Oh yah, oops! M2s are harder than M3s, and I don't know about XTR because I've not run them yet.

XTR's are the hardest compound. You can also try Holeshots if its not too sandy or soft of a dirt. M3's are generally a faster tire. Some tracks have high tire wear, but others don't. If you can get away with M3's, that compound would be the best.

I got my starter last week and put it together yesterday. A lot of parts.

I think putting the 8ight together will be easier than the starter box.

8ight has better instructions and diagrams of the hardware.

I am getting the tires(M3) at Tower, but what wheels will work? I want to buy them at Tower for the savings.

Thanks,

Manny

I had to cut the back of the battery box and let it hang out a little bit but it's well worth it. It's a 2 cell and is properly wired for balancing.

I tried the HT Batteries HT220. It fit but it didn't last. It's got 4 individual cells that are wired series/parallel to get the voltage and mah but improperly wired for balancing. Since each cell can not be balanced individually it just doesn't last.
The HT Battery LiPos all come with two leads. One is the standard Rx lead (or Dean's plug on the starter box pack) and the second lead is a balance charging lead. This lead plugged in to the HT Balance charger will charge each cell individually. So I'm not sure what HT Battery pack you got but every one I've seen has both leads and is wired properly. Did you buy it used?

Also the run time on my HT-220 has been great. I ran it this past weekend in my MBX5T and after one hour of run time it still read 7.64 volts on my React radio. Plus i would leave the radio and car on in the pits a good 5 minutes before every run. It should go well over 1-1/2 hours easily.

Pick your favorite style, no really big advantage to picking anything specific, they're all pretty much the same:

I purchased my buggy at amainhobbies.com. I like buying my hobby stuff at amainhobbies.com, but I have a membership at Tower that gives me free shipping and discounts.

I have just notice there is different sizes for wheels. Which one should you get?

Manny
