Thanks for the interest guy's. I've seen those wheels on ebay but this car came with a set of decent looking wheels. We'll see how they look after polishing. Your correct Drksyd, this car is definately not up to par with any new stuff. These cars are just pure nostalgia and that's what Tamiya is cashing in on right now with the re-releases. I've got an 80's era grasshopper and Hornet, both of which really fly with the right motors and gears in them but don't handle the best, their just fun to bomb around in the driveway with. With the design of the Super Champ it's not possible to install any motor but the old 540 can motor. I'm sure something could be done if one wanted to modify the transaxel but that's not going to happen in this case.

I test fit a proper set of tires and they look much more proper on this car then the rear end was removed in preparation for polishing.
