Mooshu Beef: For grass running try the Tamiya rally block tires (use it without the foam insert). Its an all around rally tires. For racing try the HPI Rally tire S compound. This is what I use for racing.

My next project. I got the body without the stickers. so I may have to improvise the red lining with paint.

Thanks Sir Miles, does the block tires work well on snow and ice too?

Plus, if you have any used tires I'd be glad to take them off your hands... haha

Dont know about the rally block on snow coz we dont have it here in the Philippines. I think the HPI rally tire med compound will do, not sure.

I have a lot of used rally tire I can give you, but sad to say youre a million miles away from where I live.

Oh man... One of my friends just came back from there. She used to live in Cebu.

Is shipping expensive to the US?

I just ran my car with that mod I have pictures of above on sandy/gravel area and it worked like a dream... Even these road radial tires worked awesome!

Only problem is now the car flips when running on tarmac

So will the rally block tires fit on the regular touring rims?

How much thicker are the tires?

My HPI electric rally arrived. It's in worse shape than I expected. One nice thing it came with an electric 2spd. When I come back from vacation, will clean it up and post pics.
