AllEven RC SB5 Rollers on 8th scale

These are the best rollers or crash bars Ive tried in all the years of running rc bikes. I cut the nylon rods down 10mm from stock and Im still working on how low I can get.

I did not need the included back plate. I made two holes in the outer frame pieces. For the first time you can see 'life like' tread wear out to the edges on the ZH tires. They seem invisible and roll like a third wheel. They took some tumbles with no damage.

Great Job Patrick!

I am now at 45mm for the length of the nylon rods measured outside of the holders.

I have reduced the right side to 43mm, left side is still 45mm. I just barely wants to touch the fairings and its even on both sides. This is with the nylon rods out of the holders. I measured from the rear post to the table leaning both ways.

Another plus is, you'll get 9 seasons out of one set of wheels with the teeny 1/8th scalers! Sweet!

Yeah, they are really holding up. I have tumbled them at super high speeds with no damage. Im looking forward to gearing my other two bikes up with them soon.
