Hey, nice car. I have a Nitro 4Tec with all Airtronics electronics, OS 18TM engine and THS .15 Big Block Pipe. Foam tires are a must. I am running a Nissan Silvia body on it right now. I love that car!

Just picked up mine. I've put 6 spoke chromies with HPI Pirelli Rally tires on it and I'm working on a Subaru Impreza WRC body for it now, I'll post pics when I get some.

I'll definitely let you know how the rally stuff goes. I'm still working on the break in procedures right now. I'm going to charge up some more radio batts and I'll be running the 3rd and later tanks in the packed snow on the roads. So I'll post back how it does when I find that out. If it has issues I'll find a way of getting more ride height out of it and post back with that as well.

Are there foam tire/wheel combo packages available online anywhere?

BTW, if you aren't already, use the shims that came with the car to adjust belt tension. They work. Mine were rediculously loose after todays bash session. So loose, in fact, all I had was rear wheel drive. They were slipping that badly. Added two shims and all is good again.

nitroeddie check out hpiracing.com tons of wheel and tire packages

There is a "official nitro tech" topic on here somewhere i havent been on in awhile and havent been able to mess with my 4 tech, i just got a hold of a hpi rs42 for free that needs a rebuilding but its got a newer os18 in her......when it ran it wouldnt come close to touching my 4tech
