I would really like to see 17mm hub wheels for all the 2.8" tires they have. I think they'd be a big seller. 12mm hub wheels just don't hold up to the powerful brushless systems in trucks nowadays.

Why would you pull up a thread that is two years old?

Not to be a douche, but why not? He wants to share his suggestion.

Why be a dingleberry? I saw that it was ancient.

The thread popped up on the bottom of the page in a "similar topics" category when I was posting on another thread. It caught my attention ...so I started it back up.

Why would YOU post such a worthless post?

Actually is a rule they ask you to search topics before starting a new one helps condense good information

Pro-Line has really stepped up their game this year. From compound adjustments to foam development, their stuff has gotten better by leaps and bounds this year and the results on track speak for themselves. I'm sure truggy foams will be updated soon - the Blockade and Tazer truggy tires are super dialed so it only stands to reason the foam will be updated soon. The lightened buggy wheels are really good too, especially on blown out tracks. Gives a little extra suspension compliance. And it takes about 40 grams off the weight of the vehicle too. I'd like to see a hybrid buggy tire, like part holeshot, part blockade, or something along those lines.

Practice tires so we can save up for race tires for racing. Basically inexpensive tires for everyday driving to include foams. Just a thought.

Larger capacity "Cheater" fuel tanks for 1/8th scale racers that are in "open" mixed club races with electric buggies.
