OOooo, never seen O get angry before. Something to look forward too? No motor or chair throwing, seen those before. Think of something else... Fist fight? Nahhhh that's too much.

Default Wheel testing for Orlando

I tested the durability of the silver multispoke wheels for Orlando. Attached are the before and after pictures. I used the same amount of force as I would if I were hitting a nail. Please note the following:
  • Apply TRF sticker to hammer - Factory
  • First hit - Dented the wheels, no cracks, some whitening due to stress
  • Second hit - More of the same
  • Third hit (a little harder) - Cracks appeared
  • Fourth hit - Results shown in pictures

These wheels are pretty stout. Hope this helps.

Are you sure you didn't pull those out of my box after the Omaha TCS? They look just like the left side of my car where I pancaked the end of the straight running my Tekin v203 in GT2!

nice report rtypec.. been thinking about using these wheels.. they are sexxy. but material looks like that of other wheels that are rather 'brittle'. these look good-to-go.
