I am running 1/2 offset crimefighter mtr's right now and soon will need a new set. I want to try Lpr's and definetly 0 offset. Some guys run Bowties and some run Crimefighters. Anyone ran Bowfighters? And if so which front and rear and why?

I am running Crime Fighters on the front and Bow Ties on the rear.
The Crime Fighters give better side bite which translates into more steering, and the Bow Ties give better forward bite which translates into better acceleration.

Are you using zero or 1/2 inch off-set wheels? Which do you prefer and why? Thanks

I have used both, but now I only use zero offset. 1/2 offset wheels make it way too wide.
It feels more nimble with the proper wheels on it.

Standard offset with LPR tire all day .... The steering is crazy on the TR, plus you can get the the tight spots for the pass

Trinity foams for me.... I like lightweight rotating mass. There is a big difference between to two foams. With the trinity bomb one foams you can leave to balancer in the closet

Colin you will love them ... How has your TR been doing against your local competetion?? I have had the TR since the release date an I have totally improved with this truck. I race against all the top brands out there an I can tell you this... I wouldn't trade my TR for anything... in stock form with a couple adjustments it is awesome, but add the BCE chassis an you take the TR to another level I hope after the RE-MATRIX we get a RE-MATRIX TR It should be $$$

I am loving my TR. I think I have won 12 out of the last 15 races with it.

I have done a lot to mine and it is very similar to a BCE converted TR. It is so easy to drive and is very strong as well.

Can't wait for the buggy and truggy!!!
