Maybe Ottsix would be interested in seeing how they work in a slightly different size???

The over all design and construction of the voodoo tire is great and I would prefer to make a cut n shut using just it.

The Rover sidewall is a good idea though. The bigger problem I see is acquiring rovers. Now that Hobbico bought the distribution rights to HPI & HB, I am no longer a HB dealer and finding HB tires has been impossible. I definitely don't want to make a cut n shut using HB tires at the moment. If you are reading this, consider it your heads up to stock pile some HB tires if you like them. If they make more, the price is going up.

Are you offering up some tires to be cut up? I'll do it.

Good points Eddie. Ive got Rover sidewalls sitting here though. I know what you mean though and again...those of you that really like the Rovers might want to consider buying what you can while you can.

That's the ticket. I'm going that route. To the butcher block we go...

Success. Good quality rubber from Ottsix. The CA held quickly and easily.

It's difficult to work with for sure, but it makes for strong glue joints.

Here is one of the many things that sets this tire apart from others:

No tire bead? Looks like the cut 'n shut is already under way.

Now I can switch between rovers or voodoo pins depending on terrain since they are both the same height. :-)

Very nice job on the tires. I like that you narrowed them as well. Awesome work.

Thank you for all the positive feedback. I'm glad that others can appreciate the time and effort to make these.

4 pounds 9 ounces RTR

I'm so excited to test and film with these. Unfortunately we are forecast to have bad weather tomorrow so it doesn't look good.
