Only thing I don't like is the rim. The dish rim is hideous. For some reason they stopped making the spoked rims.
I called FG supply today and was told they had complaints of the BBS style rims breaking,so they stopped making them. He said they may come out with a new wheel in the future.

For US drivers, Alpha RC would like to let you know that there is a strong candidate for USA Distribution just on the door ... so will have news soon ...

Here the pics, mounted on Kyosho Cars during the weekend test sessions in Brazil :

When are they going to be available in the US again? Are they going to make street radial pre-mounts as well?

Kyosho tyre on self-painted Kyosho black multispoke rims, just for the show; it's ok tyre but rather expensive for real use...

I'm just looking what you guys are running in the US. (I'm from Slovenija)
Here the GT class is much more evolved so the companies don't concentrate on the looks of things but just the performance, that's why they have such rims.

Ok,

Factory just sent me couple pics showing the new wheels after the test sessions and the tyres that suffered some slight modification on compound.

This is a SOFT tyre, after 15 straight race-pace tanks. Car used was a Kyosho GT2 with GO Engines .21 5 port engine :



















Wheels received a good amount of smashes during the tests on weekend, and never got a breakage or anything ... as you can see on pics, that wheels are marked of punishment lol !!!

cya !!!

From the looks of the hex/axle and wheel it looks like they received a LOT of abuse!!!!!!!

Were you the driver Pato????
