    Drift wheels!

    Anybody know where I can get some? I have 17mm hex hubs and I would love to make my rally drift.

    Sorry to not be providing a straight-forward answer, but what about some drift rings? I think Dusty Motors offers some. Not sure of the cost, durability, etc. but flexibility would be a benefit.

    Drift rings to me are extremely overpriced and also they only fit the stock wheels, I have 17mm hubs on mine and my stock wheels are obsolete. I need some actual hard compound plastic drift wheels. I know exceed rc has a 1/8 mad drift so I was wondering of those drift wheels would fit the rally.

    See if you can find some black pvc pipe that you can cut and squeeze your wheels into.

    Yep, have them on my rally and my xo-1!

    Very well built, a little heavy but that's not a bad thing for drifting. Perfect balance and true.

    They look much better in person, but you could remove the chrome for even better look.

    17mm hub, 100mm x 45mm

    I just realized I have my 12mm sc slick on, so I just put the wheel on the hub so you can see it.

    Yeah, I use to uploading direct to server, so I uploaded to my Heli site. Can you view them?

    I have a few sets, these are brand new in the picture, but they wear very good even on concrete.
