As I learn more and more about the TR-SC10E and about racing in general, I've learned the importance of tire selection.
After speaking with some of the more experienced guys at my track, everyone told me that ProLine Hole Shots were the hot ticket. I didn't think it would make much of a difference as I thought the stock TR-SC10E tires were pretty decent. Boy was I wrong!
I installed some Hole Shots on a set of stock TR-SC10E wheels and by the time I had finished the first turn (a long sweeper) I knew everyone was absolutely correct about the ProLines. My truck performed like an entirely new vehicle. It was much more in control, the rear end was more planted and I could cary way more speed through the turns.
If you are a racer, new tires would be my number one recommendation for improving your truck. Talk to the local guys and see what works well at your track then get yourself some ASAP...you won't regret it.
Here's a link to the parts I used:
Here's that stock wheels and tires:
And these are the ProLine Hole Shots mounted to the stock wheels:
Not only do the ProLine's make a dramatic improvement to the truck, I think they look great on the stock wheels too.
By the way, if you found this helpful, please do me a HUGE favor and support me by purchasing your TR-SC10E parts and hop-ups from me and also by using my Amazon links if you make any purchases at Amazon (they'll pay me a small commission)
