kmh - Yes, we have seen this problem. Usually it's in high temperatures when you hit something (touching a board with the side of the car). As a temporary fix, I put 3x3mm set screws in the small holes bewteen the pin slots of my rear rims at the Nats for extra safety. The mold has already been changed and the new Prism's that are coming in no longer have that hole and the chamfer that allows the pin into the slot for faster tire changes has been removed for extra safety as we think possibly with the tolerances of all the different cars, there may be a little end play from time to time that allows the pin out of the slot and into this chamfered area to twist the plastic. I only had a problem with 1 wheel on my Motonica (after a side impact) but we need to make sure no body has any problems at all so the changes are already made.

Hi Josh,

I am now running a Motonica P8.0R 2008 Ed.

Which Jaco Prism tyres are you using? The Mugen/Kyosho version right? Are they a direct fit, or you need to make any modifications?
Also which shores on each corner do you use for the long mains?


Finally, guys, I am still having a hard time finding these wheels on online shops.
Your help would be much appreciated

John
