Didn't doctor the sidewalls with CA to help em slide off the walls etc. but did have to shoo goo the sidewalls on the rear after tearing the sidewalls at the rims and CA quit workin. (just like the thin wall Pit Shimz and Rides always do)
I like that CA sidewall idea tho, especially where we're heading cuz it's surrounded by solid walls and divided by boards everywhere.

That's they fix for traction rolling normally on foam tires. Mine only break when I drive badly and run into stuff, usually a tick too tight on a fast turn. I haven't noticed my tires grabbing as I skim the wall on occasion. I am pretty good about staying off the boards.

I also use Teflon spray or wax on the CA surface to make it even more slippery...

Any CA on the sidewalls will help with traction rolling as well as sliding across the boards, whether with nitro foam tires or F1 rubber tires. The thickness of the CA in F1 tires can be extreme if you are so inclined: you can get 2mm or 3mm on there, and polish/sand the surface before waxing it... It should be near impossible to break an arm after that !!!

On my F104 I run the fake plastic brake ducts on the fronts to keep my wheels from catching a board and riding up it with these rubber tires; they seem to grab everything!

I have a fantom 5000mah 2s lipo that I bought from someone on here. I just received it today and it doesn't fit in the car. It seems like its about 1/16 of an inch too long. It seems like its a standard size battery, and it just doesn't fit. I'm not sure what to do at this point.
