I received an email from a customer about a week past asking if our Beadlock/Wheel Cover upgrades for the SoReal Diecasts would work on a Losi Micro Crawler. They unfortunately didn’t, but it started me wondering.
I ordered a set of tires and wheels for a Losi Micro Crawler, which arrived yesterday. The good news is, I absolutely can make beadlocks for these things, that will bolt on 6 bolt spots on the wheel.
This will likely push a couple things around as i think these have a lot of potential. I’ll be making them for both the 1:24th and 1:18th crawlers, in a variety of different designs. Photoetching will give us an advantage over existing upgrades because we’ll be able to add more detail for a lower cost, and unique designs not yet offered.
The wheel covers will be something other then brass for durability, though i have to decide between stainless steel (least expensive, most durable), and Nickel Silver (more expensive, fairly durable, and paint-able).
It all depends on what i decide to put on the plate with them, i try to put eggs in as many baskets as possible when producing new parts to reduce the chance of catastrophic public dis-interest in a new product.
