Serpent 1/8 scale buggy rims

Serpent have released their new lightweight and very durable 1/8 scale buggy rim. Designed by Billy Easton, this large diameter 83mm rim with has just the right amount of flex for maximum performance. The outer edge of the rim moves inward a little to help the glue flow towards the tyre, while the inner rim flanges help stability of the rim and keep the foam inserts in place and stable. Inside the rim there is extra ribs to create the required flex and durability and they flow into the wheel-hex center to increase stiffness and have a strong surface area around the wheel nuts. Available in white or neon yellow, each wheel weighs only 32 grams each.
