Factory axles:

 

Our prepped have been deburred, shaped, straightened and sanded down to a 1000/2000 grit finish. From that point, each axle goes through a buffing process up to 100,000 grit. We use separate buffing wheels to ensure no cross contamination.

We are gracing max average overall speeds of 12.5+ feet per second out of these sets. or 2.45's on a 35 foot metal track. No reason you can't do the same.

 

Run Your car on negative camber?

Fast cars are usually ran with negative camber wheels. The easiest way to achieve this is buy using bent axles. With a negative camber, the wheel is forced to ride against the outer wheel hub eliminating side to side wheel travel which will eat away your speed. The tooling for this costs $25 (press and rail riding tool) and is suggested to be done using a hammer. We have installed the same tooling in bench press to get precise, repeatable results with no scratches or maring. We are happy to provide your axle set to canter of choice if this is something your would like. Please also visit our YouTube channel to learn how to tune those bent axles!

 

WHEELS

The easiest way in getting caught purchasing wheels and not using what you have in the box is the wheels with the all same mold number! There is only a 1/64,000th chance of getting all 4 wheels the same mold. Do NOT get caught! Our wheels are NOT mold match numbers.

Lightly machined WHEEL SET: Our Wheels are the new 2009 mold. They are 100% BSA legal. We meet even the pickiest of Chicago Engineer's Cub Scout Pack Requirements. Let me tell you those packs up there are STRICT! Wheels are turned to same diameter, high spots are milled off. All BSA lettering are left alone. Wheel crimps (tread) are still visible. This set will pass the most picky of all inspectors. Using the NEW Inspection tool from Max-V. We guarantee that our wheels fall within the specs below. If you need more specialized wheels, please email.

Wheel Diameter - Compliance with a 1.170 inch wheel diameter specification.

Wheel Width - Complies with a .360 overall wheel width. These measurements correspond to 8mm tread patch width on most wheels.

 


WET SAND OPTION: These wheel set have NO MACHINING OR LATHE WORK. If your pack rules requires light sanding only, we offer that option as well. All 4 wheels are chucked up at one time. Then the wheel set is ran thorough a series of wet sands 400-1000. This eliminates the highs of each wheel. This will make them a uniform, consistent set of wheels ready for racing. This gives it a nice finished look and also complies with rules of your pack.


Derby Dust Asset Wheel: Not every derby participant wants to bend the rules to win. Some may just want better than stock. We have designed just the wheel. And meets budget needs as well. Lighter Less machining Better machining Retain all of the lettering and numbering inside so they will meet many Pack, District and Council Rules. See More Info

Wheel Diameter - Compliance with a 1.170 inch wheel diameter specification.

Wheel Width - Complies with a .360 overall wheel width. These measurements correspond to 8mm tread patch width on most wheels.

These wheels are already visually inspected therefore this option can not be added.


Derby Dust Black Op's Wheels:   By far one of the fastest wheels on the market designed for the strictest of rules  See more info:  


If your rules are a little more relaxed, I highly suggest the Derby Worx Pro-Lite Interia wheels. With the new hub facing, they are yielding about and increase of 0.02 seconds on most of your builds. We gain about 0.035 average with the 1gram Derby Worx Ultra-Lite wheels. Most packs do not allow the last set. On a Builders NOTE.... You will need a set of pliers to pull the axles once installed. Because the wheels have been ligthend, you can no longer pull the axle out by the wheel. You will bend/warp out of round. Then the wheel will not roll correctly and you just wasted $$$. Please don't let this be I told you so moment.


CUSTOM WHEEL SERVICES

Polishing Service

Simple, no smoke and mirrors. No inflated costs. Guaranteed results. You can hear and see the difference. Increases speed, decreases overall time on our track by around .01-.015 seconds on 30.75 feet measuring distance. Definitely a major difference.

Polishing removes all the micro scratches from the manufacturing and machining process. By doing so, you make faster wheel with less friction. Do it yourself ($9.95 for the kit and 1 hr of work) or we can do it for you for a little more than the price of the kit.


Balanced Wheels

Customize you wheel set by getting your wheels balanced. We offer this service. Some people believe this is a must. We have yet to formulate any data to give an honest opinion.

Wheel Accuracy = Greater Speed! We use the Precision Wheel Balancer designed by RLN Machining. A $25 tool if you purchased it alone.

Even the Derby Worx specialty wheels are not balanced!

Designed for a perfectly balanced wheel that will spin true. Since most packs do not allow the removal of material, we use black or clear nail polish on the inside of the wheel hub to balance the wheel. We leave the Factory BSA lettering in tact and untouched. A set of these could mean the difference between first and third place. This fee is for labor. It takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hr to balance the set. There is no trick of the trade to do this. Some things just take time. GET this Service CHEAP with the bundled package! That is a $25 tool ALONE!

Asset wheels, Derby Worx wheels are not available for this option.


Mold Match

You have read up on it and believe in the Hype! So we offer this service to you.

Derby Worx Wheels are already mold match. This option is not available for those wheels


Perfect Bore

Visually inspected bore free from manufacturing flaws. Every .001 second counts and this option easily helps in that department. These wheels are the cream of the crop and carry the price tag with them. You'll have to buy quite a bit of wheels to find 4 of these usually. Since we buy them by the thousands, our selection is a little easier.

Not available on derby worx wheels. Asset wheels already meets this criteria.


Precision Measured Matched Inner Bore

We believe this option is more appropriate than mold match wheels. Wheels are matched using precision certified pin gages. Accuracy of .0002". We are the first in the industry to offer this type of service. Lets watch the rest follow. Rest assured that your wheels will be as near identical as we can make them. If all your wheels have the same rotational travel, will make it easier to tune your car and reduce wheel wobble. No need for averaging. We will match exact diameters.
