    Interesting.. I am liking the wheels and tires. Not a big fan of the plastic front upper support for the chassis and steering posts to the diff housing. The description also says it has locked front and rear spool. Any clue what that means? The way it sounds is both front and rear differentials are locked spools. I couldn't imagine trying to drive and steer a rig with locked diffs front and rear.

    AFAIK HSP are a manufacturing company that makes cars to order for Redcat , Exceed stc.
    My DR is actually a HSP Bajer that came with alloy shock towers , an HPI filter and a few other bits and pieces that are upgrades on the Redcat.
    I think the "locked spool" refers to the centre diff that we don't really have.
    The bit I can't believe is that they're still using 2 different diameter tyres on a 4WD the same as they always have on Bajers , DRs and exceeds.

    Oh wow I didn't notice the different tire diameter still. Is the top plate on your Bajer plastic like this one is?

    No it's alloy.
    The best thing about the tyres is that the Rovan hexes are only about $3 each and fit straight on.
    No need for costly conversion kits.

    Yes mate.
    They fit straight onto the DR axles and you use your original pins and nuts.
