    That look's weird,your supposed to put the foam in the tire,lol.
    How fast were you going?
    Did it slip the bead or rip the tire?
    I had a badlands come apart on me once.

    Any day you get to go to the lhs is a good day.
    Got the 2wd's together for one last pic before the track tomorrow.
    We will be running these body's so you know this is the last they will look like this.

    Just the pic you posted yesterday.
    At first I thought it was the same as mine,then I took another look and saw it had a much lower profile.
    Looking to do some speed runs?

    it has cut outs in the rear of the body that you can leave in but im going to take a few out and see if that helps me with the parachute feeling i will let you know how it works out also i think it will help with the cooling getting the heat out from under the truck

    It sure wont hurt. When we race at crazy-eights and oval parachuting is an issue,as its a big fast oval with a nice size jump on the back back stretch.
    It caught my truck once and took it five feet up and into the woods.
    Look at the middle truck of the three,mine left the ground at the jump and went into the woods right where that truck is.

    Nice were you using superglue or tire glue?

    I just used superglue last night but it states right on it that it will weaken if heated.

    No glue with bead locks.
    Just a metal bead and six screws.

    I would cut out the top two then see how it goes.
    The way the body is set up it would look good even with all four cut out,and that would have to make a huge difference.
