Well Iíve never tried taking or pulling off the wheels on any of my cars that includes my raid bmw and it cost to much for a Scalextrics car in my opinion... anyways congrats to the pointy end and good luck all for next year
3rd without competing in the last 2 rounds hehe

Actually if I remember correctly one of the rounds my car was pushed after the stage to beat a lap record time maybe thatís what stressed the plastic rims !!!

Thanks Phil,
Now I understand your earlier references to your grand-children. Sounds like you have done a good job of grand-parenting !!

Phil in answer to your question about wheels breaking , in the SCX days one problem was the plastic shaft could split if i remember right the first year i did this Ember helped to prep my car as i had no idea and she recomended using strong cotton to wrap round them with supaglue , and i never had a problem, still run the original 111 a Mitsi and as good now as it was then.
Turning to scalextric the trouble seems to be the hub , i think it,s a bit thin and using knurled axles and let's face it them wheels are hard to get of at the best of time, so i,m guessing they are a bugger to get on and it,s done by a machine which puts a lot of strain at the hub end nearest the rest of the wheel.
Going by my experiance i think there is sometimes a crack where the shaft has been forced on which in use especially rally cars can break, the reason i think this is the wheels i,ve seen including Rossko,s are broken in exactly the same place, and also you get contamination by oil being throw inside the wheel area which will seap into the damaged area .
Out of 6 sets of rear axles i have had one broken new out of the packet and one break while it was being put through it,s paces on a rally track , you are always gonna get your wheels banging against things on a rally track , something you can't change, what can be done about it? well nothing really as it,s just the luck of the draw while we are using these cars.

Just a suggestion but what about turning WRP into a teams event for 2019. Four cars per team, one of each type with each car built by a different person. Aussie or any other country with numbers could enter more than one team.

Re wheels touch wood I have never had a problem. SCX and Scaly rally wheels have been strengthened similar to Peter Gunn's example but Ninco truck wheels raced unmodified. Pity about Rossco's car but one failure is hardly reason to change. Apart from rally cars I have run several Scaly GT's plus a couple of modified Aussie V8's with original plastic wheels without problem (including in Touring Car Proxy).

Posted some cars out last week. Have some ready to go but waiting on replies from owners to confirm address.
Every year we get cars sent back to us "not known at this address"
If you have moved in the last 12 months please PM us me with new details.
Also waiting on trophies. They are due here this week.
I don't expect quick delivery at this time of the year.

While not (yet) an entrant in this proxy, Iíve had a bit to do with plastic v metal rims...

IMHO, Scaley rims do not take well to being Ďknockedí on scenery, or when catching on the slot/braid groove when sideways. I agree with Keith, they are rubbish to begin with (as are SCX) - shouldnít need a ferrile or cotton or anything else glued around the hub before you use them.
I broke almost every plastic rim I had on a commercial track (not rally) at one stage as I drove the cars similarly to my brass chassis/sponge things - I had to learn not to push too hard with the car sideways through a corner/banging on a wall.
I suspect that on the narrow and built up rally tracks/any worn plastic track that eventually rims will break. Still if plasticís the rule, then plastic it is...
Have a great new year people.
