yet been scaled down to 1/10th yet lol. Or fuzzy dice. But they do have those stupid truck nuts......

Air suspension would be quite a cool tuning feature tho....

I knew it was possible. I just didn't think anyone would take the time to do it. I use to build pretty elaborate show cars. I build street truck with a little sound system in it. The I put four 4" speakers in the bed and I used servos to lift and lower the suspension to make it look like it had hydraulics. I built it for a customer to match his real truck, which I also built. It was in Autosound and Security magazine back in 1999, or around that time.

I have a set that I used on my Savage long ago when it had a Cadillac Escalade body on it.
