Default Kyosho Wheels

Has anyone tried to dye the Kyosho wheels? Thinking of try to use boiling water and RIT dye. Maybe Kyosho Red would be cool.

Yes! I died a set blue, because I run baby blue on my paint scheme, but ended up leaving it in too long, and it came out dark blue. Then I decided I could fix them by dying them black, but black only works over white, so they came out dark purple... so I have a set of brand new, very dark purple wheels I will never use.

I died my set twice, and they didn't change in the slightest. (just under boiling)

The stockies work great, but I personally run the blue x-rings from traxxas.

I bit the bullet and snagged an RB6. Looking forward to a new platform as AE is all I know

Am I correct in saying that none of the other 10th scale offroad platform has been updated to the 'RB6' platform yet? I would like to eventually get a second class.
