TOPIC: My 2011 Avante

My 2011 Avante 7 months 3 weeks ago #54319

I’ve had my Avante (mostly) built up for a while, but as yet haven’t run it. Recently got a little brainstorm for a subtle mod, let see who spots it first!

Very nice ;) Narrowed front's look awesome :) How did you do?
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Thanks, wasn’t too hard. First I cut the wheels in 2 just inside the inner mounting rib. Then I machined the parts flat with a drill press: down to 10mm for the knee mounting ring and 18 mm for the outer halves. A fan of acetone on the machined areas before joining them back together and then epoxy around the joint (hidden by the tire) for strength. Effectively took 8mm out of the width to fit the supershot tires.

I really wanted to keep the stock wheel look.

Somehow I didn't spot the front tires. I thought your mod was just removing the cross braces between the shocks. :)

Haha, that’s not a mod. It’s just laziness!

Got tired of keeping it as purely a shelf queen... decided to make a B74 hunter out of it! Lol not totally serious but I am going to track it so I changed a few things up:
