It looks like you need TMs wheels though. It would be better if they designed one that works with the hex.

It makes you buy only from TM, which allows them to charge however much they want, and basically limits our choices to only one company.

I really dont understand why people want QC wheel for TCs, there is no need IMO.

Why because we could run longer mains, and not all tracks have killer tire wear. besides how many times have you lost a wheel because of a bad nut? I know I have.

1/8th cars have have QC wheels for ages, but they still run only 60 minute mains, just like TCs. No, I have never lost a wheel because of a bad nut, and by the way, you can still loose wheels with the QC hubs, I have seen it happen.

I guess if this is the way of the future then I better get use to it. I dont like the fact that this IMO (I could be wrong) will increase racing cost, you can run softer tires and true them smaller because you can change them in the midlle of the race, and this will hurt the guys (like me) that are trying to stay on a budget.

Im one of those people that like the term "You cant stop progress", its just that I dont like this one progress.

It would work on ALL cars, be an option part, but as someone said before, it would not benifit but only a handfull of racers. I have in the past tried to talk to manufactures and they seem to have no intrest, so about a year ago, I gave up on the idea.

If they have changed thier minds, all they need to do is contact me via email.
I bet Jason can make them for you

well, anybody that sees this, and then someone comes out with it, you know where it came from.

The existing tire would have to have the stub hole reamed out to 9mm, the size of the shaft off the hex. Final size hasn't been determined, because I haven't made the prototype yet, but I am hoping someone will want to get the actual dims.

this is just a rough draft, I don't want all the design handed out. But it gives you an idea. You need two pins to hold the tire on due to the small area of the Hex, this is because if you used 1, it would wobble. The pawls would also need to be in different size sets for different wheels., but most would work. The thickness of the area of the tire in that area varies from manufacture, but most racers use the same tires.

My notes are about 2 pages in length, but no sense putting them all out. I know what would work, just need and expert to write the programs.
