wider tire. seems to fold over less and smooths out the corners on high bite. overall, makes the car feel more forgiving.

Need to be in the right places, and not share the metal properties of integy products. That's why you should run the schelle, not the JC. IIRC, the schelle third hole is farther in, the JC holes are just the same as stock, but added two inbetween.

I've been out for a while, what happened to integy? 10 years ago I feel they were on top of their game. I still use my integy hex tools.

It sounds like they cheaped out a but and use lower quality raw materials?

Do you use 2.2 or 2.4 wheels?

I think that its unnecessary extra weight that you are adding to a high-spot on the car. Its a vanity item.[/QUOTE]

I'm running the 4wd fronts on JC front wheels and I feel the same thing. I think they feel a little less edgy when brand new compared to the narrow fronts on narrow Schumacher rims. I also think the car feels more planted like a 4wd car but without the weight.
On the other end when they are wearing out, the push is less so I can drive them at least 8 or 10 more runs before I can't take it any more and throw the rims in the pickle jar.

Yeah....
When I was a newbie to race buggies, I accidentally purchased 4wd fronts that I managed to squeeze on to the 2WD front wheels. I didn't even realise I had 4WD tires until someone at the track pointed it out to me. The car (B5R at the time) was awesome.... And I thought I was a really good driver. Lol.

I remember way back with my XXX-BK2, we would mount up 4wd fronts on 2wd front wheels and the same with front wings back then

The ROAR rules indicate a max tire width of 44.45 mm and don't distinguish between 2wd and 4wd tires.
