CB Design Wheels
CB Design Wheels are designed to enhance the performance and appearance of 1/32 slot cars. The CB Design Wheels all feature a hubless design and does not require inserts (except, of course, the Insert Wheels). CB Design Wheels offer the following features and benefits:
- Great designs that complement a wide variety of 1/32 slot cars makes and models.
Tips For Using CB Design Stock Car Wheels
To ensure the best possible performance and to prevent inadvertent damage to the axle and/or CBD Stock Car Wheels, please review and follow these tips.
- Use ONLY the recommended axle - Slot.it (tm) part number SIPA01. As mentioned previously, CBD Wheels were designed specifically to fit this axle. Note that other manufacturers "3/32 inch" axles and drill blanks do NOT have the same EXACT outer diameter as the Slot.it (tm) axle. As a result, these axles and/or drill blanks are either too small (loose fit = wobble/vibration/hopping) or too large (wheel will not fit - the wheel will be damaged if forced on).
- Use a new axle. Used axles often have scratches and/or foreign material present on the outer surface which can prevent the CBD Wheels from fitting onto the axle properly (yes - the tolerances are that close...).
- Ensure the inside face of the wheel is perpendicular to the axle before pushing the wheel onto the axle. When the axle is lined up properly with the CBD Wheels axle bore, minimal effort should be required to push the wheel onto the axle. A small but noticeable amount of resistance is normal - this "snug" fit is part of the CBD Wheels design. Never force the wheel onto the axle!
- Even with precision machined parts, there will be some variation from one part to the next. This holds true for the recommended Slot.it (tm) axles and CBD Wheels. Occasionally you may have an axle with a slightly larger than normal outer diameter and a CBD Wheel with a slightly smaller inner diameter (axle bore) - the result may be a very "snug" fit. When this occurs, slowly twisting the CBD Wheel as it is being pushed onto the axle will sometimes help. Again, don't force the wheel on the axle!
- If a given CBD Wheel cannot be pushed onto the axle after following the tips above, try using another (new) axle if one is available.
- Don't overtighten the retaining set screw! The set screw just needs to be snug - overtightening can strip the threads in the wheel. This tip applies to all aluminum "set screw" wheels - not just CBD Wheels.
