    What tires to get next?



    Two weeks was all the anaconda could take.
    So what tires are better? And the same size as the stock anacondas

    Maybe you should rotate the tires before one blows...

    Maybe if they weren't directional tires I would have.

    Oh, I meant put the front left tire on to the rear left tire, and the front right tire to the rear right tire, etc.

    So, are you looking for on road tires, or both on road and off road?

    They are both some what the same size when the rims have tires on them. 2.2's have more sidewall area, but less rim area. 2.8's have less sidewall area, but more rim area. Here's a link that might help. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10...m.htm#10826903

    It's more than side wall. 2.2 tire is going to run a higher rpm because the tire is smaller in diameter. With the 2.2 and the 2.8 tire next to each other the 2.2 is about 1/8 t0o 1/4 smaller than the 2.8 tire. I have both and like the 2.8 much better. handling and performance is lost with the 2.2.

    Yea, what he said. The 2.8 Road Rage's are the closest in size to the anacondas.

    Hold up pretty well but really depends on your driving, if you spin the tires needlessly then they won't last long... They hook up well for speed runs though... I am about to do the 17 mm conversion so that I could use buggy wheels... Also, you can look into some jaco foams as well...

    I have the street fighters and road rage's. The rr's are better for cornering and speed runs and the sf's added with a slightly larger spur makes the Jato quite the wheelie machine.

    I have JACO foams. As long as your running on a fairly warm/hot surface they're great. Cold/wet=forget about ANY traction. I also have ancacondas, which are horrible and don't last. Also have streetfighters, which are great for any street running. Keep in mind they are bigger tires and will require spur gear changing.

    Are the Pro-Line Street Fighter tires a direct fit to the Jato? No other modification needed for the Jato for work well? I'm thinking of getting those, or what you guys think? Are the Road Rages better? Why?

    your HS should have some CA debonder, or use the boiling method. Someone on the forum said they used a syringe and acetone (nail polish remover) and used the needle to get in there. Sounded good.

    Also, I have the road rage tires on my RC10T3, and I spin around a lot, no signs of wear.
