Trust me, I want them too, but I dont have any "clout" in that area. I just relay information.

We dont have anything at the moment that I would consider equivalent. A tire that works in similar conditions is on our project list, but we are extremely busy at the moment.

Wow, that is actually pretty cool! It would be fun to go to some of the 1/8th scale dedicated tracks with that and a big brushless/lipo combo.

Not all that much different than we used to do back in the LXT/RC10T days with narrower cut down front truck ribbed tires, except for the buggy body and wing. Take the Losi 6 rib front truck tires, cut out 2 ribs, glue back together. Then cut down the front rims just outside the inner tire bead. And the RC10T came stock with optional narrow front rims and tires. Eventually, I think ROAR outlawed narrow front truck tires. Looks like they're coming back!

Seems so prolly not too intensive looking at the parts. what tires can i run on the front and rear, are they j82 specific, do you have a clay compound coming soon ?

i just dont see why people are all giddy to take it to a big 8th scale track or something. why not just drive your brushelss t4?

andy and JC dont take this the wrong im not really insulting the product, its actually pretty sweet, im just trying to figure out its purpose and figure out what people are seeing it as

^^^ thats what I thought at first. It's a cool idea its just that in my eyes I cannot see the reason why it was made. I mean I dont think it will get its own class and I dont think the narrow tires will become legal in truck class so is it basically just to look at and have fun?
