    They feel decent. The only thing i dont like about them is the wrapping doesnt cover them completely. The cells are exposed at the bottom. No big deal tho.

    Welp 3s with 45/33 gearing is useless lol. You gotta go soo easy on the throttle you run out of road before you can get up to top speed. Itll wheelie at pretty much any speed. Even like half throttle if you hit a rock and the front comes up at all the whole front wants to pop all the way up. Put on 50/33 gearing now and its better but i need a smoother road to test it out on lol.

    I can only imagine. I run 45/35 on 2s every once in a while and its ludicrous, lol

    ^^ Using a smaller spur will decrease torque, which decreases the likelihood of wheelying. The smaller spur increases top speed.

    I understand that. I just wanted to get 3s to see how fast i get it to go. I dont wanna gear is so it feels the same as 2s. The 3s will probably get sold or stay at storage V and ill just use 3s once in a wile lol.

    Backflips are hard on the diffs. Are they shimmed? Shouldn't leave it charging unattended! Might need a charging bag too

    Well the mesh wheels look soo good that it wouldnt bother me having 2 sets. Im still trying to decide if i want foam tires or not. I never used foam tires before and i wannna try them out. But i dont know if they would be worth it or not.

    The whole no ballooning & having better control is very appealing.

    The $50 is well worth it. They've lasted me several months so far.

    Thats not bad, I did use nitro shoes on my merv for while...foams are AMAZING!! They hooked up like crazy, they were just so small so top end wasnt that great.

    Gone banana finally replied. I just ordered a set of monster ss wheels that will be on their way to him in a few days. Should have some custom foams in about a week and a half - two.

    When I run my SS after the bushings and large center washer I didn't have enough axle left to reach the nylon in the lock nut. Ended up with 4mm barrel nuts works great

    All i used with my HPI mesh wheels was the smallest adapter. I didnt use the metal washer on the outside.

    If you have any of those plastic bushings like in the rockers they fit right in the middle of the rims. Helps keep it centered

    Thats what the smallest adapter that comes with them does.

    A good charging bag is around 20 bucks. Its really a lipo bag nimh are usually safer. Basically when you shim a diff you are moving the ring gear closer to the pinion by placing a thin shim behind the ring gear. There usually is a little play there
