Default 280 mm to 300mm

Those of you who have changed from 280 to 300 how do you like it have you noticed and big differences?


I changed on my super nitro last week to accomidate a new body and didnt notice a big difference. Just wondering you all's observations.



Thanks for your time

Jeff

Do you run yours on a big track or on a small one?
Or better yet do you just run it with your buds in front of your house. I used to race mine on a small technical track and the shorter wheel base helped a lot.

I would say it is a med track. It is a pavement track. I dont really race in a comp leauge. I just go to have fun. WOndered if I was making a smart move doing it. The rear seems to slide a little more but that could be the anti sway bar color too. I am using the red one in the back and green up front.

What tires are you useing? Also if the rear is coming around I would try No rear sway bar, seems a little too stiff.

I run 280mm. I think the super turns better with the 280 wheel base. Plus the V12 body is awesome.
