Just a tough.. true they are much stronger, but compare to the hardened alunimum and considering they are rotates, I think aluminum one is better as they are lighter, not to mention much cheaper as well. Their pro layshaft with one piece aluminum is truly work of arts.

I usually run CS premounts and I have a bunch of the old spoke style as well as some of the new bbs style wheels.

That being said here's my problem, no matter how hard I turn the screw, trust me its on there when i put it on he track, sometimes either one of the front wheels will go flying off during a race. Has anyone else had this happen to them? It has happened to me 4-5 times this year that I know of in the A main and happened this past Sunday. There is nothing worse than knowing you have a decent car out there only to watch a wheel go flying off your car to end your race. Any REAL suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Thanks
Yea i've had this happened on my T1R , just put the washer the right way around and a small dab of thread lock on the screw threads, works a treat, but you'll have to turn harder to get the wheels off but it's fine

Yes, threadlock works; you could also try putting washers on the inside of the wheel as well as the outside. I've only had the problem with one make of wheel but I don't recall whose.

If you are running Take Off premounts or any other ABS wheel be careful. Threadlock eats ABS. If you get it on the rim it turns into something like feta chese and crumbles. I was running with Jared Scott this Sunday and he just used the washers on the outside and had no problems.

I'm sure Xray will come out with something of an improved version of it, like they always do.

Violet and blue seem to be popular on set -ups.

Best thing to do is see what the gang at the track is running. It'll give you a good base, starting line.
