Default Not throwing salt....

But I pleaded with SweepRacing to make MT tires 3 YEARS ago. As I recall they were focused of the stadium and on road 1/10 scale. I'm going to find that old thread...might even have an email from them as well.

However, none of that stopped me from putting my name on the waiting list.

Me too. I want a set of the road versions for driving my BB Revo project on-road to not tear up the Badlands. Truck won't be done for at least a couple weeks and I hope these are released soon, I got my name on the list too. Fingers crossed!

LOL I hope so, we've been so busy at the shop that it's been painfully slow but it's getting there

Well here they are in all their glory. The seem nice, although they have a little air gap between the tires and the inserts. Well glued and good quality.

Got the tires!!! here they are compared to badlands. It is weird, the OD is actually just slightly smaller, but they are wider, but overall the look of them looks MUCH bigger with the low profile design.



It definitely is an aggressive look!





IT is a very different experience driving them. They obviously don't balloon AT ALL which is good. Due to this, I will have to re-gear to get back some top end speed.

They are somewhat pliable though, so they handle bumps just fine. The tread pattern did okay on loose gravel, but not as good as badlands.

They weren't very good at all on grass, there was a lot of wheels spin.

The truck doesn't wheelie anymore, some combination of lack of grip and lack of inertia from ballooning tires.

They did handle jumping VERY well, and I'm not sure why. Intuition would say they should land harder with less ability to absorb hits, but instead, they take off smooth and land very smooth.

less bounce I guess? You land and you're there, I think the suspension handles it more than the tires.

Even though they weigh more than the badlands, they FEEL lighter without the ballooning. Steering is better, control is better.


I'm gonna have to Give them more time to decide if I like them or not. Even though I got the offroad ones, I feel like these would be GREAT onroad. Lots of contact patch, square shoulders, etc. these or the street version would be AWESOME on asphalt I suspect.

Ill work on getting video.
