Tyres and body
I've been using my Traxxas solid for the last couple of weeks and the amount of flips and crashes have left some scrapes on the body,it looks like its been hanging at the back of a car and being dragged through sandpaper in some places. Looks cool! At the rear corners l've noticed breakages that aren't as funny though. I've got two cracks that are getting longer on every crash and l'm wondering if you guys have a trick other that my trick,tape,to bond the body and stop it breaking any further. Any glues for example that will kinda melt/bond the body material together?
One more thing,l've gone through my tyres like nothing,any ideas on what/where to get rally type tyres that will fit the mini slash and fill the wheel arch gap like the stock tyres so? Wouldnt like to have smaller diameter wheel/tyre combo on the car. Cheers guys!
ShoGOO!! and Go to Thetoyz and hopefully they can help you find some tires.. and it also depends on the terrain you going to drive on me its a mix of both. Hope that helps
Mostly roads and concrete
What about road rages! maybe on hpi offsets!
I appreciate the feedback but...what does offset mean? Road rages? Forgive me,but i'm a newbie!

Road Rages are truck tyres with a tread pattern suitable for street.
They fit the Mini Revo, but i'm afraid not on the Mini Slash.
I dont own a Slash, but have read the Tamiya Rally Block tires were recommended quite a lot.
Maybe other Slash owners can chime in?
Offset means the tire is not the same LxWxH it may be alittle wider then normal rims that what i think it mean it gives you alittle more stabilty! and it's alright were all newbies
offset refers to the position of the hub relative to the wheels centerline. in other words, if the wheel sticks out further than stock, it will have a low offset (the hex is close to the inside of the wheel). this pushes the wheels out for a wider stance. if you look at the stock wheels, the hex is closer to the outside of the wheel. that is said to have a high offset, and it brings the wheels closer to the body for a narrow stance.
K guys,thanks. I've learned something today. Important for when u dont want to have the tyres overlapping and touching the body. To the wheel tyre combo,any more suggestions? The Tamiya rally block tyres look interesting but with what wheel can i combine them for a straight onto the mini slash? Cheers!
