Crawler Innovations was the first to combine closed cell and open cell foam into one package. The Lil’ Nova Foams have been around since the beginning and are made from the best compounds available. The Lil’ Nova Dual Stage Foam design is for all high-performance applications where grip and traction are essential. Available in a variety of compounds and sizes, the Lil’ Nova Crawler Foams are the perfect addition for your new tires.
Sold as a pair.
The Heavy Weight product line is for heavy rc crawlers and speed applications. Supports weights 10 pounds and heavier.
These Heavy Weight inserts feature a Competition Cut, closed cell inner foam, with a Medium conventional or open cell density outer foam. The closed cell inner foam is super dense, water proof, is not temperature sensitive and is extremely durable. The Heavy Weight inner provides increased steering response and eliminates tire roll over. The conventional outer foam is not temperature sensitive, but it is not water proof.
The "Comp Cut" inner has three grooves machined into the area where the outer and inner meet. The machined grooves allow for the outer foam to collapse into them resulting in a much more responsive tire. These grooves also aid in keeping the outer foam aligned with the inner.
The 4.50" is the Middle Size inner in the Lil' Nova Dual Stage foam line and designed for 1.9 tires and heavier rc vehicles.
Please watch our video for a complete explanation of the Lil' Nova Foam System.
Approximate size: 4.875" Height x 1.75" Width

I'm running a traxxas trx-4 79' bronco with several modifications. As a result, she weighs in at a little over 10 lbs. That being said, it will come as no surprise that the stock foams were about useless. My tires are 1.9" x 4.75", and I decided to try out a set of lil'nova 4.5" heavy-weight, dual stage, medium density foams. The difference was night & day! No more tire roll, no 'flat' appearance, and just the right amount of give, & sidewall flex. I'm walking up lines that were impossible before! I can't say enough good things. If you have a heavy rig, don't hesitate, get yourself some lil'nova heavy-weight's! You won't regret it!

I recently installed a set of the CWR-2328/Med foams in a set of VP 1.9 Method 105 wheels with Traxxas Canyon Trail tires and I could not be more pleased with the results. The tire tread conforms nicely to the rocks while CI WIDE foams completely eliminate all foam slipping on the wheel and provide an exceptionaly stable tire side wall which improves side hill performance. Great new product CI, Thank You!!!!

These foams worked great with my Pitbull Rock Beast XLs. A huge improvement over the stock foams. The shipping was crazy fast too. Thank you for the great product!!
