Mainly just for nitro or for show.
For electric they are too heavy. Even for nitro they are too heavy.
Most of the guys I now only use them for bashing on Trucks or for the bling factor.

i had a set of hardcore racing rims. they bend super easy, and really arent for racing. Only thing they are good for is to show off your ride.

I have a question and I'm not trying to offend anyone, but what the hell is the point of a "shelf queen" RC Car? If you want something to look good and sit on a shelf, buy a diecast. They're a lot cheaper Sorry, I just don't get it.

+1

diecast... all show and no go

Aluminium wheels - maybe good for drifters where all out performance doesnt matter, just good drifting and realistic looking cars
