DE SpeedLine Plus 2.4 1/10th buggy wheels

DE SpeedLine Plus 2.4 1/10th buggy wheels

The SpeedLine Plus 2.4 is the latest 1/10th buggy wheel from DE Racing. Offering a 2.4″ diameter, for the use with the latest generation of 1/10th buggy tyres, the wheel delivers maximum corner control and stability by utilising DE Racing’s “Sure Lock” foam retention system. This system, comprising of radial ribs that lock the wheel and foam insert together, retains maximum tyre traction to the racing surface while eliminating the vague inconsistencies that come from an insert that is free to move around on its wheel. The rims are available for Team Associated, Kyosho and TLR 1/10th buggies and in white, yellow or black colour.
