What is the intended purpose of the small holes on the inside of the SC Rulux wheels, other than to trap dirt that gets in the wheel inside the tire? Is it possible to change the molds and flash over the smallest holes?

I've been wrapping my wheels in electrical tape to cover the moulded in holes, and venting the tires with a decades old RCPS hole punch.

Some racers like to glue the inner side wall to the wheel for added support and the holes allow for this; venting the tires is still needed regardless of the holes. We really haven't seen or heard any concerns regarding the holes until your post. There are no plans to change the mold to cover the holes.

Will the 12mm Hex adapters work for the new SC10 RS front hubs?

Not the current rear hex adapters; we do have the correct alloy hexes (narrower hex) in the works for the front though

I mentioned to Jason at the Alabama race that the new wheels made it alot easier to get water in the tire when washing. Esepcially when cleaning any mud or loam out of the inside of the wheels.
