These are great for street action and they look great (I use them in posed photos of the car), but on the track they are not nearly as good as some sweeps or any true racing tire... even after you warm them up. But they will last a long time.

Not sure about off-road tires. Lot's of body rub from the ballooning I would guess. (??)

Thanks a lot, I will try those out! I saw some cheap Kyosho ones, but those looked really cheap. lol

Hi guys. I'm still in the process of converting my RC8 over to IGT. In regards to the chassis braces, is it better to go with stiffer aluminum ones I have, or should I go with the lighter plastic ones that are currently on there?

I know this has probably already been posted, but is the R3 body for 325mm wheelbase or 360mm?

I really want one!

Default Got rained out today

Couldn't run the new warrior body that Charle B of CFX Paintworks:www.cfxpaintworks.com
did for me due to being rained out. At least the body gets to stay pretty for a little while longer. It looks waaay too sweet to run. Thanks so much CB!
