Talking Not for OLD GEEZERS!!

V1RRR make good parking lot bashers if you can find a nice smooth clean parking lot to run on. My V1RRR that I modified by putting a OS TZ .18 that I had the sleeve ported and timing advanced on the crank with 40mm wide rear tires was one of the fastest cars I ever owned!! The only problem I had with it was it was a young man car. Young men have those superfast cat like reflexes that we older men in general tend to loose. I think I will try running high speed oval with this car instead of road course or just drag race with it. I had to put the 40mm wide tires on the back because all I was doing was spinning out with stock 30 mm wide tires the 40mm wide tires made it more driveable.

If you are a outlaw and you have stuffed a modified .15, .18 or .21 in your 1/10 scale onroad and need a slightly wider tire than a 30 mm for traction a 40mm tire may solve your traction problem. You can get these tires from RC Market. The brand name for these tires is Xceed GT Wide foam tires style number 101548 . These tires should fit without modfication.

For those people who are interested here is a link to the page on RC Market website that has the Xceed 40mm wide rear tires. http://rcmarket.com.hk/index.php?cPa...sort=2a&page=2 RC Market just refers to the tires as wide rear tires. The 40mm wide rear tires are 13 tires down from the top style number 101549. These tires sell out really fast.

These tires are known for the 220mm conversion, several brands do have them.

How do you like that 18tz. I actually purchased one some time ago to drop in a HPI evo+, but never got around to it and eventually sold it along with the car. From the videos I saw on youtube of guys dropping that 18tz in 1/10 onroad cars, that thing is a freakin beast. (insane torque) And now your going for a .21? Man I hope you got a parachute installed on that sucker.

Evo13 the TZ.18 was modified and in the V1RRR it was balistic!! Right on the edge of being uncontrolable !! I tamed it down by putting the 40mm wide Xceed tires on the rear!! I know I am crazy for trying to put a .21 in her but you got to have something to keep you busy when you retire.

Keep enjoying your retirement. Regarding that .21, when you set it up, be sure you upload a youtube video of that thing running flat out, totally committed! The grin on your face will be priceless

I know this thread is old but who modified your engine?
