That looks great, how much do the wheels weight, are you planning to sell a few sets?

If they dont weight too much I think you would sell a tone!

Thanks. Not sure how heavy the wheels are didn’t check the weight of. them. Used 100% infill for strength but could lower might lose strength if I do that. As far as selling don’t really plan on it.

I like the wheels. I had a guy on thingiverse draw a set for me and they turned out nice. Printed a set for my brushless AR60 based barbarian, and also a set for my CXT crawler. I use PLA and they are quite tough, haven’t stripped a hex yet. Kinda heavy at 100% fill, but like you, would rather not sacrifice strength - plus the weight is good for crawling.

Did you design them yourself? I might be interested in printing a set if you feel like sharing the STL.
