Don't forget that traction compound also...for that extra grip...you don't want to overheat your TX tire half way through the mains!!!

I had the same problem. Take a rubber band and wrap it around the middle of the wheel. It creates a small dip in the middle and the rubberband keeps your fingers from slipping.

Problem solved.

I mounted a 1/12th foam donut on my wheel, I use purple, but pins will give you more traction....LOL Greens will work well too, but they won't last as long when racing on a highly abrasive surface........

well you guys might be joking around but I noticed on Ralph Burch's mars ex1 he has an oversized wheel on it. I put a 24mm foam TC wheel on mine and it really feels much better to me.

burch and blackletter at the worlds

Is that a left-handed radio? I didn't know KO made a left-handed radio. If you look at the picture the transmitter wheel has to be controlled with your left hand

Remove the small hex shaped piece in the center of the wheel, there is a screw behind it......

That is a left-handed KO transmitter, but it's not available for sale. KO makes it just for Ralph. The larger grip pads on his transmitter are also special Ralph only items.
