Depends on your conditions. I'm currently running 2.4's but there have been some times with the drier weather that 2.2's might have had an edge.

His cars are late 80's McClaren Honda F1 inspired. Great tribute to dominant cars. The McClarens main sponsor was Marlboro.

I asked the same question in my regional RCTech thread. I was told they seemed pretty dialed, but nobody is running them as they aren't ROAR approved.

Well, AE, JC, AKA and proline are making them. I am unsure what ROAR's deal is.

Are you running them yet? I will be putting new tires on my new buggy next month, I was debating trying 2.4s as well.

ROAR tries (i said tries! don't hang me over it) not to favor one company over another so the rules wouldn't be updated until at least a few companies had this type of product. The only time(s) I've seen anything limited to one brand or design was the initial layout of brushless motors (novak, and i'm not even sure this counts especially for the chaos that could have ensued without it).. and now I'm forgetting the other one.

They seem to have less sidewall flex for high bite. But they also tear easier.

IMO I am not a fan of the 2.4's at all. The bead is to small and even when I have bought pre-mount aka's they have ripped off the wheel, IN 17.5. And the 2.2's just have so much more traction in my opinion and that is not in my head I tried 2.4's one day when the track was a little loose and they were ok then I went to my 2.2 EVO Converions and they were AMAZING so much more traction and the same tire.

Again that is my opinion but I know A LOT of the AKA guys have been running the Chainlinks in 2.2 form and its not just because the 2.4's aren't ROAR legal its bc they work better that way in bumpy and looser conditions.
