Losi Rock Carver Tires (mini pit bulls)

Donno how many of you guys seen these yet.

Losi has an officially licensed Pit-Bull tire on their hands called the "Rock Carvers"... they are modeled after the full size Rockers.

Here are some picks of mine.




mounted on my un-finished project

I wish the same. I'd like them to be 5.5-5.75" tall.

I bought a set, ran one course with them then went back to my Panther's. I wasn't very impressed with them
I just bought a set of HPI Rock Grabbers and they look like they'll work a lot better than the Losi's....

I dont think they will knock panther off there thrown, but they will look good on my scaler.

Made buy a guy that goes by Create-A-Crawler. These are one of a dozen or so sets. He doesn't like mass producing stuff and changes designs often.

so how tall are these things? I've ran the rock claws & I know the'yre a good tire I was just wanting something slightly taller. If they were similar to the claws only a little taller they might be ideal

I got a few runs on mine now. and I have to say they keep getting better I like the look of the tire they perform great. a 1.9 would be sweet to have but not if losi is gonna do it in that small size there using on the MRC.. I want around 4.25" for a 1.9..

They are ~5.2" tall and are comparable to the Claws. Really a nice alternative in an ever expanding category.
