Default 17mm Driftwheels 1/8 cars. GT / Buggy. Outside, Asphalt

I really like to drift with my Buggy i have modify to street style
also my new HPI Maverick 1/8 4s

Both cars has 17mm hex buggy size wheels.

I would like to have something great, that also looks good.

There is only one that have made these in whole world.
Xzeed or something
And they are never in stock anymore.

So you need 3d print them self sadly.

Now i wonder
What material is strong and will last to heavy weight 1/8rigs ?
Hard plastic style like 1/10 drift tyres, these cars weight atleast 2-3x more than 1/10 drifters.

I would love to have them black also. Fully black




here is one ugly design.
is there better design?

Most important what material to use ?

https://pinshape.com/items/7682-3d-p...tire-tt-mt4-g3

Have anyone here try these, have you succeed make ones that lasts for outside asphalt drifting on your 1/8 buggy or car like that ?
Please share and help.

I Need 17mm 100-110mm drift wheels badly
105mm would be sweet spot for me.



Files ? Link ?
Best material ?
Black color please, or dark gray
105mm diameter would be nice *
Asphalt Outside
1/8 buggy / GT 17mm hex 4wd

* Minium 100mm, max 110mm,
105mm would be best for me

They must last also. And drift okay offcourse

i am noob

i dont have 3d printer yet

I will buy one
max 300$

can these cheap printers make drift wheels also ?

How much filament is needed for 4pc drift wheels 115mm aprox ?

out of stock
the only ones made ever 1/8 , 17mm hex , plastic real drift wheels
https://www.nitrorcx.com/mad-tk2013.html


here is the design i like



These are maybe 100mm
i would like something like these in 105mm, more tire profile, not change size of spokes in the rim
if you understund, more tire only.
same rim size, same spoke lenght. just more profile on the tire area

please help

One last time.

Anyone here who has 1/8 Buggy?
Why not try 3d print 17mm hex Driftwheels and tell if it works fine.
Will they last long time , or wear out fast?

I dont want buy one 3d printer before i know it is safe to print them,
i know that 1/8 buggy weight double what 1/10 drifters does.
So i wonder will the 3d printed 17mm hex 1/8 size drift wheels last a good time ?

There is no one selling them.

Please can someone help find this out, some who have a 1/8 buggy and 3d printer.
Please

if it works fine, and the wheels lasts, then i will buy a better printer, and start print these, and sell cheap to others who dont have 3d printer.
a non profit thing, not to make money, only help some limited persons who really need to try it if they like bigger scale drifting..
Then all these people can also buy 3d printer self, if they feel the need.

Come on guys, help some please. i know many of you have 3d printers and 1/8 buggys, why not be kind and help others ?
There is Karma. Do good things to others, will bring you luck , you know that . LOL

I do believe 1/8 Buggy or Touring car, and also 1/7 Arrma Felony, Infraction 17mm hex , real drifting wheels is fun if they last some time.

I know i am at wrong forum., Racing forum, anyways, i try one last time here now.

Well... I just discover this...
No idea about the quantity of filament : this will depend about the complexity of the design and the requirements for supports or not (if the outside is flat, that makes it easier to print as you may printing the outside directly facing the bed)...
To be honest, I don't have any idea of the material for this. PLA works generally with tires, but it won't resist the abrasion and the induced heat caused by it... That being said there is people able to work drift rims for 1/10 cars with 3D printers... Except the size, it should not be much different...
You have to find out the material. There is some rims on Thingiverse for this for 1/10, you may contact the author to see what they use...
And not all printers are able to print all materials : what it can print depends upon the noozle temperature it can reach, the bed temperature as well... And some materials requires an enclosure...
Good luck !

thank you so much for this great info silvertriple.

I saw they sell filament DELRIN to 3d
delrin is very strong, and handle alot heat also, handles grinding to other surfaces also very well i read.

Just wonder if most 3d printers handle Delrin ? or they need special 3d printer? Delrin handle alot heat before it start form

Delrin, also known as POM is probably one of the hardest materials to print : the low adhesion is going to makes it difficult to stick to the bed of the printer, and it may cause warping as well... And it's clearly a material were you will need en enclosure and a proper filtration as it may generate dangerous fumes... Most likely not the material to start with in 3D printing...
