Hey Spitfire, Are those 24mm tire and rims you are using? Do they work better than the 26mm set, or even a foam tire setup like 26mm front and 30mm rear?

they are 24mm, i don't think they will perform better/worse than 26mm, just what i choose. as far as Foams, yeah they will work a lot better than rubber on treated tracks and the like. i do not run foam but i did try a friends set out and it did handle better.

u dont really need preped tracks for foam,all u need is pebble ,sand and dust free track.
logically(not to understate spitfire's logic),26mm should provide more grip..but i have never run 24mm's on my nitro so i cant really say for sure.

yes u don't "need" a treated track, but i was more or less getting at for bashing in your local parking lot, it wouldn't be ideal for foams

Hey Spitfire, what kind of exhaust manifold is that that you are using? I tried the tc3 rear exhaust manifold but its too short.
