in testing we found that std. barcodes work fine so long as they are full tread but they wont last long . we ran deboots on the sc and it was like velcro to the gound .... buggys will more than likly be running schumauker or deboots on the rear

Where can I find a place to buy a set of the dboots? I need some for both my pro4 sct and my stock buggy.

Also what front should 2wd buggy have?

bruce will have plenty of tires on hand ... most guys use the shumauker step pin up front but my personal opinion ... i thought gold barcodes worked just fine

Then I just will keep using my front gold barcodes then just buy carpet tires once they move and get opened up.

A new indoor track? Carpet? Off-road? This sounds enticing! Might have to get back in to this hobby! :-)

Default Tires

There are a ton of tires that work. The couple of times I have ran down at RC Plus I used Schumacher Yellow mini pin rears and dboots Blockpass A compound fronts. Both have AKA foams. I also have ran the dboots Terabyte compound A rears and fronts on my 4 wheeler. A lot of the guys down there use the Schumacher staggered yellow front low and regular profile on cut front rims as well.

At RC plus I got 19 runs out of a set of Schumacher rears in 2W mod. I heard stock guys were getting many more. Mine currently still have a little tread but are starting to get a little loose.


I am so looking forward to getting a new carpet offroad track! Can't wait!

Looks like I introduced myself in the other thread just in time for it to close. Just my luck.

I'm looking at getting into the hobby after a couple a couple decade hiatus. I'm planning on getting a RC10B5m. I can't wait.

Anyone know if a M11x shipped without a receiver is worth $110?

Thanks,
Don

Thanks for the information. I'm still trying to decide on that or holding out for a 4PLS.
