    Yes very nice! These same fitment issues crop up on some 1/10 scale cars as well. To be fair, we are running 1/10th scale wheels/tires/suspension bits...just a shortened chassis really. Gives our...

    Any thin CA (cyanoacrylate aka "super glue") should work fine. It needs to be thin to flow around the bead and down into the little crack you create when you pull the tire back a little.

    Your car may be out of corner balance, (aka "tweaked") where two diagonally opposed tires are supporting more of the weight of the car than the other two diagonally opposed tires. (think of a chair...

    Great job on the layout buttoning up those wires! The reverse lights are a nice touch too, hadn't thought of that. I've got almost the exact same lighting kit, minus the underglows and reverse...

    All six sets of mine literally went on just like that, and once the temps equalized, they are very snug...no slippage. I do realize though that there can be differences in tolerance so there could...

    Where did you get alloy (metal I assume?) wheels from? Only thing R2 sells is plastics as far as I know. Yeah I can imagine metal wheels wouldn't shrink as much as plastic from freezing...wonder if...

    Well of course pre-mounted is easier, all the work is done, but it limits your combinations of wheels and tires.

    I bought SIX sets of wheels and tires from R2, tossed all the wheels in the freezer...

    Good deal. They'll send you another one no problem as I understand it, but it's likely just fail again fairly quickly. You might consider upgrading to something more robust like the ******* 390 or...

    Stock servo probably died, mine did that same thing when it died, and they are a common failure point. Try unplugging the steering servo and see if you can turn everything on and make the motor run...

    Well getting tires OFF of rims is a bit trickier, especially when they're glued on like the stock ones are. You're better off just getting new wheels (they're basically $1 each) and putting the new...

    Nice work, what did you end up doing to increase the angle. Mine may be increased some, but I don't have a stock chassis to compare it too like yours. I need a setup board to track steering angle...
