Hello,
I have been experiencing consistent blow outs lately. The original d boots blew out the side walls... 3 in one day. I replaced all 4 with Pro-line pre mounted Badlands. On my 2nd or 3rd run, I lost half of the outer glue seal on one of them. I have noticed the front tires seem to balloon out more than the rears. Considering how every blown tire has been on the front, I am wondering if there is a cure for this, or if anyone can offer a potential solution for getting all 4 to engage equally..Not sure if it's the tires, or the distribution. Any advise?

Thanks,
Ben

Try changing your diff oils. If your front tyres are ballooning, add a thicker oil to the centre diff. It'll help keep more power going to the rear and stop your fronts deforming so dramatically. I use 100k oil in my centre diff.

Look here for a guide.

You could also look at taping your tyres/foams to effectively prevent them distorting so much.

Heavier diff oil in the front, heaviest in the center (100k).

Traxxas tire glue rated to 100+mph. Do follow the instructions, sand surfaces, clean w alcohol, glue and let cure.

Still on 5S and 6S ballooning will happen but not as bad.

Thanks. I will give the Traxxas glue a try when I replace the rubbers and foams on my original blow outs. Hopefully the diff oil cures the problem.... These wheels are getting expensive for no longer than they last.
