    Question Rc4wd beadlocks

    I know thereís not a lot of people using these but curious if anyone has used them with G-locs. Looking at them in hand and it seems like thereís not enough of a bead for the tires to be clamped under the beadlocks. El Sob have you tried this combination? Not sure if thereís a difference other than looks but Iím using the race line monster set of beadlocks from rc4wd.

    Appreciate it Squeegie! I thought so too, it’s why I figured it would be a good match. Just doesn’t seem to want to hold that bead very well. I wasn’t sure if there was anything I should be paying attention to or missed or what.

    Squeegie is the man! Yes those tires and rims work famously together! I have had them at 60+ mph and they have done extremely well. I used to be able to get those tires for $10 a pair. They aren't as good as Bandito tires but they are light years ahead of the Street Fighters

    El Sob had a vid of his running in a parking structure... I think.

    Here is a video of mine that shows they can take a beating! Full throttle off the line. Tires stayed on the rums

    Squeegie, here is the video that you were looking for! The G-Loc is a good performing tire. I just wear them bald fast

    Looks great! One of these days I’ll have to finish painting up mine. It’s been sitting in a box for far too long.

    Thanks Squeegie! Same body? Canít wait to see it, I love your builds. This was a backlash before I switched it to on road. Built my wife a drag car out of a slash and needed something to play with hers with.

    They are a slightly different variation of the Duratrax Bandito tires. I have a good feeling about them
