Crawler Innovations is pleased to announce our new CNC machined aluminum weights for the Vanquish Products Dirty Harry 2.2 bead lock wheel. These aluminum weights fit both the version 1 and version 2 VP DH wheel. These weights are CNC machined to the same exact dimensions and tolerances as the VP stainless steel weight. These are the final production version and the fit and quality is beautiful. These are a huge improvement over the proto types we had at Nationals in both the fit and look. This is not cut down bar stock, these are CNC machined down to the correct VP DH wheel weight dimensions.
One aluminum weight is 1/3 the weight of the standard 1 ounce VP stainless weight.
You might be asking why aluminum? Well there are several reasons.
1. The aluminum weight allows for the tuning of the weight in your wheels in smaller increments. You can now fine tune the front or rear bead locks without being tied to the 1oz increments of the VP stainless steel weight.
2. Aesthetics / Looks. I like to run four stainless steel slugs in the front of my crawlers but I don't like how four stainless slugs looks. By using three aluminum weights and three stainless steel weights, I fully fill the bead lock wheel for the look I like and I still keep the same weight.
3. Deception. Now you can run fully slugged in the front of your crawler and no one will know if they are aluminum or stainless weights. Why let someone else know exactly what your competition crawler weighs or whether that weight helped you make that last climb or not? Every driver is looking for an advantage and by using the aluminum weights it can help you keep yours.
These are sold in a set of 6 for $7.49
