Don't get your hopes up.

If you read the entire post, these MIGHT be available, only if you/we racers finance the production.

They are not in production, and...only 26mm fronts, at first, if at all.

Thumbs down Dorks

WOW I can't believe all the VTA guys that don't like these rims

Is this be cause all you play with is toy cars

I happen to have an 80 CHEVY MALIBU with these rims
And yes with the beauty rings and center caps
And we REAL CAR GUYS CALL THEM RS RIMS
Or aka RALLY SPORTS that came on 70/80s Chevys

No wonder why this class is taking so long to get going
Just throw in a few dorks that know nothing about real cars
Or real racing and this is what you get

Instead of making the pledge to help get them going you come on hear and do nothing but insult Them. WELL SHAME ON YOU !!!!


And then you cry we have no tires we have no rims we only have these bodies
No wonder

what???? i like them, but I wouldn't back the production - a) don't have the cash at the moment and b) the dude is a LONG way away from hitting his goal and he has a little over 3 weeks left...

plus, don't you think HPI might get pissed at using all their dimensions for their proprietary tires?

And how can A circle be proprietary lol

And he is so far off cause. Of thinking like this

I bet if Novak or hpi were doing this you all we be jumping on it
Or if the rest of the KEY USVTA players were pushing it
The guy would be at his goal for the 26 and the 31 mm rims


Hey ROB if the guy gets them done will they be legal rims to race with
This is the KEY ???

Actually those are just Chevy steel wheels found mostly on Chevy trucks, but also appeared on station wagons, Vans and some cars from the 50's into the 60's and 70's. the center usually housed hubcaps.


The Rally Sports you are probably thinking of are definitely different, found here on the Camaro


Then there was the "Late Model" Rally Rims popularized on the '80's Chevy's


But I'm with you, I like these "steel" wheels and they definitely help with the realism and offer a cool alternative to what's currently available.

Here's the current crop of full-size Trans Am cars...

http://www.historictransam.com/Cars.html

The only one sporting that style of wheels is the #1 Mustang in the far left-had column.

This pic was taken before I put on the rear Spoiler and I still need to cut down the rear body posts Hope ya guys like it!

Associated TC4 "Club Racer"
Novak Edge esc/25.5 spec motor combo
Savox 0254mg servo
a few FT upgrades

Man! That is one cool looking VTA! Is WCRC in SoCal where Tony Phalen races on-road? He had a Hot Bodies Cyclone with a Gulf-painted Camaro body during the ROAR Carpet Nats.
