Default Associated RC10 B4 CUSTOM WHEELS

Just finished machining and polishing these! Thought I'd take a picture before Freddy Fast Times drives me off the track and destroys them!

Nice looking rims. How long did it take to make them?

Wow! What material? And how'd you manage to mount the foams?

Pretty bling!

It took WAY longer than I'd like to admit to make these! They are aluminum. The fronts are only 1/8oz heavier than the plastics, but the rears are about 2x heavier. I made a jig to mount the foams. The tire stretches over the jig, then I CA the rims, and slide over the wheels. I touch up the glue around the edges for a solid adhesion.

FF- Right on. See you Saturday! [:-]

I really like how those turned out. Look sharp but not sure if I would run them only since you take a chance at something happening to them..
