Has anyone tried this with the XO-1 tires?
no need to, XO-1 are belted tires.
humay has left the building, peace.
What he said... Taping is used for unbelted tires to prevent ballooning. Tried it once on my brushless e-revo, personally I'm not a fan of it. Adds too much weight, makes wheels harder to balance and impossible to balance after a few runs when the tape starts to come loose. A moot point for the XO-1 though.
So what do you do with XO-1 tires because I heard they still balloon at speed even though they are belted?
Switch to sponges and be done with it. Used tires will grow less due to less weight but nothing compares to the foams.
The Annihilator....fastest XO-1 on planet Earth.
