    No big updates to report,however,I did order the tires and they should be at the store Friday waiting for me to pick them up.
    Once I have the tires in my hands I will choose rims,brakes and finalize the rest of the landing gear mods....

    Hey, if the Nancos don’t work out don’t blame me! Besides, I’m
    Into them for the same amount of cash as you are! Gotta love Wallymart! Really! Who wooda think they’d be getting stol tires from Walmart? I read on the Kitfix site that several guys were running this tire and seemed happy with them. The only complaint was windage drag. Inflated they are 12” at widest point. $33 bucks a tire. . . R u kidding me? That’s about $234 bucks per tire cheaper than those Aero Classics from ASS.

    Keep in mind that what you see on Walmart.com is NOT being sold by Walmart! The Walmart web store has become sort of a poor man's Amazon.

    Hey guys.....I really appreciate everyone that is following my build thread but I would like to ask that if anyone has comments that we use private message or start a new thread to discuss the topic.
    It's nice to look through everyone's build logs on HBA and not see all of the conversations that get sidetracked from the original build thread....it just keeps the thread on track,clean and easier to follow.
    Thanks for understanding.....

    Well,I picked up my new tires today and they are a sight.....
    Cant wait for my rims so I can get these things mounted and inflated.
    They should swell up considerably when some pressure is thrown to them.....
    Can you say ....TUNDRA TIRES
