    New wheels for the Rally.

    I just got some new wheels for my Fiesta and they didnt last 20 minutes bashing. Sad Sad.

    Yea... Been there. Wheels are a mixed bag. Obviously different brands have different qualities. R2's are basically a consumable. Most of them are a hard and somewhat brittle plastic, but they look great and are relatively inexpensive. It's a bonus if I can re-use a set of wheels; I blew one apart drifting across a drainage grate but a few others are going double-duty. HPI (TE37 anyway) are made from a much more flexible plastic and have been quite tough as my off-road rims. Depends on what you hit, and how, too...
    The prototype project.

    Yeah the TE37's are strong. I have curbed em a bunch of times. Maybe they are a little warped but no cracks.
    Just got these from Hpi.
    Definetly stronger!
