Default Wet weather tires for dirt muddy conditions

Hi Guys,

Dont know if you remember but at the Pre-Worlds drivers was running slim line wheels & tires.

Does anyone know what they was & how they made them.

Believe you have to mod it yourself or has manf actually bought them into production?

Thanks

Something that was started by Mark Pavidis...... We made them ourselves by cutting the tire, wheel and foam. GRP has tires already molded this way now.

Used to run something similar a few years back, looked a bit like a wider 1/10th buggy spike tyre, but a bit wider.

I like panther Komodo dragons in the wet wet mud like conditions. A little wd40 doesn't hurt either.

Hi Guys,

Why are using the WD40 is it to stop the mud collecting onto the tires?
