Rather you can post a photo, so I could see where they're chunking. Middle or on the edges. They chunk not of bad driving. I seldomly see them chunk on carpet. How far do you run them by diameter?

I prefer the grip of the slippers foams over Tamiya tires. Around 3 hours of run time.
Was it simply coincidence that the saw's inner diameter and outer diameter were the same size as tamiya tires? I'm thinking about doing this on my own

Mailbox, you can adjust the hole saw for various diameters.

Sometimes I make the tires simply because it works better that what I can buy

they are adjustable... for inner hole, go 1 smaller rather than larger


if you're smelling burning, sounds like you're cutting unlubricated!

we used a giant drillpress indoors, zero ventilation. Goes slow like 200rpm.

best lube? plain water in a trigger spray bottle, that's all u need

Windtunnel sells rims, and I think rc4less does too.


When re-using rimms, the CRC's will melt, but Jaco wheels do not. (atleast for 1/12 scale).
