Crawler Innovations was the first to combine closed cell and open cell foam into one package with our Double Deuce and Lil’ Nova product lines. After we'd perfected those systems, we turned our attention towards the faster paced rock racer, heavy scalers, and basher genres. The Deuce's Wild Foam line was created. Using only the firm inner material, while focusing on the machined size and shape of the foam.
CWR-3004 was designed for use in the Pitbull Tires 1.9 Mad Beast Tire (PB9007NK) but will fit many other brands of tires as long as they are similiar in height and width. Examples are the Axial Racing Trepador and the Axial racing BFG Krawler.
These foams are much firmer than anything available on the market. They do not fold over under load whether it's high speed, heavy weight, or simply turning. These foams rely on a small air gap between the foam and tire. This loose area allows for the tire to obtain traction, while the foam supports the tire.
Approximate size: 4.25" Height x 1.375" Width (Remember that foam goes inside the tire and one must subtract lug and carcass thickness, plus any reinforcing from the overall tire height.)

I purchased Duece's Wild foams to use on a short course truck that I converted to 1.9" wheels for a more true to scale appearance. I went against the recommendation of using a foam that leaves an air gap to allow the tire to conform (for crawling) and instead went with these taller foams that filled out my 4.4" tires. Even though the tires were meant for a crawler, the foams keep them from ballooning at speed, and they don't roll under during high speed turns. I'll go out on a limb and say that the Duece's Wild foams made my 1.9" tires handle BETTER at speed than the low-profile 2.2/3.0 tire/wheel setup I had used before. Crawler Innovations' foams allowed me to get the tire/wheel look that I wanted AND the performance I'd hoped for.

Tho' somewhat stiff for my 10lb SCX-10
They are great if one wants no tire sidewall - bead roll
when doing sidehills or traveling at speed.
It's possible that they will become slightly softer
after a period of use.
Tho' possibly I have not used them enough to know.
I do like them... but it is more probable
that the 1.9 Double Deuce inserts would be softer and more compliant
when rock crawling and a user wanted more tire deflection and traction at slower speeds.
If faster speeds are desired by the user...
I'd believe the Dueces Wild are the foam inserts that one would want.
Either choice may be dependant on how one plans to use them...
Crawler Innovations offers the best selection of foam inserts
to fit any user's needs or wants.
So you can't go wrong if purchasing Crawler Innovation inserts.

i have these installed on my Axial Scx10 truggy, wrapped with R35 Axial Maxxis Trepadors non-vented. rig is 7.67lbs and it really woke it up on the rocks, noticed a huge difference 1st run out. i know they will only get better. normally i clean and prep tires for consistency, however this weekend i took him out dirty, and it just hooks. they really helped with side-hilling, and i got my turning radius back.
