    Question Belted tires for the maxx?

    I'm looking for some belted tires, the only ones I can find are the 6" proline wheels that go on the e revo 2.0
    I currently have redcat kaiju tires and love the width and size over stock! ( 3.15 x 5.90 )
    Is there any belted tires out there around that size? Or even stock tire size ?

    You can "belt" tires on your own with some Kevlar strings and tape. I haven't done it but I have read about it.

    I use a single wrap of 550lb kevlar cord and use a long 4 wrap single knot. I glue the entire knot and put a dot of glue every inch or so to glue the cord to the tire. Then if it breaks, it still does it's job for that bash session and isn't a total pain to remove. The first ones I did with the 70-100lb stuff I glued the entire thing. That was a pain to replace. The heavier cord holds up way longer. I have some I ran for over a year without having to redo it.

    I've done traxxas t-maxx 3.3 tires, talon ext's, trencher 3.8's, trencher 2.8's, tamiya MT4 tires and arrma backflip MT's. Even though the line isn't straight on the backflips, they hardly balloon at all even with 50mph+ gearing when in the air.

    My latest ones were backflips I put on my e-revo 2.0:


    This is a usb cord with the example of the knot I use. I glue the entire knot:


    The cord I use (550lb and core in the drop down):

    You can see how little they balloon here on my outcast at 3:27 which is geared for 50-55mph at the time:

    When I offroad raced R/C's You might want to try this. Worked for me and many other R/C racers, Buggy Truggy and Monster Truck classes. In fact I was charging $40.00 a set to do them and had more business than I wanted....

    The one time I tried tape, the tape let go of the stupid tire then got all bunched up inside. Could be because I run in wet grass quite a bit and in the winter. So water is always something I have to take into account.
