    Check this out.... rally vxl acceleration video using foam tires

    Hi all,

    I performed some acceleration tests with my Traxxas Rally 1/16 VXL the other day, using HPI foam tires. The grip of these tires is unbelievable. The Rally is transformed to a totally different car!!! I had no previous experience with foam tires to be honest.



    Hope you enjoy the slow motion parts and the skid marks on the road surface...!!!

    Nice Video! I'm surprised it didn't wheelie with all that grip. I have a set of foam tires somewhere, if not I'll have to pick one up.

    Did you get a lot of traction roll in the corners?

    Yeah... you have to be gentle with the steering... For sure you have to adjust the steering exponential.
