Thread: Reducing 1.9's

    Default Reducing 1.9's

    Not sure if there is any interest in this or not.
    I reduced a set of 1.9 flat irons the other day just to try my hand at it. Turns out it makes the tires way more scale and actually give them some shape.
    They still go on 1.9 wheels fine, infact maybe even better.
    Once I get all the mud cleaned off of them I'll post some pics.

    pics.. kinda hard to see I guess in the pics, but it really made them more scale looking.

    The dead seats better and they get a bit of bulge to them. Those are both 31mm wheels.

    I'm no paint shop artist, but I marked it out in red to show the cuts and section to be removed.



    Cut glue repeat.

    likeing how the tires look. :)

    do you use CA glue on the tires, or a rubber cement, and do you need to re-inforce the inside with something ( old inner tube )?

    I use insta-cure+ CA. Its nice because it doesn't crust up like alot of glues. As for re enforcing them.. I didn't use anything and they been holding up great. And I am not the easiest guy on tires either. Lots of weight and wheel speed.
