It took long enough but its ready for casting.
started as just a 3d model

and almost a whole year later the master is ready to cast, the wheel is a 23" wheel kind of a oddball size it happened by accident as the wheel was supposed to be a 22" wheel theyll be out for sale in 2013 with the tires seen here.

Depending on reception these will follow too but instead of 1pc wheels they will be 2 piece ring and face so that the builder can set their own offset. the Pendulum wheel has been green lighted but will be modified so that it functions like its 1:1 counterpart

No it was printed in Belgium around 50$ total(25$ alone in shipping stupid fedex :banghead:) it did need cleanup and a lot of it to get it to cast-able condition. you might just want to get one wheel made and re-casted each wheel individually is 25$ a piece depending on the parts volume.

The followup set is coming soon as stated before they're 2 piece wheels first set however will be 23mm/21mm ring. I couldn't find someone to make me a 22mm/20mm ring and we had to carefully modify the pegasus rings.

this is basically how the wheels work you get sleeves and chips and you can set your own offsets.

It all depends on reception, you can do a buy in with at least 5 people that will cheapen the costs the wheel alone will cost 70$ to get made not including the molding and casting process which is around 140$ once its said and done and each person gets 2 sets of wheels.

Enlarged and modified Aoshima stretchwall i dont plan on ever releasing them. They break too much out of the 20 sets i made 5 or 6 still hold to the wheel the rest have snapped.
