SlotDiver wheels-super light weight


I guess this goes into the catagory of "interesting new product that you can't get in the US"... Slotdiver wheels.

(Publishers note: I've copied the text in the original Spanish and translated using Babelfish. Translator programs often do a poorjob and I wanted to leave the original so you could see the original. I also converted the photos to black and white to be able to see more detail.)

Funny you should mention Babblefish. It's a favourite of Bart Brown's, too; only he likes to convert each way just to see what comes out the other end.

Thing is, I now have something in common with you and Bart. Something to do with Proxy Racing, and not properly comprehending the rules. For now, that's all I'm saying, no doubt I will find myself disgraced in public all too soon ...

Meanwhile, those look like nice wheels. You gotta wonder just how damn difficult it is to make plastic wheels that are actually round; like the fronts on a Slot.it or the rears on a TSRF. Instead, we end up spending silly amounts of money on magnesium things (and then some of us plaster paint all over the inserts so what's the point eh?).

Well Paul, I've been using the plastic press-on wheels from Slot It for a while now, they're nice and round....

Generally... SlotIt plastic wheels are nice and round however I remember when the first Nissan 390 Road-car hit the stores and many people had issues with the rims. Unique to SlotIt they actually cared that users were finding problems with the wheels so the manufacturer agreed to replace those defective rims.

And messed up they were. I never got around to getting new ones from Slot.it. I cut up the wheels to get the inserts out, and then put them in metal wheels.

There appears to be a second model of plastic wheels. A lighter colored plastic appears to be used on the new ones. Those are the wheels on the front of my GPR car.... the darker plastic wheels are the older ones I think. The older plastic wheels inserts were tough to remove. The newer wheels I think may be harder plastic (the wheels I've used recently) and the inserts pop out easily.

I guess I should do a post about the wheels.
