MX kid, are you looking for glue on or beadlock?

For inexpensive glue ons I have ran both of these and they hold up well

I'm not sure who makes beadlocks anymore.

You might want to try onshape, it is free and accessible from any computer. The free version will share designs with the public. It is easy to use similar to solidworks. The paid for version is very reasonable and will allow you to keep designs private.

Looking for a beadlock. Do most heavy comp guys run glued wheels or beadlocked? Is there any pros or cons to either?

The carbon wheels I'm running are glue on. If you can find a set, Vanquish SLW wheels are your best bet for a lightweight beadlock wheel.

Great thank you for the info. Question about the Ibex tires. I just received some, but couldn't find the CI 5.5 dual stage soft outer foams anywhere in stock. I got some proline 2.2 dual stages instead but didn't realize they are only for their XL size 2.2 tires so they're too big. I did find the 5.25 CI foams but not the 5.5, am I just waiting till they come back in stock?

I run the 5.25 ones. I started with medium but they were a little too soft. The firm outters were better but that was on my capra. Your rig is prob lighter so medium might work.

I found the 5.25 comp cut softs so I ordered them hopefully they arenít too soft. Weight of the truck is 4lb 7 oz without a battery.

Great work!
I'm very interested in these new rigs coming up with the capra axles!
Did you design the rodends or are they available online for download?
It looks great!

Based on XR gears with a slight forward motor design. Will be capable of 9:1 to 4.5:1 overall reduction. Finalizing the gear spacing and layout before I commit to designing the case and sending everything to Shapeways.

I honestly don't remember, I've had the models for over 5 years and don't remember where I got them from.
