izantm4n very nice ride how does she hook up with the brp tires im having trouble with massive wheel spin,same gears same pipe,im running a full mod 29.5
I havent ran the smaller tires yet but when I ran the large ones there was bog on the bottom end. Are you running onroad or off road?

The hostiles didnt hook up the way I wanted it to, but they last a very long time. The BRP's from what I've seen is a very good choice for racing.

the hostile slicks did not work for me either they just would not hook up even on a well swept and clean track.the best tires that worked for me was the fg slicks and the brp slicks even the grp tires work better than the hostile slicks and i have tried the soft and medium compound.

try the hostile hard compound they hook up alot better than the medium and soft believe it or not.....you will be very surprised after using them do a nice burnout with the hard compound and they tires get super sticky but not as much as brp setup though

Might be, but fits just fine. Forgot to mention that when i opened up my diff one of the bevel gears was blown into bits and both drive pins were broken into 3 pieces....this is with a obr 29.5 LR. I was also running the tr diff case, Dave how often do you have to maintain your diff with the big blocks?
