When our engineer Tim Gibson sat down to design a new set of wheels for the Challenger II, he knew that we needed material of the highest possible quality much faster than most companies could deliver it. To solve our problem, we turned to ThyssenKrupp Material N.A. They were able to supply us with the 4,000lbs of 2024-T3 aerospace grade aluminum we needed to build just 16 wheels for the streamliner. We'll update this entry with pictures of the manufacturing process and the final product as our friends at SK Specialities shape the raw aluminum into some of the fastest wheels on the planet. Thanks TKMNA!
