well heres the final thing{i think}...

XC chassis,so it will be 4wd,but i can always remove the front dogbones if i wanna have some donut fun or something...

planning on cutting up hpi vintage rims,and using semi tires,cut...should look badass when done,ill post up pics as it progresses...

I could be wrong but is it not just thin sheet styrene or durlin that has been glued and formed into the shape of a cowl?
