    Well since I'm going for accuracy Im going with a new custom built chassis designed for the IFS Tacoma. Will include new custom made 2 speed gearbox. All made by Mfab. Now I'm gonna have to find or make King shocks with remote reservoir. :eek:

    I finally had time to fix the big gap above the headlight. My eyes were always drawn right to it. :annoyed:

    Mfab made the racks and sent me extra mirrors, headlights and tail lights so I could customize them.

    I've been following the shipping of my custom wheels from Russia to Oregon. Took 3wks to get to NY. Then another week to Portland Oregon on Monday. About 100 miles away. Thinking they would be here by Wednesday I checked and they were shipped so southern Oregon. Just figured it was loaded on wrong truck and I'd get it today. Well today I checked and they are in Southern California 1200 miles away. :rant:

    Thanks, These are prototype 1.9" . At 1/9 scale that's a 17" wheel which is perfect. It's amazing what some people can do with computer programming and the right machinery.

    SCX10ii is pretty versatile. :) 330 mm wheel base. I would think you could stretch to 370+ mm with longer links and driveshaft(s).
