The first run kit wheels had some breakage problems...it wasn't every set in every kit, just random reports of some wheels breaking. I have 2 sets of first run wheels that have done me fine. The wheels in current kits are fine.



For tire removal...it's just a matter of preference. Some use acetone, some bake'em in the oven. The oven bake method seem to sound alot easier...I've never done it personally so I won't even begin to describe it.


Somebody tell this man how to bake your tires off.

Lance,

Shoot me a email wth everthing I need and I'll shoot ya some of our new dish wheels. We had some random issues but everything should be solid on the dish wheels.

Antone...check out amain on the kits. If you get the monthly coupons from them you can grab it up for a steal!

This is not with a lipo pack only a standard rx pack.

I will add this is with our option chassis, Light weight pillow balls, big bores and alum rear hubs. This is how we will offer the buggy very soon!
Any idea when the new kits will be out with all the goodies? Anyone going to the Nitro Challenge?
