    ripped tire

    I had another tire rip apart the last time we went out to do some bashing. It must have gotten some water in the tire from driving through some puddles and then expanded while doing some high speed runs.

    Or maybe it just had a little rip in it before and I didn't notice it before it came apart. Either way I think I might upgrade to a different tire set up. Any suggestions?

    Look at what Proline has to offer.

    if under warranty call traxxas support for replacement

    repair -clean and dry the foam-super glue the ripped tire- >sometimes works

    I have found the stocks to be the best. Cheap and light. I have the prolines and they are so heavy. JennysRC will get the stock 8s tires in and they are priced fair. Just keep a few spares so when you blow one out you just swap and keep driving.

    I like your front bumper, and Raptor body. I made a similar look for my Emaxx many years ago. I think it's a great look for any truck.

    I stick with the stock 8S tires. They are better than the 6S tires were but you still have to be careful when they balloon. Maybe try the fishing line mod if you really push the stock tires?

    ripped tire

    They are good
    Once they warm up they are nice for grip too so if say get them it you want to still have a off-road set as well
