    Yesterday while out bashing I heard the tire hitting the body of some of the faster turns. I didnt think much of it as my battery was getting low. Today I thought I would charge up a battery and see if I could figure out what the deal with the noise was. It seems the foam located inside the tire was spun, making my tire lopsided. There are actually 2 of them this way. I've only ran the kraton 4 times now, for a total of 8 batteries worth. Is this the norm, or the foam was rotted out due to the Kraton being a V1? I got the Kraton used, but it was virtually brand new and upgraded. The chassis didnt have a scratch on the bottom, not a spec of dirt, looked like it was just pulled from the box, besides the savax servo, castle X esc and 1515 motor. She fly's on 4S can only imagine what a 6S will do! Any thoughts on the tires, if I need to order I wanna do it fast so I can bash this weekend LOL.

    Further investiogation...The 2 that balloned the most are fricking water logged bad. Like I squeezed the tire and water came out the hole, like a russian racehorse! also found a tear in one of my tires. So I squeezed out what I could. One tire feels like it has no foam in 2 places, exactly opposite from eachother.

    Thanks for the info. the holes on the outside make sense, as they would throw the water out instead of it staying inside.
