    Tires

    I recently picked up a cheap jato with all RPM Arms, bumpers, head protector, and also alum shock towers. I have noticed I wear tires out way faster than my T-Maxx. Part is due to me not adjusting camber before I ran it. So what are some good tires for mostly street with some dirt/grass? What do y'all use? Same on all 4 or different on the front and back

    Since the Jato is a stadium truck, I would typically recommend sticking with stadium truck sized tires, but that's just me. The Pro-Line Dirt Hawgs or Dirt Works would work well for an all-terrain tire. So would the HPI Geolandars.

    foams are on-road only, but for onroad, properly treated, last about forever, and get outstanding grip.

    I would be willing to sacrifice off-road, I live in a culdasac. The only reason to go off road would be by accident. What are some decent foams?

    foams are great on street you can rock yourself out of dirt with them on if you get stuck but it is easyer to run over there and pick it up.
