    Slash 2wd Tire Tread Issue

    I recently just upgraded my rc car tires and after a day of having them my tire tread completely wore down and the tire is completely slicked out. I am driving on an asphalt street mostly with my Slash 2wd VXL any suggestions of wheels that wont wear down fast? or any tips for keeping the treads? Thanks!

    Welcome to the fourms! You can try Pro Line Street fighters, they are meant for street use. Here is a link to them.

    I burnt out the treads on my other wheels in a day, would the treads on the street fighters last longer?

    Depending if you do dounts, or burnouts, try loosening the slipper clutch a little bit, it will help stop the tire wear.

    What about braking? When I brake the wheels usually lock up and just drag, should I adjust brake % to where they don't lock up under breaking? Any gearing suggestions to help with wheel spin upon acceleration?

    Try hitting the brakes slowly, or you could lower the braking sensitivity.

    Or you could just get street wheels that fit your slash.
