Hi guys. Newbie here. I am trying to build a 1/16 scale of my real car and I need some 1/16 torq thrust mags. Anyone know where I can find some? THX!

The closest thing to torq thrusts I can think of in 1/16 is what comes with the mustang kit. If thats what you are looking for, then maybe I can help you.

My camera is broken, so I cant take a picture of my stuff.Sorry.If you look around on line for the Revell kit, you may be able to figure out what I am talking about.

The aftermarket wheels included in the AMT '64-1/2 Mustang kit referenced above are not American Racing Torque Thrust wheels, but rather American Racing 200-S wheels, also referred to as "Daisy" or "Coke Bottle" wheels, due to the shape of the spokes.

I'll try to snap and post a pic of two when I locate the set I have...

Here are the American 200-S "Daisy" wheels included with the 1/16th scale AMT 64-1/2 Ford Mustang kit:

Note the different width and offset between the front and rear wheels in the second pic. A true set of big 'n' littles. :P

they can be made into some really neat wheels and they are easy to find. I made a set of DEEP dish ones to use in some funny car slicks! :P
