I notice a lot of people complain about the "coolest newest RTR"'s tires. Has any RTR ever came with a really exceptional sticky race tire?!?!?!! lol
It just seem's like a moot point at times. No one is going to pass on a car that they think is cool (seriously, this thing looks COOL) just because the tires aren't pro-line super soft goodness.
I just wish more companies would include at least a useful tread pattern that will work on something other than swept concrete or stretched ozite. Just a generic medium-small square block pattern is all I ask for, for rears at least, thin enough underneath to have some compliance. They're not going to use race-style compounds, due to cost, and that's fine. A useful tread pattern would go a long, long, long way towards preventing a vehicle from requiring
$50 wheel/tire replacement right out of the box.
What I said on this one, though, was:
Useful rears, RTR-spec fronts that look like they come from an entirely different vehicle. Since the fronts are a new mold, at least they could have made a mold that didn't stand out quite as badly. I wonder if they originally intended to put original SC10s on the rear, but somebody finally did the right thing and decided that those useless tires are not only useless, but should never be included on a car because they're useless.
This vehicle that this thread is about, the SC10B, has raceable rear tires, like the higher-spec SC10 trucks. The fronts are poor, but this will help soften the SC10's inherent tail happiness. The tires on this buggy should work just fine. The fronts just look
way out of place.
