    Grip tires

    What would be good tires for not drifting, just running on the roads and parking lots at high speeds? I am looking to get a boss, or a Kyle Busch and get boss mounts and body.

    Actually - how would these tires be?

    And just so I can find my own tires with out asking every time, what specs am I looking for? Width? Diameter? Hex? Offset? Thanks.

    Wow, very cheap! But they are from somewhere else... Darn. That gives me a good guideline though, thanks.

    They are only charging a dollar for shipping too, the only set back is the wait time.

    I didn't even know that. Bad luck. To Europe it's free shipping. I would have mentioned it if I was aware of it earlier.

    Hoist pirelli tires work great on the mini slash. They grab when the stock tires slide. They last forever too. Mine are almost 4 months old and hardly show any wear compared to new ones. My friend also runs them on his rally. We race together on a low grip track and they work great. He could fell the difference from slash tires.

    lipo power!!!!!
    Whatever you are, be a good one.

    Currently I have taken the motor out of my merv and I am setting it up in my mustang. A pulso 6000 kv motor.according to the person's website it is capable of over 75 mph..it is a brutal motor with a hobby wing esc.does any one know much about pulso motors.I have 2 the other is a 1/10 scale and it is hot also.right now it has a 26 gear and a 50 spur and if you punch it it will kick sideways and flip over.I will test it tomorrow with a 27/45 because it was not revving high enough and not fast enough yet.
