Front Drum on 1.9 will clear VP Zero Ackerman Knuckles, even with 225 Hubs, and thin 5mm SCX10 hexes"thumbsup"

(prototype shown, production versions actually have even more clearance.)

Awesome product! Just what I was looking for.

How thick is the brass that mounts between the hub and wheel? Looks close to 1/16"?

Thanks

I like these..... noted for future purchase.

Do we know if these will work with the VP 8 setup?

Re: ~TSS~ SLW Brake Drum (Wheel Weights)
 
any chance for a disc brake style in the future?

a disc setup wouldnt have the weight benifits of the solid drums. there are other companies making metal disc brakes for looks.
however i suppose a vented sloted pattern could be machined into the face of these giving the looks of discs, but the weight advantage of the drums. but the added machining cost would probly make the price too high.:oops:
shoot me a PM if you have any other questions or ideas on this"thumbsup"

I was thinking something like what vaterra released for the ascender but bolts onto the wheel.

Any idea when the 1.9's will be back in stock?

Note: "Front" size drums may hit the screws on some VP 1.9 wheels.

Front shown, you will need to simply hit the drum with a dremel to clear them just a hair, or run "rear" drums on both front and rear.
This is only on some VP 1.9 wheels, 2.2 are fine, and some VP 1.9 are fine.

rear shown. fits fine.

Which vp wheel is that?

Re: ~TSS~ SLW Brake Drum (Wheel Weights)
 
They are my 1.9 Vanquish OMF beadlock rims. As was stated, the rear fit perfectly, but the front I had to dremel them down a little bit to fit inside the front rims.

So when are we going to stock these again?
