Re: Team Losi Muggy Basher Thread..

Depends what you want to do.. For racing I don't know, but for a great all-arounder I'm VERY happy with my Losi Zombie-Maxx on Ofna 1/2 offset dish rims... The dish rims bring the weight of the Zombies down.. Still way lighter than Muggy stock wheels...

Lots of people seem to like the Proline Badlands, so that could be a good option too.. I think some truggy guys even race with Badlands for rough loose tracks etc..

I have Badlands on Proline 1/2 Velocity dish rims(same as the Ofna basically) on my Savage, and they're OK. I needed new foams though, and got Panther greens.. But I really like my Zombies....

You're also gonna need some 17mm hexes I think.. The ones from Mugen are supposedly good - just need a couple shims behnind the hex I think...

The Zombies/ 1/2" offset Prolines are a great tire combo, I liked mine. When I raced they would shine best when the track got dry. I still had good traction while all the truggies with Bowties and CrimeFighters lost all traction.
The best tire I have found so far for the Muggy to race on are the GRP Cubics. I could not believe how well they worked, only problem is they are hard to find these days. They offer a lot better response than the Zombie.
I race on hard pack red clay btw.

My LHS has some.... :lol:

Tower has just the tire, you could mount them on the new Proline LPR wheels. The mounted combo is discontinued on Tower, hope GRP did not discontinue them.

Would never in my life time own another. Just to weak, & found it sure liked being upside down alot, so it had to go, still kinda miss it tho. It was almost as bad of a truggy as my Hellfire was.
