Just because you say "not to nock" before you do doesn't make it any less offensive. That would be like me saying

"I don't mean this in a bad way, but your momma's fat!" LOL


I wanted a nice lookin ride sitting on some big wheels way before they made 24's, so that's what I went with.

HPI super nitro wheels and offroad tires. If you want street tires I would go with the 24's though since they are cheaper and thinner. I used my nTC3 to fly thru the street and thru the gutter and right into my yard. It was awesome. I even cruised slowly thru my rock garden with no hangups. Ran it on my snowshoveled driveway too (still snow left on it).
I don't remember exactly but I believe I had inch and 1/8 or 1/4 ground clearance after I lifted it and put on the big wheels. Was slower on takeoffs though obviously.
