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.

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?

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.
