I'm new to r/c, so perhaps I'm asking stuff that's already been discussed. But I couldn't find the science behind a lot of messages saying to punch holes in tires en drill them in rims.
Why do we need holes in rims and tires?
If tires balloon, the answer is easy, yes we need air inlets and outlets.
But I taped my Big Joe's and they don't balloon any more. So the only airflow through the holes occurs when I hit something were the tire is pushed in. And that happens very fast where the hole in the rim is way too small the let the air out in those situations.
If I close the rim holes and try to push in the tire, I don't get the feeling that the tire will explode or anything.
any thoughts? any experiments? any tries?
e-revo on Big Joe's.
