Wheels and nuts

I managed to get a super deal on a set of used Pro10 1.9 bead locks from Dready himself. for 50 Eur it was too good of an offer to pass up .

They came already weighted and with a set of extenders with scale bolts . I went with the pin mounts to keep the truck as narrow as possible.  But i did not like the way they look with the normal hardware .

So i’ve ordered up some scale acorn nuts from Lockedup RC , and it was worth every cent .

The look difference in looks is amazing , now i need a scale hub cover to complete it .

The weight compared  to the old axial 1.9 beadlock combo is same , those were weighted as well . The only thing that changed is the balance, the old front tire and wheel combo weighed 260grams , the new one weighs 220 grams, the old rears were 140 grams , the new ones are 180 grams. This shifted the center of gravity a bit back so there should be less front flips now.
