Project TopCad
Gonna build my first Land Rover D90 hard body...with mostly TopCad products from asiatees.com

starting with the frame rails. Stock SCX10 frame rails I got from Terry (aka 4mods)...then painted them Silver.

its a "...mostly TopCad..." build. these wheel are too nice not to put under a D90! LOL

but i do have a kick ass set of High Mass wheels that would look great under there as well. I'll be sure to share a photo of the TopCad wheels on there as well once i'm done.

RE: Project TopCad
High mass wheels do look cool. Only 30 screws for each wheel lol. I want another set for one of my crawlers. I have 2.2's and want some 1.9's so i can compete in the 1.9 crawler class

Looking good. Those vanquish wheels look the goods but I bet they cost a pretty penny.

the cost is high, about $200 for the set (4), but i won these in a Video contest, otherwise i would never own them. and don't forget about the $50 shipping cost from the US to Canada! TopCad aluminum wheels are equal quality and a fraction of the cost...plus free shipping!

i'm sure more wheel choices will be available from TopCad as time passes...maybe they could make a copy of these ones (hint hint)
