Hi Folks! I just found one of these in a 2013 with 4K on the ODO at a price I cannot shake at. Was a GM owned car..... I take it you guys like this thing. I was taken by surprise how beautiful it was in person. Great drive too, much better than the 2010-2011's I had owned.

Good luck with your future purchase. I bought mine for the color. You are familiar with multiple Camaros so have already found answers to your questions. This might be of assistance if you haven't run across it before. http://buydropstop.com/ Enjoy. I've had over 200 kids have their pictures taken in the drivers seat with their permagrins. Until it got parked in the garage I was still running into those that were unaware of the Hot Wheels Edition Camaro. Can't wait for spring!

In May of 2013 I purchased a Hot Wheel Camaro for my son, and this is going to sound crazy, but he is only one. I wish my dad did that for me and had a cool car to give me when I was 16.

Anyway, I rarely drive it; I only have around 2500 miles on it. Most of the time it just sits in my garage. I have been having trouble keeping air in the tires. One of the tires looses air down to 6 PSI when I let it sit for 30 days. I have taken it to the dealer twice, but since I didn’t buy the tire protection plan they give me a hard time. But, with persistence, they do look at my car for free. I just gave them over $40K, it is the least they can do. They said the tire lost a bead the first time. The second time they said the wheel had a lot of burrs on it and they had to grind them down. I noticed the tire was low again and I have only driven it 5 miles since the last time I was there. We will see if they look at it again.

Is anyone else having this problem?

The air pressure changes a lot with the low profile tire, but I haven't had it drop that much. Some times when the temp goes down, the tire pressure is a few pounds low, but come back up after it in the road for a bit. I don't drive mine much either. Only 700 miles since August! Will put some miles on it this spring and summer with some planned trips. I would take it to a good tire shop, you have a leak somewhere!

Get them filled with Nitrogen. With the colder weather, the air in your tire changes density and will slowly leak out over time. Nitrogen however does not do that with the cold weather.

For example I have nitrogen in my winter tires on my truck. It gets down to -40C/F and I never have a tire pressure issue.

Most major tire shops and dealerships are able to swap the air out for nitrogen for a fairly cheap price, and it is worth every penny. I have nitrogen in the tires on my Camaro and it is sitting in the garage stored for the winter, and the tires look just the same as the day I parked it back in October.

Can you try a different dealer? Not sure what they mean 'lost a bead'

There are multiple things that can contribute to air loss:
1-tire
..a-foreign object (duh)
..b-crack in the inner liner of the tire (could happen if you hit a pothole)
..c-damage to the bead- could have happened during mounting
..d-burr on the bead -like some flashing or stamping
..e-not seated properly... this would also lead to vibration
2-wheel
..a-porosity in the wheel casting
..b-crack in the wheel (likely on inboard side)-could happen if you hit a pothole
..c-machining error at valve
3-junk stuck between tire and wheel
4-loose or cracked valve stem itself
5-loose valve core inside the stem

If you are able, here is what i might try in your garage, just to prove to yourself:
1-remove tire/wheel and lay it down on a flat and level surface -face up.
2-Using Simple Green.... squirt a little in the bead area where the tire and wheel meet, and over the valve stem area.
3-gently pour some water in over the Simple Green to spread it around some.. not to wash it away
4-Look and wait. give it 10-30 mins if you have to . If there is a leak, it will show teeny tiny bubbles where it originates from... and you should be able to see them move
5-if that didn't work, flip the tire/wheel over (protect the face of the wheel)and repeat step 2-4
6-if you find leaks, use a grease pen or tape to mark where they are-then take it back to the dealer

that works well for bead leaks... you can so similar on the tread, but its a little tougher to to

Hope that can help

Hey Fish-man, saw a picture last night from Antonio for a hot wheels shock tower cap.....NICE.......

Are you planning to leave them on 100% or only install for shows? He's working on our spinners very talented!

Hey B
Yeah, Tony came up with a winner with those caps
Not sure about leaving on or show-only... that strut can really flex

how are you attaching the spinners? take a look at Gloryder caps (glo-ryder)

I will say that it is a custom one-off piece that will suit the rareness of the HWSE car, especially for those of us who have one of the 36 in Canada!
Just wanted to give an update on this mod. I'm still waiting for it to be completed, but it is going to be started soon and I will have it before the driving season commences (April...ish)!

I will give a hint though. It is painted. That is all.
