Haven't priced it out, but pretty sure it would cost near enough what the 12R6 kit runs... Chassis, rear pod, entire front end, servo mount, etc... if it wasn't as expensive, I would think it would have to be close.

Way easier to just get the R6 kit itself.

Ok, finally got mine on to carpet. Used the old set I’d run outdoor in summer. Worked to start. But was traction rolling easy if I wasn’t careful. Carpet is a new surface for me. Never glued sidewalls before. Or really seen them done. How far up the sidewall does one glue.

You'll want to glue from midway up the sidewall to the ledge between the sidewall and driving surface on the front. If you need more, you can glue down to the wheel so the whole sidewall is glued, to make it stiffer.
