could you explain if your design makes those wheels dynamically balanced?
And are those "teeths" in the center of the hub designed to sort of "bite" the tire better and perhaps not having to glue it ?
How many grams are they weighting?
I have done a lot of testing (have had it done by others) and the wheels are making any car faster, we have measured so far.
Dynamically balanced, I hope i understand it correct, when I answer I dont know.
An Engineer I know told me about some calculations he had made on the wheels, which came out very positive.
The teeth is a gimmick, but it keeps the rubbers in place, but will be removed on the next series. The best way to remove weigt, is where there is most material, and that was why i added the teeths.
I not concerned about weight, but a lot of buyers are, so I had to do something
I think the bigger wheels for rear is weighing 2.4grammes, but its so long since i weighted them, so i dont remember.
Weight of wheels are important on 1:1 cars, and on multiadjustable chassis like Plafit Excel and MoMo, but not on 1:32 plastic chassis cars, as long as they are below ???? (i guess 5 grammes)
I have made this design on 1:24 scale wheels, and they look REALLY good on cars.
I hope that covers your questions ?
Have a nice weekend.
