Default proline revolers vs bow ties and crime fighters

in what type of situation would you use revolvers vs bowties and crimefighters? the thread looks real close to me...i currently run bow ties in rear and crime fighters up front on my losi 8ight b. found a good deal on some revolvers and didnt know if it would be a good idea to get them or not. track is dusty, hard packed

thanks

If the track is not REALLY dusty, the Revolvers may be a good choice. There is less pin flex with the Revolvers then with Bowties or Crime Fighters, so you should be able to turn quicker laps with them. When they work, the work real well.

From my experience, bowties or ibeam type tires seem to work everywhere.

I personally run nothing but revolvers because I love them a lot! I have yet to not like them on any surface yet! They have a lot of side bite so make sure your setup will work with them! You will like them at least I do!
