What are the specs of the wheels on the Green beastie?

Are you going to be doing the work to the Blue one yourself?! (If your handy with the welder you can help me finish the mini :lol: )

The wheels on the "Green Beasty" are 6x13 CX1360 offset et18 Alloys. Not made anymore.

Not handy with a welder I am afraid but it looks like I am going to have to learn damn fast Te He.

Good with a spray gun though. :wink:

Well to answer " wrong thread Tim" I will more than likley put it onto my Green Chevette as that is not as sweet. I will then have 2 spare engines. One I will keep "just incase" and the other will have to go.

'wrong thread' bah - i just like to give you moddies something to do! besides - if we all posted in the right threads and kept everything on topic we'd never have anything to talk about :P
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through

i bought a complete 7.5 cooper setup for my mini, hub + shafts etc for 75 notes. haha.

Then went on to sell for 130, which i thought was a bargin. I also bought a right hand tank for my mini for 70 quid from a show. Then went on to sell on ebay for 140.

They are getting more expensive. I only sold my a year ago. Its getting to the point where the alloy 4 pots mini spares sell to fit under 10's are just as cheap
I ain't getting in no plane!
