I saw these wheels well prior to production and received my production models the same day they were completed. Anyway, I must say that these are by and far the best setup wheels available. They center perfectly, are a proper diameter to effectively assess ride height, and the threads are absolutely perfect.

Within a matter of seconds, you can install all four of these setup wheels and obtain truly accurate numbers. These wheels are an absolute no-brainer for any R/C racer.

Awesome job to RCRevealed and I look forward to what is in store!

Randy-What is the OD profile on these wheels? Flat, radiused, o-ring, etc. Can I buy a set of M4 ones from you at KO?

Thanks for the kind words Lemar, sorry you had to wait so long to get a set, but I'm glad to hear you like them.

Hey James,

I used a 2mm wide O-Ring along the outer edge to give a little traction on the setup board so the car won't slide all over. I'll be sure to have a few sets with me at the KO race

Check your e-mail Korey, I can get a set out to you ASAP.

Sold quite a few sets now and the feedback has been great from everyone.

One of the questions I am getting is how delicate are the threads on the wheel. Because this is my first product, I wanted to be sure that I'm putting a good product on the market, so I threaded each wheel onto an axle and spun it to make sure they were all true. Not one of them cross threaded, and none of the current users have had any problems with them either. The anodizing is pretty thick, and seems to protect the threads really well.

Hey Wes, glad to hear you're happy with them! I expect you to win Snowbirds this year since your camber will be set right. No excuses now...

Incase anyone is waiting for their orders, just to let you all know, all orders have been sent out the same day that the payment has been received and sent Priority Mail which should arrive anywhere in no more than 3 days.

I just bought a set of Randy's set up wheels tonight at West Coast RC Raceway...

Wheels are super nice and very accurate.

Thanks Randy.

Thanks for the business Kevin, glad to hear you like them!

West Coast RC is stocked up on the setup wheels, they will have plenty on hand for anyone attending the KO race this weekend, I'll be there to make sure they don't run out

These things are great! At first I thought there was something wrong with my set, but then realized that I just needed to add a small wheel hex shim. The wheels were bottoming out on the threads instead of the wheel hex. This was caused by me using super thin wheel hex's to narrow the car, but it wasn't a problem when I put the std wheel hex's back on. To remedy the situation with the thin hex's I just added the shim.

Now they spin super true, and give a super accurate base to measure camber, toe, and tweak from. I'd recommend these to anyone! Another plus is they are very close to the same size as jaco blue tires, so you can even set your ride height with them too!!!

I finally had a chance to use mine today.. I must say I loved them... I do have one complaint though.. As soon as I started using mine, everyone kept borrowing them all day .


Should have at least one or two orders coming from KC.

Glad to hear you guys are liking them.

I tested them on a HB car, but it must have had the wider hex on. There is a recess on one side to accomodate most hex sizes, but as you found, just add an axle shim if you are running a super thin hex and it takes care of the problem easily.

I've spent the past weekend at the KO Grand Prix so I haven't been on here much, but it's Monday and back to business as normal!
