Per TCS rules, tire inserts are illegal in the Euro Truck class only.

I recently broke a Euro Truck wheel, but the tire is still decent. I already bought replacements, but might try to salvage the tire. Does anyone know what type of plastic the Euro Truck wheels are made of?

Nevermind,..I just checked on Tamiya USA and in the description of the #54964 white wheels it states that it is ABS plastic. I would assume the other wheels (black & chrome) are also ABS plastic. (https://www.tamiyausa.com/shop/wheel...ruck-wheels-3/)

You can use a heat gun and get the tire off.

New to this chassis. The front suspension arms were free, but once connected the hubs, the up travel got very limited. Is there a fix or trick? And what ride height should I use?

The binding is caused by the step screws in the steering links. Not much you can do about it but I've seen guys leaving the screws backed out a bit and also flexing the links over the screws to elongate the holes for more slop.

I just looked and even when installed that way thereís no shock tower back there, itís above the clip. The arm itself may contact a partially loose clip and make it actually fly off.

I was looking at the rules and between the general rules and then the Euro Truck section do you think it would be legal to run 5mm bullet connectors on my ESC if I have a rounded hardcase style lipo with 5mm ports?

You can use a Tamiya connector or Deans style connector for your ESC/battery

I put one back together with JB weld and it worked fine.
