Nothing duck man, just bloody bashing, you know normal going up and
down the friggin a** gravel. Probably some junkie
broke beer bottles around the area and at high speeds just tore the SH*TE
out of the soft compund.



Lame, really really lame. MnB will try to relax now.....



Superglue is my friend.

I shudder to think what will happen with the .28 Orion that I am getting soon when it hits the shelves.



Twisted TVP?



I think I will stick to my local race track from now on, these things
costs too much just to bash around anywhere.

Superglue should work. Make sure to clean & degrease the edges before gluing.


Ppl who race buggies & stadium trucks often build their own tyres by cutting up existing threads and regluing the slices together in a different combination.

Wow... now that is amazing!


To be honest I have done the same to a stock HPI tyre/rim set as well. I was surprised at how reasonable the price for a replacement was from MRC.

I have realised one thing. Whenever I break anything on my Savage that
sidelines me, I take a deep breath, kick a sturdy cement wall 5 times,
deep breath again and then look at this picture. Atleast I aint in that
situation.







Works everytime to calm me down.

Looks plenty real to me. If it is a photoshop job, kudos to the person
who did it. Scary innit. I thought the pic of the torn tire on my
Savage was skin crawling stuff.

Mark replied, sweet prices too and yes he does sell individual tires.
Something is bugging me to go 40 series tho and get a monster powered
servo. I asked Husky about the 40 series Bowties on dishes, he said its
aight just wears out too quick.



So am a little clueless on what 40 series I want. Don't know much about
them. But a good race tyre that wont wear out too quick. What's the
name of those 40's you wearing duck man? Looks sweet and doesnt look
like it will go bald on hard surfaces.

Mine are Proline Big Joes on weld wheels... i cant recomend the wheels,
but the joes are awesome, and they will take ages and ages to wear
down. Plus they are nice and grippy




What type of rims yoy looking at getting, the proline dish ones?

I think they are called velocity dish or something, as the 40's weigh
more than stock, I wanted to reduce weight on the rims, so dishes looks
like the goods.

you will never wear out the joes and as i said in the PM the joes have
a stiffer wall so less roll. The bowties are a sweet race tyre but mine
lasted less than a month

Sorry to say guys, that pic is a well known fake!


Here are the TWO original photos that were 'photoshopped' together to make the one being passed around as 'genuine'.
