Thats true, I never did run it when I ran stock a while back, I guess it's a completely different world.

I've been running the Mazda 6 lately. I'll try the Skoda 2 when it comes out, and propably pick up a Stratus 3.0 as well.

Use a well trimmed back front bumper to properly fit the Stratus 3.0 body on your XXX-S. Or wait for the JRX-S...

One thing I dont get is how we strive in this hobby to make everything lightweight, yet it seems that each one of my bags weighs 100lbs lol.

i was just driving my XXX-S for the first time with some actual RC car radio equipment. And man are on road cars twitchy. Im used to driving 15lb monster trucks with a turning radius of 20ft. But man are these things fast for such a week motor. But anyway are some good tires just for bashing around on ashfault and on occasion carpet. Im gonna go thru the stock ones pretty fast.

Bet I could leave half of it home without any problems. Would just have to spend the time to figure out what stays and what goes.

Im half way through an inventory adjustment on my stuff, ordered some foam so I can cut out space for my electronics in my bag but it got lost by UPS. Once that gets here I can finish this job and have everything I need hopefully in one bag.

Try some Takeoff cs27. They come preglued and are good general use tires. They are actually used as handout tires at a lot of races.
