I ran the Revolvers last Friday, Saturday and Sunday, about 1/2 a gallon of fuel. M2 compound, V3 Rear and V2 front on an MBX 6.

Our track has a hard packed section and also super loose zone. Very noticeable difference from the stock crimefighters that come in the kit. The wide rear tires really make the rear end more stable. The low profile aspect, both front and rear, seems to transfer more "feeling" from the suspension.

Just my two cents

So is that a wider tire designed to fit on standard 1/8 buggy wheels?



Answered my own question -> http://www.redrc.net/2008/10/pro-lin...locity-wheels/

Kosher for racing?

You need the new V3 wheels to fit the V3 tires.

I believe they will only fit the v3 wheels but not positive that they wont glue up on a v2. I just mounted a set this weekend and they are pretty awesome looking!

They're a little wider (not truggy wide). And having a wider rear tire is the norm w/ 1/10 buggy 4wd.

My only problem w/ it is, there are only those ugly dish wheels available for 'em. I hate dish wheels (ugly factor).

these might jsut be the tires i was looking for! need sumthing smaller them a crime fighter but not as small as the inside job,
Only problem is were are you guys finding the V3 size wheels and tires?? and are you supposed to run the V3 size only in the rear or could you run them in the front too? maybe get rid of that last little bit of push my car has??
