Default Losi X2000

I have been running Losi X2000 on my xxxcr for awhile now. I want to switch over to the new x3000. The pins look a little bigger has any one ran these tires before? I run them in red at SRS.

You don't want to run pink compound at SRS tho. Just try them and see, it won't hurt. To be honest M3 hole-shots work the best.


I would also recomend consulting your local team driver. Wheelie knows what he's talking about... sometimes .

I use m3 hole shots on wet track but, I am looking for a good dry track tire. I really like the X2000 in red for dry track but the X3000 look like the will have a little more traction and run time from the larger pins

Its always worth sacrificing a set of rims to see one way or the other.

x2000's have larger sidewalls than the x3000's, I thought the pins sizes were the same. I guess I have to take a closer look.

naa, those may work when holeshots don't, honestly it really depends on what your racing on. Different tires feel different in side bite and forward bite i would prolly just hold on to them. If they aren't good for the surface you will be suffering. Tires is like 80-90% of the set-up.

that is right. Horne was telling me the team drivers would cut a couple rows out of the x2000 to obtain the desired effect...and so the x3000 was born.

X3000 tires are lower profile (less sidewall) than the X2000

X-3000 have a different interanal design as well so they should not balloon as much as a x-2000. I would say if your track is smooth but dusty the x-3000. If it is a little more rutted the X-2000 with the taller side wall will help soak up the bumps more. The X-2000 with good traction may feel a little wandery due to the taller profile. I have liked the X-3000 when I have used them. Give them a try.
