If you want an RTR for racing out of the box IMO this would be a good pick! As far as on road you could put a set of street tires on it. You have to wait for it to come out though![:@]

Pro line makes tires for the Mad force. Basically any tire that fits on a Clod buster works with a mad force wheel. For instance, the proline GIANT Trac tires. You can also use duratrax tires. They made a few designs for the Clod as well. If you've done your homework, then you already know that Kyosho themselves have a new tire design, that they were showing on a Twin Force at the RCX. The Mad force is considerably light for the size it is. Roughly 9 1/2 lbs. The trucks motor is strong, and very user friendly. Its very durable, and fun to drive.
