Modding Plastics


#1

Hey Guys, I’ve been wondering wheter these were possible:

  1. Putting metal rims on a plastic to turn it a hybrid EG: adding metal to Speedmaker to make a homemade Speeder.

  2. Make a custom starburst.

3.Adding internal weight systems

You should check out some of BIST’s work. They have some really nice mods. Here’s a picture of their SpeedMaker mod:

They have many other mods. You can see them all here: http://bist.it/mods.html.

You can just ask them:info@bist.it

Starburst just cut with a knife. Maybe you can add metal rims by cutting some rims out of a soda can or something, and sand the plastic until it fits into the rim. As for internal weight, you can fill the gap where the cap is with o-rings, metal rings, fishing weights???, sand, lead, glue…

Put a little sandbag in there, put the caps on. THAT would be heavy!

It’ll be possible, but not easy! :stuck_out_tongue:

Add wheight by putting clay where u thumb grind and put the caps back on. :wink:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Very funny. Actually, to put rims on a yoyo, you need
to cut custom rings off another yoyo with a lathe or make your own on a lathe, then cut the yoyo
on lathe to fit the rims. That’d be wonderful if cutting soda cans for this purpose worked. I’m sure
someone will try.
