  1. Hi,

    I was hoping to get your thoughts on tires. I saw in the bandit/rustler photo thread that you had badlands on the front and trenchers on the rear of your rustler vxl...I am thinking of doing the same set up. Can I ask why you went for the trenchers in the rear over badlands all round? I run mostly on grass but would like as much durability from the rear tires as possible and also enough grip from the front (without going too far and the car gripping and rolling all the time)....does this set up work well for that? Also, how does the stance of the car look in real life? I have not been able to find a good photo which shows how much wider the rear track is compared to the front. Are there any negative effects to running this stance/excessive wear on parts due to the huge trenchers? My concern is that 1) it may make the car lean toward more oversteer, 2) it looks a bit odd have much wider rear tires.

    Any help/feedback you have would be really appreciated.
