    Nice pics, buddy. I think Tower has a few Jacos on stock. Are you looking for the 1/10 scale ones, or smaller?

    I have some 1/10 Jaco foams that I've been looking to pass off. I barely used them, but they're awesome for speed runs. How much would shipping be from TX to NL?

    @peter and Cobra

    did some research already on foams and been reading not much good things about Jaco Foams

    i when you type in google foam tires e revo vxl you even get hits from this site about Jaco foams
    also a lot of you tube vids with Jaco foams on mervs and all complain about a wobble in the foams

    dont know if you all here follow Draven on you tube with his fast Rustler but also he used Jaco a while
    and also complain about wobble and not able to controll

    did more research then and came up many times with the Banana racing foams and did read many good
    stuff about the Fasttrax foams from UK
    i did see LiLrevo with that red and black merv use them too the fasttrax foams.

    i think Banana who makes them hisself are the best choise but not much an option for me
    because i have to send him rims ,he foams them and have to send them back
    which will make the foams $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ with the shipping 2 times.
    also the custom tax will be a risk with this.

    other option is the Fasttrax from UK which will be 34 euro for 4 foams with shipping incl



    also read that they offer an option to ship it in 2 packs if you want to avoid custom stuff

    and most important

    I like the looks of this rims and foams

    I am using the Jacos on my Bandit for quite a while and never had any wobble issues. I assume that the ones that had, probably had play somewhere else which caused the wheels to wobble.

    If the fasttrax are smaller, I would try those. They are probably also a bit cheaper than the Jacos.
    You can try my Jacos to see if you like them.

    yes the fasttrax are smaller as the Jaco ones

    BTW did run the BB yesterday (easy) and this afternoon (hard)

    whooooo i like it and full throttle is so insane adn i like the 4600kv BB so so much
    but i have a little trouble to keep it in a straight line now at almost full throttle

    i think its time now to do perfect toe and camber and get some better stuff for the steering stuFF

    also did monitor the temps today with my temp gun atter a 3s dual pack the esc got 48 c and the engine 57 c

    run it with the 31t45T
    gonna try a larger pinion next week ! to see what happens

    Mossie, you could buy the wheels from amainhobbies.com in the US, have them shipped to gone banana, then he could ship them to you. Shipping from amainhobbies to gone banana is as cheap as like $4 US.

    back from a one hour drive session

    great weather here so decided to take a spin and its was fun

    crashed and slided on the roof about 10 mtrs / 30 feet at almost full speed

    i wrecked my body with that and there is a spot on the roof of the body were you look inside
    that asphalt is like sandpaper and grinded throught the roof of my stock body

    will post a pic tonight

    Sorry to hear about the roof landing. I did the same with my Bandit today. Not good. I'm going to take my 1/16 cars to Spike City today. Batteries are charging right now

    you do get to Spijkenissa a lot this few weeks latly Peter

    if you get there over the Bridge from Hoogvliet to Spijkenisse (the red one) then you take a look at the right where the park is called (ruigeplaatbos)
    you see a road which is closed now and has become a cyclepad which used to be open for traffic many years
    if you drive to the end of that road there is a insane long asphalt road , back in the old days when i was a kid its was called Hobby eiland and Animo football field have been there a long time.

    thats all changed now and there is a recreation place now called de Heerlijheid and a big recreaton centrum for party and other nice things m which is closed because of drugs , fighting an violence by the younger generation and they closed it and made a dead end of that road.


    that is the place were i always drive the merv because there is no traffic or other things that bothers me when i drive
    they even closed it up at the end of the hill for cycles now.


    back at spijkenisse , the only place that i can think of is Hartog kanaal where you can drive RC , you know when my health gets better i will go with you sometimes to drive our RC (sounds like fun to me master) and looking foward to that 4 real



    the place you live is not so far from me Charlois , Hoogvliet

    the only f thing for me now is that i have that F-ing accident in 2011 and still can not walk well and stand for one our and then my knee begin to feel f-ed up! and will give up on me
    i got revelidation for that and the last 1 and a hal years has beenm very ruff for me from working to 6 am till 8 pm and always going to carshows in Europe every weekend till sitting at home now and not working and sufering from pain every day.

    so from insane active guy to an old ...... of 42 years

    Yeah, the noise is bad. Grinding lexan and aluminum. Yikes.
    I was at the other side of the road you mentioned, the Veerweg. Sadly is was for the last time there today. I went there with my Merv and Mustang and took 6 full Lipos which are quite empy now. Sadly broke my Blade MSR x after my MSR stopped working earlier today. Not the best day for my RC stuff! Lots of stuff to order tomorrow.

    If I get what I expect today, the mail man will have his hands full. Pity you have to wait so long for the parts.
    And I know guys that are way worse with R/C stuff than me. Lol. I "only" have 5 cars (1 in pieces) and 2 heli's (1 in pieces now too). The offer to try my foams still stands.

    I can reach any Dutch LHS in a 2 hour drive That is a pro of living in a 100 x 150 mile sized country. Small disadvantage is that there are 17 million people living on that post stamp on the world map and in the part where Mossie and I live has average 2500 people per square mile.

    Thanks I actually like the copper looking rim but I can't seem to even find that to order on their site. So the 2140 would fit my speed hawgs?

    if you dont remove the chrome and glue it on there , it will come lose because the chrome is a layer

    so i scratched it off untill i did see the white plastic off the rim and then did the glue job

    did that by advise from the guys here on the board and work SUPERB

    BTW 2140 will work for the hawgs perfect

    I can't wait for you to get them also. I've installed mine and had some issues with the steel drive shafts and steel drive cups not going in all the way because it was my error in having the pivot balls to far out.
