Those of you racing these on high grip surfaces, what tires/foams are you using? What shock/spring setup? Also, what wheels (other than the Ofna ones) work that are the same offset and will use standard stadium truck tires?

Thanks.

Check the Nitrohouse set up for shocks...HPI Firestorm wheels (there are a bunch of different styles) have the same offset and use stadium truck tires. Pro-line just came out with a closed cell foam for stadium trucks too. Racer's edge firm foams will work until those are released.

just refer to nitrohouse setup for TT/SC ~ screw down the rod to extends the shock travel. i think he uses a 4mm fuel tube. as for the steering rod, you can use the mod in nitrohouse. i'm using the traxxas 39mm turnbuckle camber link which i saw a guy posted in youtube.

I also used up my SC at the REv race this weekend and attacked alll the big jumps, no breaks and I had some lawndarts off the big jump. Good thing I still use the body brace or the Raptor would be done.
