yeah good question.

I have some bulk black carbon fiber and some clear I used on my Schumacher KF
carbon chassis. The clear is sweet, keeps the carbon look.

Default Hot bodies d413 stock wheels

I run stock white wheels but come across a ton of people asking about different wheels that fit. Are the stocks not as good as the others? Just curious if the other brands offer better durability and offset or something?

Oh OK I ordered 2 sets off stock wheels and thought maybe people bought other brands for better durability or something.

Also the stock wheels cost a little more depending on where you buy.... I.E.... $10 for (2) HB wheels and $6 for DE's

Other brand wheels are also usually easier to get. My local stores don't care much HB wheels but they have the TLR parts. Also since the TLR wheels fit, I can use all the EVO style wheels too. Just another option.

If anyone is thinking of trying different pistons try the vision racing products piston. They are worth the money.

Anybody else using chain wax on the CVD's / Axles ? Lot of the local racers use it and that's what they recommended for me to use.
