Tetsujin Super Rim
Hey all my RC drifting addicts, Evol here checking in again with some cool new drift gear that I think warrants a closer look.
In the somewhat underground (But always growing) world of RC Drift there is a name pretty common to our sliding brethren, yet will probably be completely unknown by your average RC basher in the United States. Team Tetsujin have been quietly producing some of the most unique and rare drift specific equipment for years now in Japan. In the past they were mostly known for the Tetsujin Kerbs system. A multi-color and customizable “rumble strip” that closely resembles the checkerboard patterns you see on the apexes on full-size race tracks. If you have seen any scale RC drift tracks in action on YouTube you have seen their products dotting the landscape.
More recently however Team Tetsujin has been moving forward rapidly creating a product that was nonexistent in the RC drift world until now. The Tetsujin Super Rim. This 2 piece wheel system features an adjustable offset allowing you to achieve the “hellaflush” look without having to keep the same wheel in multiple offsets just because you changed bodies. Its 2 piece design allows you to quickly and easily unlock the center portion of the wheel and change to whatever offset you need very quickly.
Just released in December 2014 these wheels are currently only available in 2 patterns, the Dahlia and the Jasmine (on pre order at the moment). Both are available in multiple colors that you can mix and match to create your own unique look.
Offsets are 3mm, 6mm, 9mm so that you can neatly tuck them under just about any shell that you own.
I was lucky enough to get to test some of these this weekend and let me tell you they are the real deal. Rugged and attractive I think Tetsujin has a winner on their hands. What do you think?
