Understood, thank you.

At this point I'm thinking of going XO-1 but I'm not sure on which wheels. I really like my aluminum ones but I'm not sure I want un-glue the rest of my tires and reuse them.

Nice looking truck!

I ended up getting HPI 17mm Hex which use the same size pin I already had (2.5 X 12) and a set of Sweep belted tires already mounted on black wheels. Not as nice looking as the aluminum ones but they feel really solid. I doubt the would balloon at all.

Given the smaller radius, the new theoretical speed is now 71 MPH. Let's see how hot the Schulze gets before I hit 50mph

Here is another option if you go with a 17mm hex. Monster truck/ Truggy belted slicks.

That page didn't come up for me.
Can you repost it, I'm curious about the 17mm belted slicks.

Thanks,

^^thanks nastety

Those monster slicks are perfect for monster speed runs. I sent ipanema an e-mail, just double checking that the Monster Slicks are indeed belted. If they are I am getting a set!

They look cool but at 139mm they are just about the size of the stock emaxx tire which would be way too high for the gearing I'm stuck with.

I may get a pair for my other Gmaxx though. Let's see what they say about being belted or not.

They are belted. All of the ipanema tires are belted.

If they Monster slics are to big look at the buggy slicks. They also make buggy size belted street tires, not slicks.

Yes, I saw those as well but I have to say, just got back from trying out the Sweep Slick 55 and I had a blast. No ESC overheating, a good degree of drifting until they warmed up a bit, much easier to drive.

Meanwhile I lost a wheel because the nuts are not right and the nylon part does not reach so they come loose easily. I'm waiting for the HPI nuts and hopefully they'll work better otherwise I'll need different CVDs.

I took an on board video which I'm hoping to find the time to edit.

You can spin those nuts and put the nylon part on first. If it's a flanged nut just use a washer for the flange. Also, loctite is your friend

Not a bad idea at all but it turns out that the flanged nuts I was using were just too big. I switched to the same M5 I had before and put a little washer instead. Now I have no problem...well not that problem anyway...

Must find a large parking lot with no cars...
