Default No ABS here

I've called and checked, and I have concluded that no one carries 2" Black ABS pipe in Baton Rouge. I don't understand why Home Depot and Lowes would carry the fittings and not the pipe. Very Frustrating[:@] I saw on ebay a few days ago someone selling 26mm ABS tires and charging like $15/set. Does anyone here know of a good (cheap) online source?

Hey bud,
Glad to hear that! Can't wait to see some pics, what chassis are you running under the s2000 shell?

It's a losi xxx-s. 2 battery packs digital charger and spares for $175. I think I got a pretty good deal. It should arrive tomorrow.

Yeah sounds good to me. I like the single sealed belt design of the xxx-s, should make out to be a nice car for you. I've driven the xxx-s rtr II and G+ versions, both were fast and easy to handle on an indoor carpet track w/rubber slicks. [sm=thumbup.gif]

That's the idea but if you just slip the pipes on the wheels, you wont get any where, put a wrap of two of electrical tape on the rim itself, then press the ABS tires on over that. That way they wont fall off every two seconds.
