very nice, the wheels;) . looks like Square SKM-007LS
Alloy 6 Spoke Inch Up +1mm Rims Set (Wide Wheel Base) if i'm not mistaken. i am seriously considering those for my next body, the cr5. i may just go with the bbs stlye.

that bodyhas seen better days:D looks like my first body, a vitz rs (http://mini-zracer.com/albums/album50/mz169.sized.jpg) .

arch2b, You're right, those are Square's SKM-007LS :) I have BBS style also and like them both.

For the body.. it has seen it all, skate-parks, ramps, jumps etc :D

Yep them wheels give it a boost of " o0o la la " :D

Can someone post a link to squares site or anywhere where i can see/buy there selection of rims :)

Obeesi
2003.03.17, 07:24 AM
MR - Z -, you can find them here (http://www.rc-square.com)

Thanks Obeesi, just wondering if you have to modify the wheel arches on the body to fit properly ?

Also im guessing they would need a certain type of tyre to go around them ?

mr-z- yes and no. i had to Shave down the back of the headlights on my vitz to get my inch ups to not rub while turning or even slightest suspension movement. nothing major. i had no problems with my them fitting on my altezza. they would not fit on the mini cooper body without a lot more work.

and no, no special tires needed. just stretch any brand tire on. i've used 50/30 deg kyosho tires and mzr ultrasoft foams.

there are a couple of styles left in the shop here and david has said more are coming, david has reported that square has temporarily sold out all of it's stock.

It's easy to say it is, where's the proof?

rcer4life
2003.03.18, 02:48 PM
yeah wheres the proof

arch2b
2003.03.18, 03:15 PM
you have me there, i've edited my earlier post to correct my haste to point to squares website. i can't offer proof from square but a couple of other online stores sell them as inch ups. i'd hate to think they were misleading people. sort of like the ebayers' selling gpm dampers for the overland as oil shocks when gpm expressely states they are not.
i believe someone actually posted a picture measuring them in a previous post. don't have the time to hunt it down.
if it turns out they are not, then i'm wrong. nothing bad about being wrong sometimes.

live and learn Mini-z's are worth it

2003.03.18, 05:43 PM
rcer- i'm not sure what you said there at the end. i don't think i was insulted, was i? i thought i was being sencere and apologetic. the post subject was ment to be humurous, i guess it's not. sorry. i have no problem admitting a mistake, everyone makes them.
i didn't think it was a fast prediction, it was info i believed to be true based on my forum reading and web browsing, like half the info in this forum. my mistake was using a source that was clearly the wrong one to use, again, i'm sorry.
strider caught my error, thank you strider, and i corrected myself. nothing worthy of being chastized.

i just want to get back to us being happy:D

2003.03.19, 09:22 AM
STRIDER- don't leave, i wouldn't have anyone to point out my errors;) , jking. seriously, pointing that out only helps. i'm better off knowing and correcting my mistake.
why are you so adament that they are not inch ups? just curious.

rcer4life
2003.03.19, 02:25 PM

Strider-
2003.03.19, 05:25 PM
arch2b i'm not annoyed at you, i don't care if they're inch ups or not, all i was doing was relaying info from square's site, i'm not wrong, they are....

and it's Obeesi's attitude that pisses of me off, him as his :rolleyes: and *yawn*,was it obvious that they are inch ups? If i don't even have them, and square's site doesn't say it, what am i to believe?? I've talked with people enough and the things that are most annoying are what you did, not like it shows much respect for another person when you use *yawn*, more like an insult and looking down on them.

2003.03.19, 05:36 PM
uve got a point

arch2b
2003.03.19, 08:20 PM
good point.

i understand your frustration with what you find are obvious errors, i've corrected some myself. i wouldn't say they are the most annoying thing though. personally the most annoying thing to me are exaggeratedly long sig's that drag out a thread and make you scroll through it all to get to the next reply.

rcer4life
2003.03.20, 06:20 AM
i hate those
but i thought there was a limit some ppl have really long sigs
