Default Kyosho LAZER ZX-5 Rim/tire question

Hi, i have a ZX-5 i use on asphalt. Im using Pro-line dirt hawg 1 & 3 R/F

Im thinking of going with Panther slicks there low profile http://www.pantherteam.com/index.php...roducts_id=239

My question are there any other rims that fit the LAZER besides Kyosho's Like Losi Or something i could dye?

I have raced a lot of Touring cars, but with a 4WD on road car should i use softer spring & and shock oil. Also i replaced the center to a one way instead of all time 4WD any problems with doing that.

Thanks!

For the zx5 you can get a proline conversion axle from kyosho that allows you to use losi and associated rear rims. The axles work with the cvd/universals but not the swingshaft/dogbones.

You an take out the one way, put a front diff. If you have a shaft oneway, there is a part to convert it to full 4wd.

I dont have any part numbers at the moment. Also, if you post this on the kyosho offroad thread, there are many people more knowledgeble than I that can assist you.
