Kyosho Mini-Z – Hot New Lips

So, my All Wheel Drive car continues to have issues keeping its shoes(tires) on while on the track, and they happen not to fancy being tapes or glued on. I would just go ahead and get different compound tires, but these Atomic part-silicone ones have the best clearance shape and just enough slide to be perfect for this setup and keep it from flipping over too much. An idea hit me while looking at the wheels- they all have a default back end lip to match with tires’ cutout and stay on the wheel, so why not add a little front lip to help tires stay on and possibly resist being scrubbed against walls? Furthermore, these lips may create a slip point early enough for the car not to flip over completely if it is starting to.
Stay tuned for post-trial results.
