Depends on the motor you're running. I run a Tekin and I'm running 72/32 with about 24 degrees of motor timing.

Will these work with the included wheel hexes?

The 22-4 wheels fit fine with the stock hexes. Also in your kit should have been a smaller front hex, which works with the AE wheels or 44.2 wheels

The car handled the rough stuff great and even with the big doubles flew fine too.
What tires will you be ordering?

I really liked the Chainlinks and Impacts for the track we were running on. They felt great in and out of the corners, and the buggy wouldn't wash out when you got on it. The 1st round I tried Chainlinks and were great, 2nd round ran Electrons and ran a little bit slower and 3rd round ran Impacts and track was dryer and ran fastest lap times and better TQ.

I tried Electrons as well, but made the car push and slide too much. The Electrons might have been better if the track was damp or just watered, but when there was dust or loam on the track nope.

Nah, don't get me wrong it's faster than all get out but it is ridiculously fun, too. I would never pull the 5.5 out of my car.

Anybody else try the Standard Tread Depth AKA Handlebars on this car? I just order a pair of those and Vektors for the front. BTW AKA is selling tires for $1 each on their closeout stuff, no foams but still insanely cheap.

It's kind of one of those things, if you have to ask, then it is likely way too much for you.

Like nearly every other thread specific to a vehicle, the first post has almost all the answers to the common questions of those that have not run the car.

Because it is SUCH an inconvenience to answer a simple question. The attitude that the vets can't answer the newbs questions is bad for the future of the forum/hobby. Also, your suggestion assumes the OP is updating the information with new findings that owners of the kit may have shared, if the OP hasn't updated then the person asking the question missed out on good info because you'd rather take the time to refer them to post #1 than just answer a simple question.

If you're getting beat by someone with a 13.5 in their car when you've got a 5.5 in your car, then the 5.5 is probably too much for you, and/or your track is so small that the 5.5 is useless.

Tires are track specific not car specific, so I think Clint is probably the only one here that could answer that question. Standard tread depth Handlebars could be the go to tire at some track somewhere, and they could be completely useless at your track, whether they were on a D413 or a Tyco Turbohopper.
