The Brawler is a white 12mm hex glue up style wheel with a black hub cap that completely covers up the non-scale looking wheel nut, giving your truck the ultimate scale look.

ProCircuit PCX rims & new inserts

pct_wheels

Modelix is pleased to present the new Procircuit PCX Wheels for 1:8 Buggies. This new wheel represents a great step forward in terms of performance. Procircuit development team wanted to create a lightweight wheel without compromising strength to give your buggy the lowest rotating mass and the fastest acceleration ever achieved, and this is exactly what the all-new PCX wheel represents. It is 20% lighter, a little wider than previous version and also has a slightly higher level of flex which results in more traction in loose track conditions and better performance when landing from jumps as well as on bumpy tracks.

Additional features include the innovative easy glue system, a grooved bead area to help guide the glue easily into place. The wheels also incorporate radial ribs that lock the wheel and foam insert together eliminating the vague inconsistencies that come from an insert that is free to move around on its wheel. Procircuit wheels are manufactured using advanced techniques to ensure durability. Available in bright white and fluorescent yellow.

Next up are new Procircuit Closed Cell Inserts intended for use with the new PCX wheels. This orange closed cell insert has been designed to boost and maximise Procircuit tire and wheel performance. Inserts have grooved lines on the outside and have the right size to perfectly fit the tire inner carcass providing a better response and feel. The inside has larger grooves to better absorb impacts and bumps without sacrifying stability or forward traction. Testing has shown great results with a more predictable handling and easier to drive car.

The inserts are light-weight, water resistant, made of durable material that can be reused and fits the majority of 1:8 buggy tires you can find on the market.
