Schelle, either the black diamond oiled ceramic or the onyx oiled steel.
The steel would last longer but the ceramics are way smoother, just a matter on how much do you wanna spend?

It doesn't seem like it's stopping people from trying to get top dollar..... I looked on Sunday and it was kinda silly.
People.... just because you have Fox shocks and include a speed control doesn't mean the car is worth $400 lol

If you have an oval track in your area, build an oval car with the now "vintage" B5M if you have to buy the "latest and greatest". Or find a deserving local kid in need of a new ride, pay it forward. Just an idea.

But the market will only pay so much. Especially when the new car is coming and everyone knows it. So B5M's will have very little value.

The blockades are 2.2 inch right? Which is a smaller diameter than 61mm. I think you can still do it, but it will require a tire modification.

You need 2.2 wheels....not the larger 2.4/61mm versions. ASC9696 / 9691

The JConcepts Reflex tires (60mm) are pretty good on dusty hard packed surfaces, if its too wet they may clog up a bit though. Most of the loose track stuff is all on 2.2 wheels.
