Default vintage gasser rc car

alright im just about ready to start building somethin that ive been thimkin of for many years, its a straight axle leaf spring vintage gasser, im gona use the bruiser frame and bruiser rearend and the knight hauler 18 weeler front straight axle and leaf springs to hold the straight axle on and for the motor im probaly gona use a 550 motor or somethin i might even use the transmission out of a tamiya highlift (il change the gearing to make it faster but itll be a nice touch to bang threw the gears on an electric rc car), for the body im gona use a 55 chevy hard body. please give me youre opinion on this thanks eric, heres a pic of what it will look like when im done

WOW! I just looked and drooled while watching the video's of them running. Man would that be fun to build up. Click the bottom where it says Click here to view the video of the 23 "T" and Cobra that car is sweet! Thought it was real at first. Thanks for the link!
