Length:  7"

Width:  1.75"

Height: Approximate: 0.60

Three Wheel Rider design. Front steering axle has been slotted so that fining tuning may be attained without the use of pliers.

We guarantee our claims.  See our Video.

 

 

 

Our Pro Ultra-Lites

The Pro Ultra-Lites weigh in at 1g each with 100's of hours of testing on our track,  B.S.A. racing and a WIRL Championship under their belt, you can be assured these are not just any lightened and weakened 1 race wonders.

Lettering on the inside of the wheel has been REMOVED.

 PLEASE BE AWARE AND BID ACCORDINGLY.  IF YOU GET D/Q, I will not be help responsible. 

These wheels have been machined both on the outside and inside.  CHECK YOUR RULES!

This would make a great OUTLAW car.

 

I don't make them much faster than these. Please see our auctions. Warp³ cars reach minimum average speeds of 12.50 ft/second on my 30.75 ft pin to eye Aluminum track. Documented with video. You can hear the difference!  Or in this case... its nearly silent.  AND THIS IS WITH GRAPHITE!!! Just listen to the wheels spin at the slope! And listen to them spin after the race. Calculated speeds of 15+ fps at the last 10 feet of track. And Pure DRY LUBE. NO oil. No cheating. All of them are STILL blazing fast at the finish line! How do I know? Because I have a custom made prototype timer that allows me to get exact speeds at certain parts of my track. I do not know who else does this and DOCUMENTS it for you to see. Watch the video!

 

With the info I give you, and the info you have from your previous races, you should be able to make an educated calculation on how well these cars will run for your race.  Just remember to get exact distances between starting gate and finish line.  My track is actually 35 feet long, but with only 30.75 ft of measured running distance.   As far as I know, I am the only builder that shows you the car you are buying running on a track with this type of collected data. I have only talked a small handfull of people in the past 6 years that even record this type data.  I was told that 15+fps AT END OF TRACK  is an impressive set of times especially for GRAPHITE!   Do your research.  Find out yourself !  Just don't take my word for it.  Remember buyers, just because you have all these awards for the league that you own and run, doesn't mean that you put the same love into the cars you make for others.

Get as much as info about the car you are buying before you spend your hard earned money!

This car is tuned to ride the center guide.  The method I utilize is like taking an airplane to its top speed versus just putting it in a wind tunnel like a tuning board does.  You do not know if it is stable until you stress it.  I stress these cars.!   I simulate over 300 races per documented car at the car’s top speed (ten minutes at 10MPH)!  NO ONE ELSE DOES THIS!  This is with DRY LUBE and not cheating with OIL! 

Please look at all the pictures I provide.  I show you that I utilize nearly all the “tips and secrets” that they tell you to use.  Shorten front wheel width, quick start front end, longer wheel base, proper center of gravity, 3 wheel racer, rear wheels with chamfer to run on axle head and not body of car , machines lathed wheels,  machined axles,  and aerodynamic body design to reduce drag.

As much as these cars are designed for kids, these are fined tuned machines.  Pushing a car on the ground such as a hot wheels car will change the characteristics this car will race.  This car is tuned to race.  Please be aware of this when you child is personalizing their car.  Please treat it like a baby before racing; afterwards let them go at it.  I have had cars in the past that were raced down the driveway prior to race day, then the car did not perform as described and I was held at fault.

 

I answer most questions within 8 hours. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
