The CB Design (CBD) 5-Spoke Racing Wheel is a lighter weight version of the popular CBD 5-Spoke Classic Wheel. Like the CBD 5-Spoke Classic Wheel, the CBD 5-Spoke Racing Wheel offers the following features and benefits:
5-Spoke Design complements a wide variety of 1/32 slot cars makes and models.
Designed for racers. Designed based on feedback and requests from many of our customers who race competitively on a regular basis.
Precision machined using state-of-the-art CNC machine tools which ensure CBD Wheels are perfectly round and the axle bore is concentric with both the outer wheel surface and longitudinal axis of the axle.
Perfect concentricity between the axle bore and longitudinal axis of the axle is achieved by designing all CBD Wheels for a specific axle (Slot.it SIPA01). Tolerances between the axle bore and axle are very snug. When mounting or dismounting CBD Wheels on the recommended axle, resistance will be noticeable. Again, this is by design - the snug fit ensures concentricity is maintained when the set screw is tightened. The result – ZERO wheel wobble or vibration which translates into better performance whether in a straight line or while cornering.
Sturdy, race proven design. Some of our competitors wheel's achieve lighter weight at the expense of structural integrity and durability. Ultra-lightweight wheels can be prone to "bending" - particularly when subjected to "offs" and hits during actual racing. Once bent, the wheel "wobbles" which in turn adversely affects the car's performance. In contrast, CBD Wheels are designed to be raced under the most demanding conditions - rest assured they will survive crashes and trips to the floor!
True hubless design provides exceptional flexibility when adjusting the rear track width. This is particularly important when rules specify the wheel/tire must be completely inside the fender and/or a maximum track width. Sidewinder setups can be especially challenging in this respect. In particular, 5-Spoke Racing Wheels provide serious racers the ability to run wider tires under a greater variety of cars than our competitor's full and "small" hub wheel designs.
Easy to locate the retaining set screw using a small dimple machined on the outside of wheel. This is especially helpful if the tire is glued to the wheel and you can’t easily peel the tire back to locate the set screw.
Affordable alternative to other manufacturer’s more costly high-performance wheels.
Tires that fit: CB62 (20.0mm), CB63 (20.55mm), CB64 (21.5mm)
