Thats good news...

I'm curious and this may be a dumb ques - what is it that makes these diff front to rear? Seems like anywhere I look there is always one end or the other thats sold out. Is there a real diff I'm just not aware of?

The stock wheels have a slightly different offset, I think, not too sure about the aftermarket wheels.

OK the results are in.

I couldnt have run these tires any harder than I did today. They held up perfectly. Ballooning, Bashing, Hard turns on road, Hard turns off road. No trouble. NONE. Im thinking the people that had trouble with them didnt spend the time when they put them together to make sure the were seated properly.

By the way: The difference in the front and rear rims is a very minuscule offset from one to the other (front to rear). It took me a minute to notice it when I was trying to find the difference myself.

Cool, at least now I know why there are fronts a rears. Good report - I was hoping you wouldn't be able to make them come apart.

I'm buying a set tonight, have to get them from 2 diff places since neither have both "ends" in stock, but at least I'll have a proper set.

Thanks!

I have a set on the way!!

yes loose dirt as well. Nice roosts. I think they grabbed slightly better than stock in the loose stuff. But If you really want to run in loose stuff alot maybe paddles would be best for that. Comin out of the loose stuff though they grabbed so hard I was wondering if I was gonna snap something

BTW: they do seem to be 1-2mm wider there was a significant increase in tire rub on the body during turns. I trimmed about a 1/4 inch of the wheel wells and will try it later.

I suggest this throttle curve. [Black] is stock, [Yellow] is suggested value, [Red] is denoted EPA regulation value asset.

They freaking rock!!!
Hardest part was getting the tires ff of the old rims with an Xacto blade, don't want to slip!
Ran good until I hit a basketball pole sideways doing about 25, broke a huge chunk off of my chassis, which is now basically shot.

Thinking about making a chassis for it out of steel or aluminum, but if I sell my xbox Racing Wheel for say $60, the pre-fabbed aluminum chassis will be worth it, unless my LHS has a used Slash chassis he will let go cheap, then I could sell some more stuff and get another LiPo.

get a thundertech outlaw racing chassis for the slash. Makes them handle way better. Lower CG.

Me and my buddy have been fabin stuff from aluminum stock a lot lately. Tmax bulkheads, a roll bar (of sorts) for the slash, skid plates. It's fun makin your own parts. Cheaper too as long as you dont screw up alot.

Well today and yesterday, took the talons off my nitro stampede and plopped them onto the Slash. Well see dad got a mulch pile for our gardens well I used it as the perfect jump. Slash almost cleared my fence as did the nitro after the Slash died. And my friend and his nitro did good too. Rained today but I had the esc all waterproofed and set out. It was fun but I have so much wear on the rears that there was little traction on the wet road and especially on the wet driveway.
