  2. I had one in one of my 100cc. I'm sorry to say, but it's not strong enough to support the weight of a 100cc. The metal parts are like tin beer can:(, and the wheel it is too soft foam:on_the_go:.

  3. That's SOLID information right there.

    I'm planning on using it on a 91" EF Yak. On reading a review on the 50cc size Hobbyking offers, it was deemed too small. So I chose to get the 80-100cc.

    Do you think it would be more suited to 50cc size?

  7. Yes, I think so....eventhough try to replace the foam wheel.
  8. Thank you.

    I will see how best to replace the foam wheel.

  9. Finally received the tailwheel set this past Saturday. My initial impression:-
    • Well made carbon fiber component-strong with a decent finish.
    • The metal portion that holds the wheel is not quite as sturdy as one would expect for a set suitable for a model over 35%. Notwithstanding, the finish is good.
    • The wheel is made of foam and, as recommended earlier, has been replaced with a Dubro 1.25" wheel I had available.
