It’s a package. It’s from Malaysia. It’s overpriced. It’s loose. And it’s got rubber tires. What could it be?
A few weeks ago, I was having fun on eBay. I saw a couple auctions for some items I thought were pretty neat and threw down some bids I did not expect would be enough to win the auction. And surely enough, I accidentally won one of them. Oops, I did not plan on paying for this but oh well. What did I win?
No, it’s not a stolen factory $uper, it’s just a few sets of neat tuner rims and tires. I won the auction at a total of $21.49, rounding out to $4.30 per set of wheels. I’m not really a wheel-swapper guy – I should be putting that money towards a replacement power drill instead – but even at a pricy $4.30 for a set of wheels, these are really neat. I haven’t the slightest clue of what I want to do with them. But I’m still a kid inside, time to play around!
I grabbed the R33 Skyline first. This casting was shown in the example photos from the eBay listing.
Also tried the R30 because it was sitting right next to my loose R33.
This counterfeit Kyosho Ferrari 458 Italia was conveniently within reaching distance and has a screw-on base.
Hmm, what else do I have that’s screw-on and within reaching distance?
If you’re looking for a set for yourself, search keywords “64 rubber tyres Kyosho”. Buy it now prices are absurd but you can try accidentally winning an auction like I did.
Also, does anyone have any suggestions on how to punch a 2-3mm diameter hole in some 5mm diameter sequins? If we’re able to figure this out, we’ll all have awesome disk brakes for our customs that can come for really cheap. [!!!]
