Are those dishes made by PROLINE ? What about titanium wheels (anybody own any) ?

Thanks all,
I ended up ordering 40 series WABASH PROLINE w/ crimefighters, also ordered a pair of PROLINE VELOCITY race dishes to try.

dont know they had titanium rims. but titanium is actually very heavy. and overkill in this situation.

plastic is really the lightest strongest material. but it flexes alot, where flex isnt acceptable next notch is CF, than aluminum. titanium is pretty well unbreakable, but itll add weight.

those look like maxx size tires. which would look a little silly on a MGT. though I guess its possible, Id assume the rim wouldnt fit though, hex looks like a 14mm standard for maxx tires.

The PROLINE crimefighters with PROLINE wabash measure 5.8" tall should be plenty big enough for the mgt,or warhead, I may need to change the gear ratio on the mgt for best results.

nah, I meant the hot bodies stadium truck tires.

gear ratio should be fine for racing, it'll give you more acceleration, typicly much more important than a few MPH on the top end.
