    New Shoes

    Got some new shoes for my Rally. I'm quite pleased with the look and feel of these Banditos. I was nicely surprised that they are a bit taller than stock which I am happy about! And talk about sticky! WOW!!

    I even got in trouble with my wife due to the speedy shipping!!

    Before:


    After:










    I didn't get a chance to run them yet but hopefully tomorrow.

    I have Banditos coming in the 1/8 low profile size. I'll probably mount them white letters in, and use them as a taped utility bashing tire, for all the meat they have on them.

    These 2650's on 4s seem to really burn through tires in general.

    Thanks, ViperZ! I think the size and overall appearance is super with the Rally body. I, too, am in love with the white lettering. Now that I see it this way, my brain is thinking along the lines of a street truck / NASCAR Truck Series, too...

    That's the beauty of the Slash / Rally platform. A tire / body change and it's a new toy all over again!!

    El Sob, it was your thread that put me over the brink to go this way. I've read repeated success with these. The stockers have lasted relatively well, but everyone wants to get their moneys worth (and look great doing so!!).

    Simon, they are premounted Duratrax DTXC3702. I have no idea on the rims, the vendor had several choices available and these looked best to my eye. You can find them here. As I said in my original post, this shipping was so darn quick, I got in trouble!

    It rained for a good part of the day here in South Florida and I wasn't in the mood for wet weather post-run maintenance, so my patience will continue to be tested!

    So true on both accounts! A Nascar truck done up with the meaty Banditos would look very cool!

    I just got a new set of Badlands and tested them out for the first-time yesterday! I cannot believe how much I like them better than the StreetFighters!

    Ooooooh I like those Banditos. The white lettering makes them even better looking. Not sure how long that would last for me, as the curb tends to jump out at me.

    My banditos are scheduled to arrive today. They are going on Jconcept Tense wheels. Looking at all these pics of these tires has me hyped!! Sick looking tire with nothing but good performance reviews. I cannot wait to get them mounted and see what they are all about.

    Curbs have no manners at all...and they're always in the wrong place!

    I'm not sure the letting will last long, as they are just printed on. I clean my cars after every sessions, as such will probaly clean them off if they don't get scrubbed off
