Those look like some slot car wheels I'm working with and I'm pretty sure I see a pickup shoe hiding under there. Wish I could find some fronts like that, I only have rears.

Roadskare and Hobie, yes those are slotcar wheels. That's also a resin body I cast from the HW's version. I had to move ther rear fenderwells forward to get the wheelbase to align. Thanks 41W.....RM
