    How do you dry out your tires??

    I noticed after going puddle hopping with my revo that the foams inside of the tires like to hold water for EVER. What do you all do to dry out the foams inside of your tires?

    The reason I ask is it makes my wheels horribly out of balance and at high speed my revo starts to get some pretty dangerous wobble going on.

    I've seen soldering irons used to make holes 180 apart in the tread to allow the water to sling out.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Putting holes in the tires scares me. I dont want them to shred apart because I made a weak spot in them.
