thanks for the comments guys. No progress right now. Funding ran out before I could get my machined goodies and braided line. I have taken a break from the hobby for a while. I've had to stay on top of my studies. Hopefully I'll make some head way this winter.

I am going to be hitting the drawing board again, for the wheels and tires. This time I am going to start with the tires, and then move to the wheels. I've been talking to a machinist who works almost completely in scale parts. He says that this is the way to tackle it. So I am looking for suggestions on wheel/tire combo's. If this were a real world car. It would have a TT LS7 so we are talking close to 1000 at the wheels. I want something that is going to look good and be able to hold the power. My original wheels called for 11" wheels out back and 8.5" up front. Maybe a 18/19 combo. Suggestions with pictures would be great. I want this build to be as realistic as possible.

Are you sticking with the original wheel design or are you going with another? It's going to get a lot of attention once it's done.

I have yet to decide. I like the colored center. I am open to suggestions. Just be sure to provide some eye candy to back it up!

Well, I've started getting back into it. Decided to change the wheels up. they are forgeline WC3p's

The are smaller than the other wheels I had designed. I'll show some pictures of where I am at with the wheels in just a bit. they will start out as a multi piece design at first to ensure symmetry in the spokes. then the resin "spokes" will be attached to the outer ring, and the center, then I will drill the holes for the bolts for the the center. The master will be sent out so sleeves can be machined.

Yeeeah! Those wheels will go nicely, especially if they're detailed well. Maybe a brushed, medium gray/gunmetal center would set the exterior color off and go with the grill. Just my thoughts though.

well here is where I am at. I am waiting for a bit, so I have several items to make molds of at once before I start pouring the RTV. you can see the outter ring and the spoke that will be copied so that they are all exactly alike
