So you get your mini crawler. It performs pretty good and it, but it really has these. These el cheapo wheels and tires plastic. They weigh like five grams and i saw this little thing from ssd, so these are ssd. Bead lock wheels with a brass insert so first they’re bead lock wheels, so they have that super cool alloy look and this five hole design very classic it’s kind of i think it’s going to match a lot of vehicles, Men, more importantly, it has these brass rings. Brass lock rings, so each wheel weighs 24 Gram. 24 grams might not sound a lot but it’s a lot more than you know. You know five to six grams of a normal plastic wheel, so you could really use that that uh that weight to distribute your weight and to lower your weight. So here it is so 26 Gram, and what did this? What it gives it gives you the opportunity to change your tires as well and match your foam to the weight of your vehicle a lot of times these vehicles they just have either small or huge tires, have no foam um. You know they. They they like, like this one, has no foam uh, so it’s it’s a little bit wild, so you’re able to match that rc four wheel drive has a nice selection. These are rock rock locks, tires super nice, a new tire that just came out. I wish you could get it is on this b17 betty.
It looks so good so anyway, you’ll have your selection of tires, but more important. You can redistribute your weight, so this one is a hard body believe it or not so super cool to have heavy wheels to what’s. He doing to you know to put your weight down you wan na you wan na offset your your your body with nice weight on the wheel, so that lowers your center of gravity. There you go. The other thing you could do is it’s quite hard to to reorganize. This thing put the esca here the battery here, because it’s not a lot of space, so really the opportunity for you is on the wheels. So why don’t you put the 25 gram uh wheels. 50 grams on the front, and maybe no brass rings on the rear to give it more front weight. So now you have these options: um and when you’re you’re climbing, like this that’s uh that’s that’s, the the upside that heavy wheels and tires are gon na give you and finally, what you could do is optimize your performance for what you want to do. So if you want to lower your ride, height put some smaller tires. You’Ll notice that these the actual scx24 c10 has smaller wheels than the jeep, and it performs a lot better on on any kind of climbing or side healing situation. But if you want a little more ground clearance, you have a lot of rocks. Often these these have pretty big pumpkins.
You know you don’t, want it to bottom out a lot. Then you get bigger tires so get some bead locks. You know i know they’re expensive, but trust me they’re, not as much as those 10 scale bead locks, which are always 100 bucks uh before tires. You get some tires now you’re talking 160., so here you’re, like i don’t know 50 Dæk, are cheap, so maybe 60 70 and you’re you’re you’re out the door. So there you go ssd i’m, Ikke sikker, if they’re in stock right now, but definitely an option and so we’ll link to the tires. Den uh, the the wheels and the tires selections that we like.
