    Possibly wrong part number and wrong rim for the front. I have them on my Jato, but I mounted them on the Jato split spoke rims. What kind of rims did you order with them?

    What is the Proline Part #? There is a definitely a front and rear one. The front on that I found was listed as this. [PRO2728-03]

    Notes from website:

    This is a set of two Pro-Line 30 Series Desperado 2.8" Front Nitro Wheels, and are intended for use with the Traxxas Jato

    NOTE: Requires 5x11x4mm ball bearings to be installed into the bearing pocket on the wheel (NOT INCLUDED)

    I was going to say, there is a mod that allows you to have hexes on the front.

    Just threw on badlands on my rear tires today after using talons and I must say I feel like i'm driving a whole different car. The badlands are amazing compared to the talons.
    I'm still using andacondas in the front tho, how much will it improve my steering/driving/traction/handling if i put badlands on the front aswell?

    Not sure I have ever driven the Jato with the Anaconda's off-road, but considering the size, height and tread pattern difference I am sure you will be will notice a difference immediately.
