B44 wheel options?

Post by RC104ever »

Hey everyone - for those of you who have a B44 - I was wondering what other options there are besides the stock dish wheels and the J Concepts wheels.

I know in the front there are hex drive wheel options, and I'm guessing with an adaptor you can do the same in the rear.

But what wheels will actually work?

I'd like to use something flashy, like the HPI star wheels:

those i believe don't have the offset needed.

59burst?(I think) on here found some tamiya ones that are pink, much like the old yokomo wheels. yep, here:

with the losi 22 out now, there are a couple of manufacturers that are making slightly fancy wheels now. still a dish, but they have rivet details....

hopefully this starts an industry trend towards more interesting wheels, but, probably not.

you can probably get these wheels to work also, with the appropriate adapting: I have set, i''l try and remember to compare them to B4, they are all hex, front and rear.

I'm down with that! I think the last thing I'd ever put on any of my RC cars is a featureless, benign, generic-looking, moon-faced disk design. I'd rather sacrifice a little weight & aerodynamics and have some style. 8)

What about 5 spokes from JCRacing.

They look like Losi XX4 style.

Oooh, sweet! I have their wheels for the RC10 and they are excellent. Forgot they make other wheels.

May have to invest in a few sets :)
