no that is staying, no worries..

I never really was happy with the interior, and now I have to fit more in it, so I am going to try a few things.

I had a couple questions about your wheel/hub setup. How far off were the holes between the JConcepts wheels and the Vanquish hubs? Would it be possible to drill the holes in the center caps so they would still work? And what width hubs are you running?

Thanks,
Dusty

I jusy drilled out the holes and they lined up.

R2j used the caps in his rig, so I assume everything should work fine

I have a complete Aluminum tranny case'd hurst dig, axial tranny sitting here doing nothing.

If you want feel free to send me the rig and I'll install it






Really if you need to use it and replace it later I can ship it to you.

Like Andy said. I took the cap that comes with the wheels and then cut the cap part off leaving just the ring to strengthen the wheel. On my set up, I went a little further and cut the hex off completely leaving the back of the wheel smooth. Then I opened up the center hole so the VP hubs flange fits snug in the plastic. I run 725's in front and 600's in the rear, but going to try 850's in the front and the 725's in the rear now.

I'll keep it in mind, black or silver?

If I need to borrow one for now though, its probably smarter to just steal it out of my Hybrid.

sometimes in life, the easy way out, turns out better in the end…

need to modify the dash, and obviously mount it, but now I have room for a dig, and I think it looks better than my seats that sat to high before.

That's the interior from the HPI mini trophy right?

Looks good! and it's only a couple points difference from a full 3D interior, you'll be able to make it up elsewhere...
