The Topcad alloy rims I ordered turned up yesterday, look very nice but the quality is very poor. The axle 'hole' on one of the wheels isn't even central and the rim isn't even either......

Look good
Made crap

why compete??

Snap, i just recieved mine this morning and not happy at all, exactly the same problem, one rim has the hole way off center and the rim itself is a slanted shape, rest are fine just that one :(

Also noticed since fitting the new rims the front wheels rub on the arches any one else have this prob with the topcad rims, mine were the gunmetal multispoke ones.

I've tried numerous topcad parts and I can verify that they tend to be mediocre garbage. I consider them the Heipao of hop-ups. Topcad = TopCRAP.

Got mine from rl0725, not worth the hastle or exspense of sending them back :-(

So the GPM shocks I bought were rubbish and the wheels too! I'll stick with Kyosho next time!

Yeah i know what you mean about not worth sending them back :(

Just put it down to " tried it , it was crap , never again "
