This is my first run with 4w buggy and like others curious as to what to try for outdoors, since front matching 4wd tires are limited.


Wait it has slop, what slop... towers breaking what towers, parts restraints... hmmm weird cause I found parts just the other day... LOL

Hmmm I wonder what shinny part I can add that will make it perform better... LOL

Oh this past weekend with running the Schelle chassis, I ran ***** tires and were hooked up... LOL
What?? I didn't know they made Integy tires!!

Aka doesn't make impacts for the fronts, at least from what I saw. There is no other outdoor track in the area that runs 10th scale so showing up and seeing what people run is not an option.

All that said, all this tire info would be the same no matter what 4wd buggy you had, so it doesn't really belong here in the D413 thread.
Of course discussion of tires that work well is appropriate for this thread.

This confuses me. If there are no 10th scale tracks in your area, who are you going to race against?

Who is this ice cream?

If you mean me, I have to assume you're talking about the B5M thread.

Don't believe I've ever said much of anything in this thread about what is or isn't appropriate. Aside from the one comment today about tire discussion, of course. Same with the Tekno threads I participate in. There just isn't a need since most discussion is reasonably respectful.

The only place I've had anything to say is the B5M thread when people try to contribute something that I find interesting then get jumped on by a few kids in need of some supervision from their parents while they're online.

I'm really looking forward to trying this buggy outside, once weather is good enough around here
I am running the same setup to the dot with Rc shox pistons. The only difference is that I have my orion r10.1 up front and my rx in the rear. Car was so much better with the Schelle Chassis in my option
