Default Best upgrades for manace .21

Hi, I have a menace .21 and wanted to know what would be the best all around setup for street racing ?
1 more thing, can the menace and jato use the same tires ?

I think they are both 2.2, so you should be able to use the same tyres.  Best setup is probably to drop the suspension by removing the spacers because it is a bit too high to handle well being a stadium truck, plus there are no anti-roll bars fitted.  I wouldn't bother with the Venom road tyres from Schumacher; I have a pair and they are rubbish.  Best to try another on-road tyre, or even a wheel & tyre set meant for the Menace GTR.

The jato actually uses the 2.8" tires and wheels, but it uses the standard 12mm hubs. If you want the Jato tires, you'll need the wheels as well, assuming the menace uses 12mm hubs.

I believe the menace uses 14mm, but i'm not positive.

Venom tires are horrible. Get a strong throttle servo, because the braking in the menace is horrible.
