Default Carbon wheels

Are the "carbon" wheels just a different color than the white wheels or they different material? If different, what are the characteristics?

The carbon wheels are filled with carbon. Stiffer and lighter than normal wheels. I find the car accerate a little faster and seems to have more grip at high speed corner.

Our ContactRC web site it very legit. I will check into the firewall issues and also see what is going on with the virus issues. This is the first I am hearing about it so I get on it with Kevin. Thanks for the heads up. If there are issues with the web and you need tires you can always email Kevin or me and I will pass it on to him. We do have carbon sedan wheel, but not 1/8 yet.

Regards,

DJ Apolaro

Are they more brittle and break easier than the white wheels?

The Matrix carbon wheels are not brittle and are quite strong. As previously said, they provide more corner speed and better acceleration. Matrix makes 32 front/rear. I typically use 32f & 35r or 35f & 37r. The Matrix Carbon wheels for 1/8 are new, and will be used at the Worlds. The Matrix carbon 1/10 wheels have been out since July and are very good also.

I realize there is a price difference, but I would highly recommend the carbon wheels over the standard based on the performance difference.
