    I can't think of anyone that sells a spoked wheel for the VMax. You might have to get one custom laced.

    there was a company in the uk that did a set years ago,i`ll see if i can track them down.
    if not have you contacted someone like rc components who do wheels?
    maybe they can point you in the right direction.
    failing that,get the hubs made and pick up some rims and lace it yourself:eusa_dance:

    That is my plan, I know there has to be a hub that will mount up to the breaks maybe a Vstar?
