Very nice job Fred, and welcome aboard! :)

I've been toying witht the idea of building on of those as well...can it be built into a factory stock Charger?

Brodie,

I'm not far away from you, on the west end of the UP, any good hobby shops in Duluth?

Cheers, Ian

Um...Carr's Hobby which is a locally owned shop that's been here for many years. Not bad. Then there is a Hobbytown USA which is alright too. I wish we had a Hub Hobby Center...they have a few of those in the twin cities and they are awesome!

To the OP, which wheels are on the maroon Charger in the above pics?
