    Does anyone know of a good snow tire maybe one that comes prestudded. I was thinking of using a paddle tire for sand but doesnt make sense to me.

    Wow, all those wheels look nice....I really like the second ones down, and the green is nice.....did you have to paint them or did they come that color? If you did, what paint is that? Matches the monster green nicely....

    Really liking how crisp and rakish the Fiesta turned out. Nicely-done, Traxxas (and well turned-out All Alum...)

    Those 4 Techs are seriously good-looking scale wheels. Decent on the Rally, even better on the Fiesta...

    +1 on that...I love the fact that it has the nickel finish polished look vs. the ugly chrome from HPI and it also comes pre-glued.

    I love these wheels. I just took it out for a spin and the slicks it comes with Hooks up perfectly. I cant believe how super sticky they are. it snatches the front wheels off the ground and leaves pretty hard on stock battery. i messed up a rear knuckle launching it on concrete...........Still waiting on lipo's

    They're the slicks with the little "wear" dots in em, yea? Oh, and RPM's

    Those wheels make the Fiesta look more like a GT3 racer than a little Gymkhana car. Win.

    Yes I had to shave down the body very slightly but it really didn't change the look. The wheels are HPI Super Star Wheel 57x35mm 2.2 in. And the tires are HPI M Compound Rally Tire 57x35mm 2.2 in. They came out pretty good IMO , but to each their own, wonder what others think about the look. It can actually rally with this setup.

    I like them a LOT. I jus never thought the bigger tires would work. I also wouldnt shave my KB body for them most likely. But as you said to each their own for sure, +1 on them from me. I like them better than the road set. what offsets did u go with on the gold ones?

    Oh yeah the offset on the gold Volks are 6mm and the term HellaFlush is a where the tire n wheel are poking outside of flush with the fenders. And I was hoping to have a little bit of stretch and poke with those wheels tire combo. But yeah I am enjoying the rally except for having a faulty esc that had to be warrantied. But oh well that's my luck. Thanks for the compliments on the tires.
