Broke March 24, 2013
Reviewer: Tom Bray 3189 from Placerville, CA  
3 broke in one regional. Almost cost us a Regional Win. Would not suggest you use these if you are a contender.

We had a broken wheel in the semi-finals.  Cracked through two spokes and the rim.

Broken Wheels March 18, 2013
Reviewer: Dick Field Team 1413 from Clarksville, VA  
The wheels provided good traction but failed during Regional competition matches. Three adjacent spokes cracked and sheared on both drive wheels. Robot to robot interaction was frequent and running over disc was common. Not strong enough or there was a manufacturing flaw. We got 6 matches completed before failure.
