Ya know, a Pro LCS will tell you if it really is faster.

One more thing, look at your front wheels after you run this combo after awhile. Tell my if your wheelhubs are stripping out and the wheel wobbles.

the problem with you guys shopping in Mongkok is that the shops will not give you much discount if you look gwai lo to them or you are not their frequent customers. But anyhow the foam tires here are much less expensive then those you can get in the states or australia??
That's ok even if I don't get the Manticore discount (I know I never will) and pay the HK retail it's still cheaper there than here.
I have someone that'll haggle their ears off. lol
So can I mention your name (real name) and get some out of it. lol.

Foams are 1/2 price.
7.5 Kanai was $250US off.
Nova TX 15 turbo way over $100US off.
American stuff like Novak, I buy here.

Try TRC purples on the rear and some 40 durometer ellegis donuts on the front mounted on TRC wheels. (these will wear even, fast but even. and they dont change traction when they heat up like trc reds do) go back to 28's the car will be faster.

40 ellegies on the front are the trick to the power on push or high speed turn in push problem when using the solid rear and the one way on the mtx 2. Run 1 mm smaller rear tire than the front if your using standard ratio diff gearing. Add more overdrive till the push leaves. However I think you will find 1 mm good.

The car will become a super happy camper. You should not scrub speed because of overdrive, just a little from the solid rear.
It took me a year to find the right tire combo for the mtx. Those work awesome with diffs to.
Tried if I remember right,

Double purple front
Purple rears
Ellegi 45, 40 fronts
Ellegi 35, 40 rears
Best 40 fronts
Best 35 rears
Microsystem medium fronts, rears
Microsystem medium, hard fronts
Zac 40 fronts
Zac 45 fronts
Zac 35, 37 rears wide
Zac 40 rears

Have yet to put on the Yokomos

Question:

You mentioned to get rid of the push go with overdrive but 1mm smaller rear? Won't that give you underdrive? Thanks.
