What is the offset of the stock wheels?

I want to get some chrome wheels. I also need tires for my driveway (asphalt). The stock ones are toast.

Yeah, for the battery stay, with the floating mount, put a spacer/aluminum shim in there and a longer screw. I think I used one from the Tamiya 5.5mm aluminum pack for the spacer, but it's not a very critical element, so any plastic, or homemade piece will work.

I might be looking for an XI Sport roller for VTA.... just throwing a feeler out on the thread. Something on the cheap . From what I've seen they work pretty well for the class.

You can get new kits for $110 shipped. It's hard to get much cheaper than that.

I am looking for better tires that will be used on my driveway and in parking lots. I also want some nice, scale wheels. Recommendations?

Thank you.

I ordered my XI Sport from there. But I am asking which compound tires are good for a parking lot.

I bought Shimizu tires for my M06 mini and they have been great. It's a rear wheel drive. I would guess that their touring car tires a pretty good.

D compound X patterns from HPI have always been a good choice.
