I have one also, though not in nearly as nice a shape as yours...great looking car! Do like those wheels, just wish Kyosho has made them the same scale as the rest of the car.

I had one too, never had those wheels though, sweet. I ran some off the Tamiya Celica as they were the closest I could get hold of.

Sadly I had to sell it when times were tough, still regret it now.....

I have the body set as well, no chassis but I was lucky enough to snag a set of those wheels when you could still buy them at the LHS. My body set is still in the box it came in. Yours really looks good. I wish I could come up with some fatter tires for the rims, it would be much more scale looking.

A set of HPI "super" wheels look perfect under there - they are slightly bigger than 1/10. I have an older set of Kyosho Super-10 wheels under mine and they look perfect.

Default cobra

thanks for the compliments they are haldibrand wheels that came on the real cobra..i think i spelled it correct .these wheels actually have spinners for it too but they look not to scale and the spinners spin on and i not sure that they will keep the wheels on and i am not risking it .until i figure out a way to put them on after the wheel nut.and i jus restored the body of the car .it had a small crack in it on the right side front.considering you cannot get the bodies anymore.btw i am open to buying any parts for this car as i am keeping it ...its my all time favorite car
