    Yes they do.

    Or you could use Axial beadlocks. Most people want the narrow version, but there almost impossible to find. I have been looking for a set for 2 months now.
    You can run the wide version, but you will need to adjust your steering end points or they will rub the control arms.

    I mounted my Mudslingers to stock Geode wheels and decromed the wheels. I cut the foam in a star pattern. Mounting the foams, tires and glueing them to the wheels was no bid deal. The Mudslingers are directional so mount them the correct way for each wheel. [IMG][/IMG]

    To soften the tire, allowing more flex and grip.like airing down a 1:1 tire for better traction

    Great so far!

    Yeah I have a set of Mudslingers here as well and want a second set of Axial narrow beadlocks to mount them on so I don'.t have to demount tires every time I want to change from crushers ti slingers.

    +1 Help a lot with the traction. I have sent an image of the star pattern. if you want to cut the star, download the image and you can reduce/enlarge the image to fit your foam size and print it off and then use it as template to trace on the foams so you know where to cut them. I have seen on this forum, some guys have no foam in the slingers. I like mine with the star pattern, makes them more versatile for different terrain.
