We do not reduce the width of the wheel. Since most packs do not allow this modification. Most are very descriptive about this modification.
The overall width is factory 0.360″
We do not “true” the edges as that changes the width of the wheel which makes it illegal according to 90% of the pack rules.
We do not modify the inner hub portion that is closest to the body. Since we do not reduce the width of the wheel, there is no need to trim this area to make it appear to have the same gap.
OTHER THINGS ABOUT OUR WHEELS
- Wheel retains all of the lettering and numbering inside and out
- Lighter Wheel weight than stock BSA wheels, decreasing rotational inertia, thus allowing quicker starts and overall times. Every thousand of a gram counts!
- Can be run as is, or polished with plastic polish to remove micro scratches. You choose!
|Derby Dust Polishing Kit / Service (Optional)Simple, no smoke and mirrors. No inflated costs. Guaranteed results. You can hear and see the difference. Increases speed, decreases overall time on my track around .01-.015 seconds on 30.75 feet measuring distance. Definitely a major difference.|
Polishing removes all the micro scratches from the manufacturing and machining process of this wheel. By doing so, you make faster wheel with less friction. Do it yourself, or we can do it for you for a little more than the price of the kit.
Lastly our wheel set that is not mold number matched. After all, the odds of getting all four matching wheel molds are not in your favor. That is the very first thing our judges look at to determine if aftermarket wheels are purchased. They do not even have to pull wheels to look. WE OFFER MATCH MOLDS if that is something you are interested in. Just click the option. #4 molds are never used. That is a bad mold.
And just for general knowledge. These parts (wheels) cost about .02 to make (if even that) . I don’t make them. And I am more than positive, there is no real quality control other than does it look right. We do our best to make them better than what they come out. Just remember that the wheels never begin with good quality control. They are NOT perfect, and never will be. They are not machined from solid plastic, they are injection molded plastic. No matter what modifications are done to them, they are not precision wheels. You have to accept that. If your expectations are greater than that, I ask that you go and visit the location where these are made and watch them being made for an hour. See who is making them and watch the quality control process. We do our best to make them fast!
