The thing is they get worn out really quickly even with electric, so with nitro, they probably would wear own within a run or two.

ABS (black) pipe will last a LONG time, but you won't have the speed or quite the same control as you would with the yokomo tires. ABS is also dirt cheap

dont be scared to over rev, HPI motors are strong and durable they can take it trust me...

if you are gonna use rubber or hard foams:
set up a stiff suspention stiff springs, heavy shock oil, thick sway bars, hard rubber or foam compound tires and your set

for ABS or PVC:
thats all you need
