    rustler vxl rear tire suggestions?

    my local dealer only had factory replacements in the right size,they dont last long on a vxl. I want more grip on loose dirt,especially with cornering.Im running 7.2 5000 nimh right nowbut im getting a couple lipo's for myself for christmas. I dont want to run on slicks.

    I think something like the proline bowties makes sense there.

    traxxas stampede vxl rims and tires, youll lose a very little bit of torque, but they r wider and ebay em for cheap as poop, they worked good on mine,,, the more ground u cover the more tractin youll get

    if its really loose dirt, almost sand like, then try the proline sand paws or some sort of sand tire.also make sure if u go with a sand tire you go with a firm foam insert.
    I reject your reality, and blow it up with C4.
