Developed to solve the problem of your rim deforming when the temperature gets too high, the C.Andy’s Carbon ring is a lightweight solution to keeping your wheels round. After some experiments with carbon fibre, which is a great material due to it’s stiffness and low weight, they developed these carbon rings which fit perfectly into the rim and weigh only a few grams plus the high durability makes it possible for them to be used many times. After success with the Carbon Ring in 1/12th and 1/10th scale they worked together with front running 1/5th scale racer Markus Feldmann, to develop the 1/5th carbon ring. This was difficult because the 1/5th scale cars have problems with the high temperatures due to the brake disks which are located in the rims. But it was successful and now you can get the carbon ring for 1/12th electric, 1/10th electric, 1/10th scale nitro, 1/8th on road as well as 1/5th touring.
