Yeah, it would be cool if the Method 701 Element plastic wheel was made in aluminum. If you haven't seen them yet, Locked Up RC now makes a wheel that is similar in design they call "Texas Gold". I haven't looked up the price yet, but these wheels sure do look good!

Yeah, first thing I did when LockedUpRC posted that new color was price out a set - and text my buddy that I was thinkin' of rewarding myself using my profit sharing check.

But, I already have SO many wheels and tires, the vast majority not even mounted yet - I probably have 3 sets per vehicle at this point!

Really trying not to buy any more expensive wheels, or any more at all for that matter - but...

I do have a cheap set of HobbySoul beadlocks coming that are a design I have never seen before - a China wheel that is not a copy, AND is genuinely good-looking!

They will get a set of JConcepts Tusks in the 4.75" size - I searched high and low and found some in stock at a mom & pop LHS.

They are currently SOMEWHERE in my damn complex's package locker - I got the delivered notification, but NO code to tell me which locker they are in.

Gonna try to get them tomorrow morning.

Posting up a pic to show @twade984 somethin' about the Ecto rocker/slider design - circled area is the flared bit to strengthen and envelope the front mount for the trailing arms:

Ah yes the trailing arm mounts… thanks for taking a look for me anyway.
