Default Front Buggy Tires

Hello All,

Was big on nitro truck bashing 10 years back, and getting back into the RC world. Picked up an associated RC10B4.2 buggy from to get started at my local indoor clay track. Been a blast thus far, but need to make some changes.

Was seeking suggestions on some front tires for it. Many local go with the AKA Typo for rear and front, but figured i'd seek outside input.

That's a difficult question to answer for people who have never ran on your track. Locals are the best source of knowledge on this. In buggy plan on buying many different tires! As buggies are way more touchy with tires than most other classes. Thankfully fronts are pretty cheap!

AKA Typo, front & back.

Chain links should last longer, but part of that extra run time may be break-in.

I'm not sure how easy they are to find now, but I love the HB Full Slot tires for my 2wd buggy fronts.

Locally they are all about the Typo from AKA. They sell the HB full slot on amazon which are direct import from Japan.

I think you are correct thecman. I will need to get a few types and play with them.

That sounds more fun.

Well at OCRC, high bite clay track we run proline transistors, jconcepts dirtwebs or spacebars. But if the locals recommend typos then you got your answer

Go to your track on a race night. Wait and see what the top 3 in both 17.5 and mod buggy run. Buy those tires.
