    wich tire?

    I am going to get new tires from proline but can't decide weather to get the new slingshots on desperadoes or trenchers on desperadoes'. i do a lot of snow driving but am never in sand and a lot of dirt bashing. right now i have the stock summit wheel and tires but want something else. i was thinking slingshots for the winter but i wouldn't use them for the rest of the year. and the trenchers i could use all year round but i don't know how good they would be in snow.

    Something like the slings is in my eyes the only Chance to use this car in snow.

    I use similar tires as you can See in my build Threads.
    Its awesome on hard snow to make Speed Runs and Drift Controlled through corners ;-)

    It doesn't matter which tire you choose, whether it be the Sling shot or Trenchers... they are both going to have more grip than stock.

    I would choose the Trenchers though.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I just got the trenchers and they are super awesome.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    I think there is a big difference between Trenshers and those Wheels:



    They work like shovels. I wish i had make a vid of them last year. =D

    I would buy trenchers and make chains for the summit tires for the snow

    i already have tire chains for the summit tires but they don't do much to them.
