View Full Version : traction!!!

Anyone found any cures for better traction? I run the team orion elite coreless and a 1100mah 7.2v team orion pack and this thing gets no traction, needless to say, at take off. Topend is unbelievable. Even with the Stock Micro RS4 motor, this thing burns with a 7.2 pack. Does traction spray work?

All I can suggest is the softest foams you can find. They may wear pretty quick though.

For my DRR, i put on tamiya F1 foams. The fronts fit right on the front wheels, but the rears are wider than the stock rims. I put them on anyways, and the traction is much better than the DRR foams. I got the Tamiya F1 foams (from those mini 4wd things) a long time ago, so i dunno where to get them now... I'll post up pix later.

Anyone find any wide rims that fit the DRR?
