Colors = nice.

 

Rolling stock = (with all due respect) ugh. 

 

Just not my cup of tea, but to each his own.  That's what makes the world go 'round.

I like it a lot myself. What are the wheel centers from? They look like Turbines (not sure that's the correct name) from the DOH kit. Great idea on them, whatever they are.

looks good, just don't go with the Japanese 'VIP' Style angled wheels. (put them on straight instead).

It's also called HellaFlush  (Narrow tires stretched on wide rims, wheels tucked under the fenders and lots of camber):

It should look different with this body style.

It's sort of a spin off of the flush, fitted, poke, stretch, cambered, etc...style. Demon camber...

well love the paint and wheels , very fresh .. the omni camber .. hmm doesnt do it for me on a model a at first i thought it was just a rough dry fit :) well for me i would say some camber would be nice but this extreme ... but that said (was just my taste speaking) just do it , because we dont need to push people in boxes and well if we all did the same it would be boring .. just have fun i'd say :)

so i'm sitting here wondering how that works from a purely mechanical point of view.... the front axle would be fairly easy to modify to accomplish that stance, but the rear.....
