  • different Super G+ wheels/tires?

    Anyone know an easy way to get rid of those horrible rears on the Super G+ cars?

    I had some Mega G wheels, but they are seeming to give me issues.

    Thanks in advance....

    I'm not sure, but I think that the SRT rear axle can be used to replace the Super G+ rear axle with very little modification.

        By "horrible", I'm guessing that you mean you wish they had more grip. I've not seen any that were out of round or lumpy. I also haven't seen any get hard over time. They force you to let up in the turns and be a little less aggressive when accelerating out of the turns. As long as everyone is racing with them, the races are great. Having said all that, sanding them helps. Gently hold the car on fine pitch sandpaper for a few seconds.

          well, if I want silicones....it's next to impossible on the stock wheels.

          and I can't stand those "ditches" on them...the tires U in the middle, making the outer edges touch, defeating the purpose of having a wide rear wheel/tire. I've tried the sanding trick, it's not effective in my opinion. In order to get enough material starting to be removed, you have to push down so hard, that the tires don't turn.

          I want to get a flat wheel, like tyco, or mega g, not like that is on there now. I want flat rears, that make 100% contact with the track, not 10%....lol

            OK, I'm not sure how skilled you are but here are some suggestions, the easiest is to go with a doulble flange rim and super tires...the next one is a way to improve the ability of your super g chassis, replace your stock g alxe with a tyco axle, it's smaller in dia. and will free up your chassis. you can transplant your g gears (boss and crown gear) to the Tyco axle and adhere them by a strong super glue or an expoxy..while the glue is curing set them so they mesh correctly with your pinion and that they sit in the proper position on the axle

            Last buy a after market axle, gears and double flange rims and super tires....

              Gel Claws makes a direct silicone replacement for the original SG+ wheels

              They work well, not as well as a sorted "flat wheel" slipon (due to original ride height), but a very easy and cheap option while retaining the original look.

                Just take of the hubs from your old axl and put some 250 double flange hubs on job done any slip ons will help And if you are trying to make it as fast as pos put the wizard front end about 360 size = very fast super g

                  I see a lot of repeat topics..maybe there should be a section of standard topics that are frequently asked so that newbies can quick reference point to address their questions...those 4 links basically ask the same questions and got the same responces...just a thought...

                    yup, they're usually called "Sticky" threads, at the top of the forum index

                      OP - Try other axles you have to hand, and if you are not happy with the results get yourself a wheel puller and press and some double flange wheels, you will be set for life then.

                      Wheel press do a google for 'sale engineering', flanged wheels 'JW's speed parts'

                        The problem is do newbies know about "Sticky" threads? If they did we would not see the same questions being asked over and over again...there should be a FAQ section thats clearly defined...

                          I use MG wheels with MG Jel Claws on my SG+, along with some upgraded traction mags and it's glued to the track. The stock SG+ wheels and tires suck so much...

                            I would get rid of the rims and axle . Get a hardened steel or titanuim axle from BSRT, SLOTTECH. WIZZARD or Scaleengineering. These axle are nice and straight and are difficult to bend. JW rims are real good as well as the BSRT double flanged rim,. I can't speak for the others because I have never used them. Keep away from ther Tyco axles. Many are not straight and they bend easily (soft metal). The Super Tires are very good. You may need to buy a couple of sets to get the same matching dimension but they are inexspensive to buy.
