    plaplates, zoids blox connectors and some little putty.
    also notice it could rotate in bot mode so it does not hinder the shoulder movement.

    Well the Styrene is no problem but I can't find a set of zoid connectors like them loose, This would fix the constant tear downs I've done on my dragstip's dual front end...

    Got any spares? lol

    That must be perhaps the best Dragstrip I've seen.
    Looks fantastic!
    Great having the extra wheels, the head works great and the Sideswipe parts is such a clever idea.

    Dragstrip is dope!!! Wonder why no Garage Company never did an upgrade for this guy? New head, extra weapon & new wheels seems so doable.

    Just found this. Dragstrip is awesome! I recently purchased a second exclusive Dragstrip so I could perform my long anticipated dual wheel surgery and make DS the way Hasbro should have done in the first place.

    In searching for references to work from with the figures I have of him, I have so far only seen two and Ryan's didn't have the flip down wheels option, but I like the idea of being able to fold them or not if I choose.

    Do you have a tutorial thread on here to sort of explain out or show in detail, how to go about removing the wheels, reattaching them on the "plate" and creating the pivot for flip down in bot mode without having them flop around when he is picked up in car mode? I believe that could be of great assistance in adapting for my own version of DS...if you wouldn't mind?

    Again, awesome job with these. I'm not a fan of the Cheetor toy in general, but I certainly appreciate the talent and work that went into the Tigatron as well. Kudos!
