I'm glad you fixed those. It was pretty rough in a few spots that weren't there before. I'm debating on getting a buggy. It seems like the trucks have a hard time getting enough punch with the really short approaches. And when you do get enough, it just lights up the tires and you end up even slower. (like me today with the 12X2!)

I'll end up with an offroad sometime before long. I am just really having a blast in on-road, and doing really well. Been running expert stock, but it's just too slow, going to pick up a brushless system, and getting some mod motors custom made for me, should be some of the fastest motors SoCal has ever seen

Definately not blue groove, it takes a while to get that going. They are right next to roller skate land on Mission Gorge.

Just be sure whatever tire you get is in a soft compound. Losi Red or pink, or Pro-Line M3. You are going to need as much traction you can get until the track gets a groove..

LosiFromHell986 Not sure if the tires you have will work well. I have found bowties and either proline step pins or losi step pins are the best all around tire and like Randy said, a soft compound like m3 for proline and pink or red if you go with losi should work the best. hope to see you out there.
