    Lightbulb Hey look what I got in the mail today.


    Then I taped them 2 times each. Wow they look great.




    Tomarrow in the morning before work I'm going to run my slash. I think they'll be good on road. But off road they'll be beasts. Just look at them again, what do you think?

    I also have some other parts coming in the mail this week some time. G.H. caster and steering. I'm getting some gtr shocks too. Hopfully I'll have them by this week end.

    I think the Badlands look amazing and will probably be my next tyre.

    Quick question, I've heard a few people mention it, what do you mean by taping the tyres?

    Depending on what Motor, Gearing and LiPo Cell count you are running, your tires can balloon under heavy acceleration. This reduces tire contact surface, messes with the wheel wells of the body and in extreme cases can cause the tire to shred or tear. Taping the Tires means applying some Tape, IMO only Gorilla Tape, to the inside of the Tire before you mount it on the rim. This helps keep the shape of the Tire under any conditions.

    Check this out. It may help.

    Got these in the mail from A Main. That Mip Thorp 2mm hex is great. I upgraded the motor mount again. From the strc mount to the king headz mount. I also got the king headz bearing adaptor.
