The truck looks brand spanking new still(no nicks on the arms is a dead givaway) so my guess is he hasnt ran it allot(or at all) wich is a travesty.

Maybe he drives well and cleans it everyday?

But yeah.. still, the 1/8th tires kinda defeat the purpose of a truggy [&:]

Those look like the BANNEd Panther Komodo MT tires on truggy wheels.

Those tires legal at your track? Bet that thing has unreal steering and turning with those tires on there.

Good lookin truck ...

Leave the guy alone. Your truck looks awesome. I've thought of using 1/8 scale tires myself. Not sure what you have on your truck, but this hobby is about experimenting and having fun. Too many people get caught up in the details of this sport and lose sight of having fun. Ignore the bad comments and keep up the good work.

I think the tires a a little goofy but stop hammerin' the guy about them and his body and saying how "he never runs his truck" just because it's not a filthy mess!
