Rubber tire suspension set-ups have a little more roll in them to gain traction on non treated parking lot racing.



Foam tire cars are designed for prepared surfaces wher the traction comes from the additive to the racing surface. They have less roll for a few different reasons. One, you don't want the car flipping over and two, the car is faster through corners with a tighter suspension.

Also If you can give me some tips on on road nitro racing that will be great
Don't fret over it though. That is just one of the many pitfalls of posting on the online boards...Sometimne we just don't give enough info in our initial querry, so people start making their own assumptions about whatever it is that you're asking.

I'm still sticking with my guns from my first post, though. I also find it somewhat weird that you already have on-road experience with electric, but seems like you have no knowledge of on-road nitro. I mean.....I've never, ever raced electric but I still know something about the cars and products. I mean both genres are inthe same magazine.....just funny that all

I can sell you a slightly used one with lots of hopp-ups and an almost new Picco red dot engine and lots of spare parts for 400. this will come with servos and everything except radio, and a bump box. You said you have radio, right!? . PM me and I'll email you some pictures if you want.

Hit me up if fastharry doesn't want to sell his babies

Hi, Just noticed the post about the trades. I am keeping mine, so feel free to take advantage of KYO's deal, which sounds great.

Just curious but how quickly do you guys go through a set of foam tires? Is chunking tires a common problem for the average racer?
