thank you for the info Iíll check it out my LHS has tons of axial and Traxxas partsmy only complaint this far is I keep breaking the right side or passenger side front CHUB after looking around a bit I found RCPlanet had 1pr of the aluminum 180003S front CHUBS instock so I snatched there last pair up Iím hoping that the aluminum ones are going to add the durability to this rig as Iíve grown fond of the bugger

did you get the pit bulls if so which ones and what do you think of them as I to am leaning towards some pit bulls with better foams going to keep rocking the stock wheels cause I really donít think there are any better dual bead lock rims out there without spending $150ish and Iíll never in my life pay $150 for 4 rc car wheels donít get me wrong there are some really bad arse wheels out there but I canít justify the money they want for a set

no I didn't get them yet. I wanna get the 1.9 rock beasts. I had them on a scx10 I had and they gripped everything like glue wet or dry. I tested them on my old vw jetta windshield in the rain and they didn't give up any traction. For foams I went with ci foams and emailed them with what rig tires and how much it weighed and they recommended which dual stage foams to use

picked up a extremely gently used set of 4 1.9 pit bull rock beast xl from rcc for next to nothing with stock pit bull foams. Gonna try and get out tomorrow to the local trail after the handy dude is done at my apt

The redcat broke in the middle of summer, well now I'm finally fixing it. I stripped the plastic locker in the diff, so far I think its worth the extra to get the pro version. I have some cross axles from my demon that I'm installing on it.
