Default CI foams

I'm gathering up stuff for this build and looking into the Crawler Innovation foams. I was looking in the original SCX10 forums but the specs on the gen2 tires are wider by 6mm.

What are you'll thinking of running foam wise? I'm looking at the LIL' NOVA DUAL STAGE 4.75 COMP CUT INNER / MEDIUM OUTER.

I will be going with the Cralwer Innovations Deuce's Wild Single Stage.

When I first saw the single stage foams i thought they would be too stiff for a scaler. After putting them on my Yeti and loving them, I installed a set on my SCX10 JK. They have become my favorite foams.

For years I ran the CI two stage foams. They are great for crawling. But for high speed, trail riding and the fact that they don't suck up water, the single stage get my vote.

I didn't even have the single stage on my radar. Makes sense with the water and if you want to rip it a little bit.

Thanks for the input

Maybe a dumb question but are the stock foams real bad?

I received my SCX10 II friday and the stock foams actually seem pretty nice so I'm just gonna roll with them.

I was thinking they'd be overly soft like the foams that come with the Yeti.

I stole the C.I. foams from my flat irons XL for the test run and they will be staying in them. I think I might just use the plastic stock wheels, they sure look good.

They sure seem like after a few runs they would be soft like the old gray foams.
