    My tire weight list

    Just a list of tires that I've run across with info I wanted to keep. The last column with a y/n indicates if I actually have the tires and was able to weigh them myself. I use a USPS scale which does things in oz, so the grams is a calculated value.

    Thanks for this listing.
    I take this opportunity to ask a question, what is the ideal weight for Erevo wheels? Too heavy you have to damage the parts of the transmission, and too light you have to have more trouble controlling the car for backflips and other tricks in the air ...
    For now the original Traxxas tires are fine for me, but if I want to be more reliable, is it better that I take lighter tires?
    I would like to point out that I am not a fan of big jumps in skate parks but I like having control of the machine ...
    Thank you.

    light tires make the erevo noticeably faster and sharper. when i go from big joes to badlands v1 its like i go 4s to 6s. and i have a very good battery. you have to try yourself, but original 2.0 talons are kind of like in the middle, not too heavy not too light.

    thanks for the list. i dont know if you want to add my big joes from the other thread, but i have 3 passes of gorilla tape on each tire in there also.

    Well, I'm not 100% sure if it's the lack of grip or the additional weight of the ext's vs the trencher 3.8's, but my motor temps went up roughly 15F when I put the ext's on and regeared +2 on the pinion to compensate for the smaller OD. At first I tried +1 on the pinion (19/54) and I wasn't able to pull a flip quite as easily as with trencher 3.8's and 18/54. So I bumped it up to 20. Temps were a bit higher with 19T and more so with 20T.

    I'm going back to the trenchers, but have ordered some 10mm offset HR hubs because I do like the additional width the EXT's add. Makes it more prone to sliding than flipping when I turn. I'm not sure the effect will be as great with the trenchers, but figured I'd try just the same, but it was very tippy.

    The only damage I had with the larger tires is the rod ends, rockers and rocker posts. But that was mostly from having it setup with the rockers in too tall of a hole on the arms.

    I ran the trencher 3.8's on my savage flux hp, outcast 6S, ERBEv2 and big block revo. I recently took them off the outcast to see if my ongoing diff issues subsided with lighter tires. The jury is out yet on that.

    I prefer the trenchers due to the contact area they have lends them to lasting long on pavement (skate parks) yet getting decent grip in the grass, but not so grippy that they are tearing up the drive train. Also, they have a tall sidewall, which adds to cushion the landings quite a bit and helps keep the beads from getting chewed up when bashing at the skate parks.
