definitely too small.


kenda K547 or quarter midget tires are a better option. get your diameter (rollout) up, can get a higher top speed and not be on the rev limiter by 300 feet....

18" and 19" slicks are what we run on the 1/8. Longer than that, American Racer is better.

You could also play with your gearing. We run 18-19 front sprocket and small rear (36-37-38). If your motor can pull a 19 front, play with the rear one because it's faster to change it.

Bigger front sprocket does put less stress on the output shaft, so it's a win/win.
