Hey guys,

Trailing Arms will need to be moded for the wheel shaft insertion.

Towerhobbies has some items but are expensive. search by part #s GPW8->14
They also have the HOR plastics search by HOR - decals , parts trees

Steering head $21 2 bearings and adjustable shaft(not the whole head)
Chrome frame $18 disk brakes, frame, stand,rear trailing arm
Lightend flywheel $11 makes the (makes the front wheel heavy for better Gyro effect)
High grip tires $22 black rims and stickier tires foam inserts
