Well, i've never seen the 32mm fronts before..let alone the 40mm rears, after many hours of research on the internet they are the only ones that sell that combo.....BUT if you don't care to have a wider tire in the rear with a size of 44mm and can go with a 30mm front then i got the place for you....BUT...yes another but, you must order them from hong kong. I just ordered a set of these:
30mm rear tires (its description is for the rears but i use them on the front of my tc3
$8.80 each (for the pair)
44mm rear tire
I spent a total of 25 bucks with shipping.
Heres the site:
You won't find a USA company that sells these xceed foam tires...atleast the wide ones...
Wow that's awesome work.I greatly appreciate that.I was searching for ever too and couldn't find them ANY WHERE!!! Thank you so much.
Would these fit the 4-tec though? The ones you listed.
Yea...these foams are for the 12mm adaptors....they fit on both my rs4 and tc3....so i'd assume these fit on the 4tec.....
I just wish i could find them wheel adaptors again.I mailed the company but they never got back to me.I seen them on thier site now it's like they disappered. Thanks.
I'm gonna do the same thing you did go with the rear descrition in the front and the 44mm in the back.I just hope the back ones do fit.Are the pretty close to the parts an the rear of you cars,like a lot of over hang from the rims? Would you do me a favor and measure the rear tires flush where the hex would be seated like the photo?I have 3/4" any more and these wouldn't fit.Thanks.
I know by the photo it doesn't look like 3/4 but it is i had a hard time holding and taking the pic.
The measurment from the SEAT of the 12mm hex to the tire rim is .898
Looks like you will need to do some mods to have the fit.
Yeah and i really wouldn't know how.I think i'm gonna try these.What are your thoughts?Cause with these the rear tires are 1.87".That's gonna give serious traction.The only thing i'm concerned about is how will it be i wonder with 4 screws holding the rim and the nut holding the adapter.

Which tires are you talking about? the ones that go on the adapter you gave a link for? Would you have a link for these?
What are your goals for your 4tec? Speed runs?
And btw, the width of the ones i have are 46mm....but they say 44mm for some reason..
Yeah speed runs so it doesn't have a tendancy to wanna float in a way.Going so fast it's so easy to loose it as you know.But yeah and just cornering better with out constantly spinning out of control.Set obsticals up and have a race with others,stuff like that.Cause you and i both know the 4-tec was not designed for track.I even saw a video of one on a real circuit probably someone just to see what it would be like.Man that was interesting.Watching Mugan and serpents then seeing a 4-tec it's sad.But i don't see me going over seas to race in competiotion so buying a Serpent or another serious race car is just a waste for parking lots.Here's the tires that go with them adapters,for the front i think i would just go with a regular foam with the nut.
You could always step it up to AE, HPI, or OFNA. Those companies have much higher quality options in both 1/8 and 1/10 touring cars. With one of these you'll be able to turn without spinning out!:) Anything will be better than a Traxxas machine... LOL
Those foam tires are 1.87" in diameter, not width...the ones i order are 2.54" in diameter..putting these on your car will slow it down. i also researched up and down on how to put bigger and wider tires on...i've come to the conclusion that the pan car foams are too small..not to mention they are very pricey.
I'll have to agree with barber...get away from traxxas..in my experiance...you over pay on things with them....i picked up a tc3 roller for 40 bucks..
EDIT: let me correct myself here..
The JACO foams are 61mm in diameter which is 2.4" and the wdith is 49mm...so yea...you were write on the width..sorry...
But as for speed runs i will give you an example of how much speed you could lose:
If i was running 83.2mph with my 2.54" foams, switching to a 2.4" foam i'd be running, 78mph....so you'd lose about 5 mph. just a FYI..
(calculations above are theoritcal.)
Yeah idk,now i have to figure out how to put a rechargable battery in it.It's not set up like my jato with the way the on/off switch is.Any suggestions? Never mind i need part # 3034.
I don't know much about it but i think you can find here what you are looking.http://washington.craigslistb.org
yes you can try hobbytalk.com.There is lot to talk about all this stuff over there including stuff about rc cars,helicopters,jets,carro armato rcand boats.So it will be easier for you to get the stuff of your choice.Best of luck<div></div>
