i like to see wheels and tires that are plastic, resemble brand name aftermarket wheels from enkei and other companies, and are wider. they should have the same offset so that the extra width would protrude outwards. i like to see treaded tires that have sharply cut grooves in it, not the rounded groove edges of the treaded tires from the RS tire upgrade kit. (hope you know what i mean, if not i'll throw up a pic later)

Nylon locknuts are availble for the Mini-Z and are the perfect fit for the X-Mod. Check the sister site, mini-zracer.com

Any 2mm locknut will work. Also check the FAQ section, this has been discussed in depth somwhere in there.

TypeZer0, why plastic tires?

has anyone tried to use a CD as a wheel? we used to use them for that for some project in wood working.

I'm a big fan of the 15 degree GPM sport edge radials for the Mini-Z. They work well on the carpet that I run on. Once it actually gets warm enough to run outside, I'll have to find the preferred setup for asphalt.

IDK if its possible but softer rubber on the outside and harder on the inside. that way the tires wouldnt come off as easily like the totally soft ones do. how about paddle tires?

one word, foams, better foams than the RS ones. or perhaps silicone. and how about a modified ball diff to fix the annoying slip from the washers not locking to the hubs? possible? I have ideas. and how difficult would it be to make alu. outer shafts and universals?

maybe they could replace the rear with aluminum universals too. no more broken cup joints. maybe they could sell them with rubber boots over them?

I attached a crappy mspaint diagram to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
The problem with that design is it will not correct the problem, and instead make it worse. If you reverse it, It will make it a whole lot better.

Something like this I run these wider and higher profile tires for drag. These also have a tread.
