B1 or C3 Wheel
Which is a better wheel to get. I see more c3's so I am a believer of seeing what people run then buying it. Not looking to break any speed records just looking for the best bang for the buck.

After some extensive testing and logging, I can see as high as 14.5 pounds of boost from my C3 wheel @ 8600 RPM. I know that may seem high, but it seems consistent with how much boost I saw from my stock wheel. With the stock wheel I saw as high as 9.5.

I'm told that in GENERAL the R&D wheels are heavier.
Both my B1 and E1 wheels are lighter than stock.
This COULD have an effect on clutch life.
As for how much boost one makes over the other, I don't know.

I would go with the B1, for the money I think its the best bang for your buck. I like the black anodized coating of the B1/E1 for salt water.

+1 I had a C3 wheel and switched to the B1...I much rather the C3 for both acceleration and top-speed. The B1 seems to be a bit more harsh on the clutch also as it "surges" or "flutters" more than the C3.

C1 = 147g
C3 = 151g
B1 = 125g
I just reinstalled the stocker so I can't confirm the exact weight, but when I weighed it last week I think it was about 20g lighter than the C1.
Another one to consider: E-tech claims their low boost wheel makes 14psi @ 8450 and is 25% lighter than the stock wheel.

I was under the impression that the B1 was bigger. Im glad I opened this thread. I had been told by another individual that the C3 was smaller and did not require the use of a powershot with the R1 reflash.
In reality, both of these wheels need a powershot with the R1 reflash. Correct?
