Default 4wd 1/18th Micro Truck

It's like they did it on purpose. You can take the Mini T rims and slide them right over the HPI or XRAY Micro Rims. You get a 4wd mini Truck. I'll try to attatch a few pics but dial up is all I have at home. If not then Monday. Bumpers and chassis need to "modified slightly" but it works great. Tons of stearing and traction. We ran the ribbed fronts as they were traction rolling on living room carpet. The gearing is way off now too so the motors get very hot very fast, but we'll work on that later.

Seems the picture is too big I'll work on it. But try the slip fit, we drove our's for a while with out gluing the rims.

Sorry for the bad pics. We've been jumping them across the living room for a while now.

I think Charlie just invented Micro Rally Racing. I can't wait to get a hold of some of these wheels.
