btw winter time when the pond freezes over would be awesome to spray paint a track and have some solid axle ice racing on it.

Tal, you're probably going to have to lengthen front and rear links, but first try moving the shock towers out to their most outside positions, and your shocks will be a bit angled and not so straight up and down. I'm using an SCX10 chassis on my 1/6 Jeep, and it has a 14.5" wb

Was thinking 2.2's as well at least biggest 1.9's. Would really look better under a wraith plat form

So when bundling links to get a specific wb length. If using the equation that 130 mm lower links = 12 inch wb. Would 160mm lower links = 14 in wheelbase ?

1" = 25.4mm
So if 130mm gives you 12" combined, 155.4mm each would give you 14"... assuming you want equal length links.
Personally, I've never measured my links. I jst build them to the body wb.
I don't think I've ever had equal length front/rear either.
