no doubt but the comparison between new dirt techs and the "red foam" makes me want dirt techs for everything do like the 8th scale/sc coming too. just missing stadium truck :P

Default tire question

I have just ran a set of stacker on my truggy. I have got to say dang these tires are on rail for my track what a great tire for truggy and this is a blown out track and with a alot of fluff.

now here the dumb question would the buggy version have the same impact as the truggy version. only reason why im asking is cause the tire is smaller in diameter. i was told this was a blue grooved hard packed tire.

will it worked great for a blown out track with hard dirt that is mixed with clay and black dirt. now the ground is rock solid and the drive line does clear some what. but most of the time it has a lot of fluff almost to the point you could lose you car in some spots and other spot are clear. i mean forget the city block and impact and the dd and sub. this tire on my truggy had it glued to the track. now i want to glue my buggy to the track too.

Obviously a buggy won't be as easy to drive as a truggy on a rough/blown out track, but tire patterns should work similar for both.

They still come with the white open-cell foam. We are looking into offering them with CC inserts, but that will be a ways off.

Is the 0125 RB5 wing still available? My LHS told me it was discontinued but Amain still has it in stock? I really like this wing on my ZX5.

I agree with Randy. Natural high bite is fine but sealed/sugared tracks are too much. The orange and red compounds work well on those types of tracks.
