Default what u running &what u running on?

OK all I have to drive on is lightly dust and debris covered hard pack & shale.

the tire setup I am running is Pro-line Road-Hawg's front & Pro-line Dirt-Hawg's rear on a 2.5 Rustler.

With this set up I'm getting great traction and allmost no tire wear but I still think I might get better traction out of some input from you guys.

now I'm kinda new to Nitro R.C. so I don't have a lot of xp with this but that is why I'm looking for input.

thanks and looking forward to reading your reply's.

At least your off road. My club races buggys,truggies and trucks on our asphalt on road track

So tyre selection is either foam or..... foam tyres, it's just the shores that differ

I have actually seen some dirt oval drivers get foam tyres and cut treads into them

I also have a set of Pro-line Road-Hawg's for the rear as I some times drive on blacktop and concrete.

I have done countless burnout's and donuts on them and they show No more wear than the unpowered free rolling front tires.

They still have the same tread depth as when they where brand new.
