      Dude....where have all these bad ass cars been hiding?

      I have seen at least 5 cars posted here that I hav enever seen before! Very cool.

      Jeebus, I went to AME's site but I could not find your wheels. They do have a wheel that looks similar but yours have six points and the wheels on their site have seven.

      vmaxx ~1/2 way up in the rear, ~2/3 up w/o helpers (to clear wheel) in the front
      needs to be spaced out about 5mm in the front for better susp. clearance and a bit more in the rear for a better stance.

      That was my whole goal!

      There's so many "what would this look like" threads/pic requests I figured we'd make a whole thread with pictures and put it all in one spot
