Need tires and wheel advice

I have been reading a lot about tires and wheel and that it’s not recommended to to go to heavy for a combo of tires and wheels as it puts to much stress on the electronics and driveline

Original tires and wheel is 374 grams So what do people recommend for tires and wheels beside the stock ones ?

I have been thinking about
https://pitbullrc.com/products/pb9009zdk As they are about 284grams

And for wheels https://store.rc4wd.com/RC4WD-Dick-C…ls_p_4237.html as they are 274grams

For a total of 578 grams for wheel and tires that’s 204grams more than stock

Is that sacrilegious? 😯

His passion for winning has awarded him UTV Driver of the Year, TORC Series Rookie of the Year, and even Pro2 Rookie of the Year.

Team Associated’s new 2WD ProSC10 is a Ready-To-Run RC replica of the truck driven by RJ Anderson in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. The ProSC10 features a rear motor short-course chassis that utilizes many of the same parts from the widely successful RC10SC5M platform. Adjustable aluminum big bore coil-over shocks, a sealed-gear differential, and heavy-duty CVA driveshafts are all features that come standard on the ProSC10. A powerful water-resistant Reedy electronic speed controller and 3300Kv electric motor power the ProSC10 for high-speed fun. To handle the power, the ProSC10 comes equipped with realistic wheels and tires specifically made to handle any off-road condition.

A 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system featuring a DVC (Dynamic Vehicle Control) receiver also comes standard in the ProSC10. Protected by the water-resistant enclosed receiver box, the DVC system improves stability in all terrain conditions by automatically counter-steering when the vehicle starts to slide. With a metal-gear high-torque Reedy servo rounding out the electronics package, the ProSC10 is nothing short of a success in RC off-road racing.

Tessmann tops Buggy Quali at DNC

Friday Photo Gallery

Ty Tessmann may be the top billing after qualifying at this year’s DNC, however Portugal’s likeable little Joao Figueiredo was the filling in the Ty Sandwich having memorably TQ’d Q2, a feat that will surely rank as one of the Kyosho driver’s career-best so far. Backing up the Euro’s onslaught on qualifying was fellow ‘Euro’ driver and new XRAY signing Marco Baruffolo followed by David Ronnefalk, the Swede on a TQ run in Q3 before ‘stumbling’ over a backmarker which broke his car. Whilst Thursday belonged to Ryan Maifield, having topped E-Buggy and Truck, the Mugen runner will start 5th for Sunday’s A Main. The difficult track really testing drivers’ skill, car setup ability, and we suspect durability…
