Default losi 22 wheels

Can someone explain the benefit of using the 2wd front wheels? im assuming that you would want a 4wd front tire on there and not a 2wd front tier like i am using now. but why, for a below average racer, would it make any difference on club races? I tried to understand Ty's the post but it went right over

I used 0.05 as well and it was a pretty tight fit.

1.3mm = 0.0512 inch

wear item anyone else notice?

i haven't raced in a few weeks and was looking over my buggy the other day. i've mostly raced on a high bite, very abrasive (almost concrete) sugared track. prior to my last outing i noticed the m2 locknuts that hold on the front inner hingepins were ground down pretty bad (along with the rear hangers). the other day i noticed one of them was completely gone. anybody else see this?

i love it. Finally found a wing that can keep up with the cars ridiculous durability.

I have prob 4 or 5 race days and a few practice days and its still in like new shape besides the scrapes. and most of the time i race i get thrown in the 4wd SC and we all know how they like to drive.

At the time when posted they did not have extra 4wd wheels available. No reason to use them anymore.

The car is pretty tough, the main thing I would pick up would be an extra Spur gear. I have the B5 shock caps, but still haven't needed to use them yet. The stock caps have been working great.
