    RE: down time

    A TRUGGY!!! I think there was a thread not that long ago about this, it looks pretty good. i would keep it like that, i wonder how it runs! Might need to try that out too.

    RE: down time

    well i ran my buggy with the volcano tires on it.wasent very pretty.it melted the clutch shoes inside the clutch housing withen 5 minutes.didnt have any take off but had top end speed.it did bounce a great deal lol.maybe if i get the 2speed transmission for the buggy that will make it up.also maybe not enough engine to really turn the tires i dont know.its a .15 engine.the hubs and all did great,no problem there.

    RE: down time

    What would happen if you put the stx tires on back and keep the xp tires on front? It'd look cool i think. But would it work?

    RE: down time

    Shawn...different tires on front and back will wreak havoc on your trans and differentials...

    Chopper...I don't doubt you melted the clutch with the bigger tires on...I had a similar prob on my 1/8 Hurricane...clutch still works just wore the shoes down (3 shoe clutches in the 1/8's)...we need to gear these down if we are going to truggy them and get heavier duty clutch shoes.
