Regarding the wheel strength; I was very pleased with the wheels. I did brush some pipes on the track before I got used to the car and layout but the wheels are still just as true as they were when I started. Out club uses 2.5" PVC conduit for the track barriers so they must be quite strong. I rotated the tires left to right once during the race and the wear stayed very even. I hope to do some back to back testing at our unprepped medium traction parking lot track to compare the actual mechanical traction of the tires to a couple of popular brands, but at the price I got the Momotuning tires from Kinetix, I have a hard time forking out the extra cash for other tires!!

Tires worked great! The track here at srs is the worsed track ever, but never one time chunked the tires or bent the rims (knock on wood!) I think 40s and 37s are what works best here. The fuel lines worked great too. As mentioned, very minimal discoloration or maybe almost no discoloration at all. I'll have more test next week, and hopefully at the O'donnel race.

As far as I know they are only zero offset.

Q:

Like rwisejr said, our rims are 0mm offset. But they fit MTX-3 perfectly. You can adjust the car width by the pivot balls or use spacers to make up the different.


Thanks for your interest.

Aaron
