Maybe later a set with the chrome rim and the gray center that will use a rally center cap like the Camaros and vettes came with in the late 60s and early 70s.

15 days left! We have 28 backers so far and still need a lot more if it's going to happen. I have also added a few pricing levels for Dealers.

Default 1 Week to go!

Only one week left before the project ends
Thanks to all of you who have backed the project so far!
We still need at least 200 more individuals to jump in, in order to get the wheels made. Either that or a bunch of dealers.
Anyway that's the status. 7 more days!

Andy

A few days ago the project ended and unfortunately did not receive enough backers to fund the project. I want to thank everyone who supported and encouraged the project. It took a lot of work, and it was great to get a positive response. Many thanks to everyone!

What now? As the previous post said, the project was not funded, so the wheels are not going into production at this time. That being said, I would love to see these wheels get produced. If anyone has enough resources and would like to speak with me about acquiring my wheel design, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks again

Cheers
Andy

You had your wheels 3D printed correct? How much is a set 3D printed? You might be surprised how much people might spend on them. Maybe not for racing but people pay stupid money for crawler wheels.
Throw up free website and a price you might get a good price for them.
I need somebody to 3D print some parts,but its hard to find people even interested in RC,if you had a website it would give me and others a place to contact you.

The wheels are cool, but this whole kickstarter thing seems shady, if im kickstarting a product and all I get is the wheels I feel ripped off. If you kick start something wheres the benefit. The wheels ? So much for venture capitalism. Give me stock options or something
