Question Whatever happened to...

Whatever happened to these Vantage tires? They look like the center band could possibly be molded into the rubber to help keep the tires from expanding. Or was the band something that was removable? Either way, I think it was a great idea.

IMO, if you want to minimize ballooning, you'd be far better off with 17mm hex adapters and running a set of quality GT8 tires that are belted radials

Default Green Machine

What happen to hand out motors? Trinity's Green Machine anyone? I had a bunch of green stock motors over the years, and one that stood out the most was a No Bull brand. The name alone gave my buggy extra kick. Haha.
