Wow. After so many tries. I am so freakin happy with these tires. They are absolutely perfect. They ballon but I'm learning to massage the throttle a bit. They cut into the grass so hard I find myself almost turning over. On cement - they can do 180s with a flick. I'm very impressed. These were 63 bucks shipped. Ok - pictures from tires at the bottom from right to left. Ordered blue shell, shock shafts & shock bodies. I didn't see any bending in the shocks after taking them off. Figure to replace shock bodies & shaft will get me bouncing again. The Terremotos are also significantly more harder - very sticky and firm. I really like how tall they are from the sides.

The RedCat Terremoto V2MT tires handle full throttle and the rear stays planted - however the front wheels seem to be pulling much harder - which speaks slipper clutch tightening as when brand new and going back to go pro footage - the acceleration allowed wheelies at 35+mph - which tells me torque should lean rearward. significant torque is the nature of this beast and when its acting different - I can tell. Took a few smaller jumps and the rear stays down - these shocks are blown out. I ordered new shafts and shock bodies - which I will install. Never done that before - what rear shock oil should I use?

ok - dropping Oliver off at day camp. Took out the Nero for the kids. Did a wheelie and POP. both front tires exploded. I have now wasted 200$ on proline super swampers and now REDCRAP tires. I guess it's onto Duratrax Six Pack MTs. Another 99$ bucks - I could get a Losi 10MT with this tire money I am endlessly spending.

Buy the belted SRC Terrain Crushers.

Mine are holding up well on my Kraton
An option as I have two already. REDCRAP is sending me two replacements. But that is nice to see - they look pretty nice too. I'm sure that Kraton gets above 65mph with those. Very very nice. My SRC terrain crushers are below

Hey Julian you should put your pics of all your blown tires on the Arrma Damage sticky in General chaos & any wrecks you might of been in.

i got a zippy 6s brick for the Kraton and have hpi Goliath MTs. Going half throttle and never punching it. Tires holding so far so good. I will my friend. Can post a lot of blown tire pics.

I took your advice and bought the terremoto tires, So far, Great choice, But I have a question. I find the mounting area of wheel very thick and wheel nuts do not go on all the way. What did you do to properly fit the wheel nut? I ordered the terremoto hexes. Is this what you did?

I'm baffled. I did nothing at all. I just mounted them. Maybe they are not offset version? Actually I don't think there is. Just pound em on the hex nice and tight and screw in. Pls take the time to Re glue em as they are made for a 4s truck. If your running 4s - no worry but 6s? They WILL blow bro. Running my new HPI Goliaths on 6s like a fool but staying half throttle. These are truly great - even on6s they balloon but don't rip like all of those prolines

I bought the Terremoto wheel hexes. Fit great but had to make a thin bushing between the hex and bearing. These hexes fit the Terremoto wheels much better.

They look great - Hoping your enjoying them - also hoping you re-glued them if your running 6S!!!

Just got a new set of BigRock Wheels & tires

Hey Julian, I'm curious, it's been almost 2 yrs since you posted this - hope you're still following - anyway, how did the redcat terremoto tires hold up for you? What about dboot copperheads? have you tried them? i've got a redcat and an ERBE right now I'm messing with and trying to figure out a tire set - i ended up to recently pick up an e-revo after traxxas sued over the nero design (super sad cause i wanted the nero - thing was built like a tank comparedto the erbe) anwyay, having issues finding tires for the fragile drivetrain that handle well and don't come apart... Not a fan of the SRC tires - but i am running 6s 90c smc batteries so i've got hella punch factor...
