    Anyone have any suggestions on front tires ballooning so far that they blowing up? This mainly happens when in a wheelie, is there any suggestions on this problem? I have a HPI Trophy Flux Buggy with a 2200kv motor, new BLUR ESC and running 6s lipos.

    Super thick center diff fluid will help a lot but the fronts will always spin faster than the rears due to the design of the car.

    Really, that much horsepower is difficult for the differential to deal with. The only thing you can really do is slow down or run thick fluid in the center.

    an old school trick is when you put your tyres on.. turn them inside out first and wrap with fibre glass tape (the sort the TC racers use to hold their batteries into the car) then turn back to normal, place in foams and glue to rims.

    Diff oils.. i run 5k front ,5k centre ,3k rear.. But i am only using 4 cells.
