I spent about 12 hours yesterday making wheels. When I close my eyes I still see wheels spinning.

Hey, I think one of those sets of Draglites might be mine. Ordered them last week...LOL. Hey,BTW...Is the machined finish on the Draglites smooth enough to polish?

Jim, can you do something futuristic? I am working on a new WW3 vehicle, a 2010 Challenger, and I would love to have a set of wheels and beefy tires for the beast.

You do amazing work. I think we should talk.

That's insane. How do you get all that detail when you are making something so small?

I would chuck them in a cordless drill and sand the machine marks out with some fine paper, then use some polishing compound on then when there spinning. They have a pretty nice shine already.

those are pretty cool, i remember coming across your site a while ago when looking for detail stuff on the web. Are there any plans to do any of the newer style WELD wheels they came out with or mickey Thompson styled wheels? Just out of curiosity, what kind of 3D printer do you have?

We are doing the latest Weld Racing Pro wheel for a customer now and will put it on the web site as soon as we are sure everything is correct.

I do have programs for the Pro Stars and Draglites in 1/16. They are the same price as the 1/16 Ansons. Thanks

Nice wheels sir! I was wandering if you'd be interested in doing a one off set of wheels for a 1:18th scale diecast? Ive got a set of measurements & no one really makes any good wheels for those cars.

Hey, i had to post my comment here. I got my Micro Nitro draglites a few weeks ago. Shipping was fast, and the only thing I can say about them is...WOW! These wheels are a true work of art. I'd highly suggest these to everyone.
