They (wheels) are all the same at 2.4", so they are all interchangeable .

The matte finish is gone and our 2.4 wheels are certainly stiffer than the other 2 mentioned

That is great to hear. lately these newer wheels are twisting the webbing in 17.5 on high bit. Hoping these work better. Now I just need SRS to get some smoothies in stock.

Are most people modifying the dirt tech foams to make them a little softer? And if so doing what?

OK so the 2.4 wheels and tires are now legal?

Guess I missed the official announcement about it.

I read roar was making them legal for next year. But as of today, they are not.

I won't spend a dime on the 2.4 setup until it's official. Too often ROAR has changed its mind and hung racers out to dry. Not this guy. LOL

I just placed an order for 2.2 webs and 60mm foams.(didnt know the difference of 2.2/60mm) This is not perfect timing. Can I return 2.2 webs for 60mm as the foams I bought wont fit the tires I bought?

All you have to to is trim the bead off the 2.2 tires and mount them as 60mm. That's what I have been doing for the last month or so.

See the new smoothies on the site,

Dumb question if anyone can answer, will there be some 4wd front smoothies? Would seem to make sense to me if those would have come out at the same time as the 2wd buggy ones. Hopefully those are in the pipe line to hit the site soon, before Cactus would be ideal.
