after lots of elbow grease and use of the hex driver , the RC4WD Mickey Thompson Baja Claws 4.19 are mounted up on my SCX10, note to self : ” make sure you align the threads right and put the right rings in the right place”. Note the picture below 😀
I was choosing between the RC 4WD 4.19 Baja Claws and the Proline Super Swampers to replace the stock kit Flat Irons from the SCX10. The replacement tires needed to be better and a similar size than the originals because i don’t want to cut up the body more and also they needed to be in the 4.20″ height to fit into class 1 of Scaler rules.
The claws are according to the internet probably the best all round scale tires. The compound feels super sticky , the only thing i don’t like are the stock foams but i have not tried them outside yet so i might be mistaken. I do like the look of them a lot, the thread looks bad ass, especially the sides .
The Claws are supposedly self cleaning , that i have to see, if its somewhat true that would be cool as the flat irons really clogged up quickly .
Here is how they look mounted up on the Cherokee
i’ve also bent up a new steering link to get a bit more steering out of the stock setup .Also notice the nice shackles 😀
Next step , new bumpers , bending the rock rails up a bit and maybe some flares, but even now its still Class 1 legal because the tires not stick out too much. Also , i kinda wan’t a roof rack.
This concludes my 100th post , onward ho to new victories !
