Exclamation Sneak Peak - New Race Pace Wheels from Axis RC!

Hey all you 1/5 scale fans and RCLS members!

This is a special announcement about a new product which I think many of you will be interested in. While it's official release is currently scheduled for sometime in mid-September of 2015, we've slowly been presenting some information in order to gather interest and address questions. Feel free to do so here, or PM me.

While some of these pics have been posted on other threads and I've already addressed some questions there, let this be the quasi-official thread prior to formal release.

Some things you may wish to know:

- They are solid billet aluminum (6061).
- The discs are precision CNC machined here in the USA.
- They weigh only an ounce more than a stock Losi 5ive-T wheel.
- The offset is the same as stock Losi 5T and Baja 5T/SC. (Baja 5B style rear wheels, when done, will be weighed at that time and made available).
- The discs are drilled and tapped to accept M3 beadlock screws. They will be included in the kit. Should folks want added security, Folks may purchase standard nylock nuts to be used from the inside.
- While Axis RC is currently using Losi plastic rims and machining out the inner plastic to accept the discs, they will be releasing their own plastic rims in the near future--they will be both truck and buggy type.

Now, on to the pics:

While they've been raced at this year's Power Jam and Canadian Nationals these were sent to a known racer for trial at the West Coast Nationals just recently...

Default Sneak Peak - New Race Pace Wheels from Axis RC!

Well first off you won't twist the centers out of the wheels
Because of big jumps and big Hp motors
Over the stock wheel
And once you have a set of them you will notice that you have a spring in your step when you walk
From the price of them your billfold will be lighter which make the spring in your step
But like everything Axis makes it is the best so expect to pay for it
I'm trying to figure out how to pay for two sets of them

Stock wheels wear out and break. I've had rims fail before the tires wore out.
Axis RP Wheels - These should out last the model.

Stock bead lock holes wear out.
Axis RP Wheels - Outer bead lock screws screw into aluminum, not plastic.
Axis will be producing its own plastic wheel cylinders by the end of the year which will offer a similar solution for the inner bead locks as well.

Tires come loose and pop out of stock bead lock system.
Axis RP Wheels - So far, none have done so on any of the prototype tester sets for the past three months. Even the new, soft JConcepts tires are staying put.

Stock wheels are OK, but get mushy with regard to steering.
Axis RP Wheels - Sharper, crisper, more consistent steering.
Camber effect is improved.

Stock Losi 5ive is tough to 'fly' due to body/wheel weight ratio.
Axis RP Wheels - A bit of added weight helps you fly better although
much of the extra (ounce per wheel) weight is close to the wheel hub axis so slower acceleration is a non-issue.

Retail pricing has not been finalized, but it should be in the neighborhood of $200-$230/set (includes screws).

Woo hoo, just ordered mine. Was worried that this item was going to be a 1 time run. According to axis, the will be supporting this product for a long time. Also, the reason for buying these.
1. Bling factor
2. Replaceable rims, if they ever broke or bent
3. Have 5 sets of stock losi wheels where the reinforcement brace near the hub are all bent. This cause wheel to wobble.

Can't wait to get these

Looks like they will be back in stock in a couple of weeks. The shop is really swamped right now.
