Please Answer Quickly!

Im going to order new tires for my Z, I know that no matter what traction on linolium or hardwood floors will be pretty bad, but what is the best tire for running on these conditions?

Im going to order a Ball Dif, and rear shock set, ( the 3 dollar powerline one?) is there something else i should get?

Thanks in advance

or 3 bucks i think your talkin bout just the springs... make sure u get the whole shock. get an CF-O-Plate...

The best grip will be with some wide/flat foams but if u wanna stick with rubber try 18-25* in the rear and 25-30* in the front!

try this damper http://mini-zracer.com/shop/product.php?pid=418
o-plate http://mini-zracer.com/shop/product.php?pid=403
this diff http://mini-zracer.com/shop/product.php?pid=422
these are good http://mini-zracer.com/shop/product.php?pid=359

hope this helped!.. u dont haft to go with these..there are plenty of options out there!

Actually, that's not a mistake, it really is just $3 for the entire rear shock and springs!!

Wink quick answer

I have found that ROUND tires general grip better. They are easier to mount on round rims as well.

P.S. I'll guarantee that I typed this quicker than anyone else, as you requested. Do I win anything?


P.S.S. Just hackin' on ya!

I find that, as well as clean, flat (square edged) tyres, a well cleaned, dust free floor, is the only way to run on linoleum. I find that 15's will just get covered on whatever dust is lying about, 30's seems to work best...

Flat tyres run good on hard surface
other tyres good on carpet
