    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.

    Iv been putting 500 thousand in center diff. Front tire ballooning is reduced a lot.
