No doubt. I hear ya. I would do the same. I don't know anyone who's been ripped off like that here in the central U.S. I'm sure it happens to some people though.

Yeah CRT rims fit with the same off-set. I would personally just go with the losi rims and cut the bead of your tire. I have ran both and the losi rims make the car feel way better, but that was with holeshots and bowties. I felt that the CRT rims just did not feel right on the track for me, but i am a racer and if you are just bashing then the CRT rims will work just fine.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

I have been running my truck now for a few weeks and it is pretty dialed.. I ran into a problem this past weekend though.

I went to the 1st round of the glorcs series that was being held at one of the local track here. My truck was rediculos... after round 1, I was 2 seconds off TQ, which put me 2nd.. this was with 3 different crashes, all which resulted in needing marshalling..

after this, my truck seemed to lack somthing. It felt like the receiver pack was dieing. My steering servo (KO2363) would barely turn the wheels. but my throttle servo was fine. Somthing was seriously binding. I cleaned the dirt out of the bellcrank area and all seemed well... round 4, the track was super dialed and 5 guys went faster... putting me 6th for the main... i still had the same problem.

The main... it took 1 lap for my problem to become a "benching" problem.

My wheels were locked.. i figured the servo just died.. but to my surprise, take the horn off and it works 100%. The servo saver nut backed off, and was binding on the chassis so bad, its like I put "the club" on the steering wheel...

so... to make a long story short... keep an eye on your servo savers..

truck was dialed...
