    Wheels and tires

    Hey everyone, I have a Blue Ford GT that's been upgraded a little bit.

    Motor and ESC: 6900Kv Castle Sidewinder 3/ESC combo
    Battery: 5000MaH 3s setup
    Wheels: Stock wheels with response tires

    The car is primarily used on asphalt, and since going to the 3s battery the car has no traction at all. I'm needing a recommendation on a wheel/tire combo or at least a set of rubber tires that will fit the stock 26/30mm wheels.

    I am also open to aftermarket wheels. As long as they are the same setup as stock or if you know of any hub extensions that will fit the 4tec 2.0 then a 26/26mm combo is fine. I have a set of aftermarket wheels for the car but running a 26mm wheel on the rear just looks goofy to me.

    26mm foam front
    30mm foam rear
    Get foams from contact
    These will give much more grip

    Depends on use speed runs would most likely last 2-8 runs depending on distance and how rough to asfalt is (how smooth is it-very used or freshly laid)

    so i ordered a set of the 26mm/30mm rims/wheel combo and the hex (on the wheel was to big) does contact sell just the foam tires separately?

    It is hard to see but generally the tire is made of several doughnuts laminated together and smoothed to appear as one.
    The gluing process is not easy from what I hear. At the low cost of 1/10 foams it will be easier to just buy them.
