I've got a DX2.0 now, no complaints yet but I've yet to see how it performs at a long range.

It's on the back-left wheels, you sort of have to twist it on a metal kind of pole.

I've been saying it since they released pictures of it!


Good thing too, the old one would really restrict the power from the new engine.

Yeah that is true it would limit the output on the larger motor.

Its not; the riot has a small block pipe and if you look at the stinger its far too small and would restrict the power more than the standard fusion pipe. The riot is only 1/10 anyway, so its not as big as you think.

Hello i was just wondering has anyone in the UK done the wolf-pack radicals foam conversion to there menace gtr,

i have just got the wheel adaptors through the post from wolf-pack radicals and ordered the 1/8th foams tyres from Ben-racing,

when i got the foam tyres from Ben-racing they have the 4 pin layout not the 3 pin which is on the adaptors,

does anyone have part numbers and web addresses for the foam tyres with the 3 pin layout to buy in the UK

your help would be appreciated as I'm beginning to lose hope and as you can tell by the posting time i have spent many nights looking at the forum and have read all about it but just cant find the right tyres,

thanks in advance,

 i also tried to upload the pictures to show you guys what i mean but for some reason they are only coming out as a small white page with a red cross 

here is a link to the ones i have already got these have the 4 pin layout, part no:MU35FCB

http://www.benracing.co.uk/acatalog/Enneti_8th_Scale_Tyres.h tml

Obvioulsy softer wider tires will give more grip. But for agility thinner tires are better. You can get tire warmers as well and tire additives.
