Very Sweet I love the way the rims almost match yout 1:1 . What type are they ? I think I might want a pair of them for my Ofna. Bravo on the changes they look great.

Proline rims and tires. I cant remember the name of the rims but the tires are "knuckles" ??? They basicly are the same tread as the "badlands" which I was originally looking for. 

Thanks for looking

That is BEAUTIFUL! I appreciate guys who take great care of their rides like this! I also believe the Hyper 7 is the best looking buggy out there (just my opinion).

The only one thing I would change is that head protector. I think the heat sink is one of the coolest looking part on a nitro kit, and the tubes just seem to defeat that purpose (I liken it to plastic coveringon couches they used to do back in the day). :-)

Looks like you have the Mac* 28? I do wish it came with a proper head protector. If it helps, below is a pic of mine (without a protector) after about a gallon of fuel. I'm a little ashamed to show the pic as it's dirty, but you can see the heat sink has held up well....and I've taken this car to the wood shed and back multiple times. One day I'm going to strip the heat sinkit and re-polish it.

Seriously though, that is a georgous car. You have some skills and I'm jealous. Would love to see some vids of it out running! You did a great job.
