Avid have released a black version of their Truss 1/8th scale buggy wheel, previously only available in white and yellow. The wheel name is derived from the internal ribbing that uses the strength of triangles instead of having straight ribs. The focus of the Truss starts at the centre of the wheel so the tighter triangles help keep the torque strength right where you want it when applying all your throttle, at the nut. Outer channels remove a little rotating mass at the furthest point but more importantly they help the foam from shifting side to side. The benefit on track is that the car has more stability, especially when you are off power trying to swerve left and right to avoid a wreck or through a set of switchbacks after a high speed section.
