actually, only the medium ones are available the soft ones will be coming out shortly - at least the last time I looked at Stormer..

I don't know if HPI has plans for a harder compound non-drift tire

Actually, I am getting ready to sell my 510 body if anyone is interested. All I have done is cut out the body and the rear panel. I am also going to be selling the rims and tires that came with the kit. I love the body but I am going to run something else.........PM me if interested!!

yes there is...if you look at the pics on the exotek website, you see holes in the upper deck behind the steering post mounts that will allow for the laydown shocks

http://www.exotekracing.com/EXOTEK_N.../7/21_CRX.html

plus, mike actually said it can use shocks mounted both ways
