Well, The 280 ZX wheel choice was tough but it came down to two sets. Firstly, Black RS Watanabe.
Offset is +12 with -2mm on the front hub. so effectively +10 up front and +12 rear.
But While I was in the hobby store yesterday I saw these Yokomo long-champs. Perfect!
But Yokomo wheels SUCK! Really! They have STUPID design features.
- Limited space for the drive hub. It's only 2mm deep
- Tyre mounting area with a non flat profile. This means you cant use simple o-rings.
- Offset is +12 but actually they are only +10mm, so you need to use a spacer but can't because of point 1.
I also upped the camber to +10 on the front and ran the Kazama Premium tyres for a little more clearance an the champs and Spice reversibles on the Watanabes.
Other final touches included a Hong Kong $10 Hobby Pro light kit. It looks awesome lit up. I have two spare... I might mount some CIBIE style driving lamps.
An old yokomo muffler was added and a bunch of stickers made their way onto the car, the BRE style stripes were pulled off for the final version. The Number Plates were installed and I reset the rear wing height. Also a red straw roll cage. I can't say the body is Orange. It Blood Orange.
I packaged it up in another bag. the body is so long it doesn't fit into my RC bag...
Then GO!!! to MAX ONE.
