CategorySpeed Tips

CommentAn advanced technique is to weight the wheels and lighten the car. By pouring liquid epoxy mixed with a metal dust (not lead!)into the cavity on the inside of the wheel. Be very careful, the wheels must be perfectly level and left undisturbed while drying for these wheels to be balanced. I recomend making several sets and trying each out until you get a matched set. It does work if you get them just right.
