Roll speed is slower.

Euros

The tires for the Euros have a pretty tall sidewall.....

BTW, thanks again to REdbull for the diff putty....

Can't wait to try the front diff this week!

HPI Silver springs?? Is that like a magic option? I have all Yokomo springs, how are the HPI ones compared to those?

Also noticed he's using the Yokomo rear wing? Anyone try them yet?

just ran them in modified in the winter for like 5 batteries and the right rear one broke instantly. is there any way you make 'em more durable??

i just took them out of the package and put some lubricating oil in there. that was it. took like 5 batteries and gone.

You need to disassemble, clean everything, center drive pins, locktite grub screws, and use a good high load lubricant
From the package they are loosely assembled, with a rust protectant

You wouldn't run a diff from out of the package, the same deal, nothing is ready to run, even though some Yokomo parts are pre-assembled

Magic, no
Easy to drive, yes
Wing is cool for sure, but maybe mod speed is where it really shines ?
