If not, these are a must. Much better feel and durability than what comes stock on the tki3.

The stock ones arent that good

Read back in the thread its been asked and answered. If they did it would be updates here and there. Not a totally chassis update. Why change what has been working for years.

Has anyone ever thought about powder coating the aluminum on these buggies? Thats the only think I hate is how it wears. You can build a new kit and put a months of racing on it and the buggy looks half season old. Just a thought not sure even if it could be done or the cost.

I have a question about tire wear.

I noticed that Tebo's car came off the track after the C-netic race with the front tires practically slicked and still some tread left on the rears. I was wondering what was the reason for the front tires wearing faster than the rears?

Thanks in advance!

I would venture to say track conditions. There are some tracks we run on that will simply eat tires. Then the next time we race there tires are fine.

The reason I ask is that with my current setup, I want to get a little more pull out of the front tires. I feel that the rears are overpowering the driveline causing an oversteer condition with the car to over rotate a little more than what I would like.

What changes could I make to get more drive and pull out of the front wheels?

That would be thin oil center diff, and thicker front.
For example if he ran 6 or 7 in the front, 3 or 4 in the middle, and 2 in the rear, that would make his tyres wear a lot quicker in the front than in the rear.

Similarly, for the other question about getting more pull on the front, go thinner on centre diff, that should do the trick.
