A lot of redcats have the tire shakes when new. The foams have to settle in after a little while. As for the scratch.....Billy and Chris are stand up guys.

Yes the foams do sometimes become uneven sometimes you can rub the tire in the middle all the way around a few times this will spread out the foam to fit the wheels more.

You would probably be better off with an aftermarket brand of tires wheels and foams that will fit.

I guess start a topic on what aftermarket brand will fit or ask the dealer that sold you the Avalanche maybe he knows or would be able to find some for you.

Just about any 17mm wheels will fit if you put on some racing tires 17mm with the 1/2inch offset works best.

Or if you really want to go larger you can put 22mm adaptors on the truck and run 22mm wheels thay are realy larger and wider tires. Just some caution you will need a real good and strong servo to keep up with those tires.

my buddy bought the exact same truck and it was the dog bones. the were just slightly bent. check that and be sure to look closely as you are spinning the tire.

A bent dogbone should not make just 1 tire wooble I have bent many of dogbones in this truck it does not let the truck roll smooth and it pinches the diff cups.
