What’s up with the little tires?🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣🤣😎
 
I've had really good luck w/ both of those kinds of tires, for general bashing purposes- no high speed running. Great tread life & stoutness on both (until I hit a boulder or something that exploded one of my powerhobby rims this week) Very interested to see what you come up with here!🙂👍
 
I don’t think it will in the stock location. I was going to go mmx8s/1260kv with mine and that’s was a tight fit with the mounting bracket.
I will make it fit 🤣

Small tires mean less unsprung weight. Less unsprung weight means less wheelies.
Well I ran on 4S last night and it doesn’t wheelie like my kratons at all. At 16.5lb’s it almost 3lb heavy then both my XL kraton running same ESC/motor combo’s. I’m running belted trenchers on it. It will be interesting to see how you fit it in I can barely get the body in with 2-3S batteries and a max6/1650kv combo. The body comes down pretty low not a lot of clearance.

Turn servo mount sideways like swb cars it'll fit
I imagine keeping front end down will be the challenge. Excited about this one..

Yeeees😁😍
 
Here's my setup. For fit, I don't have any issues fitting my mmx8s in it. I also don't have any issues with doing wheelies. Since, this is not something that I want outta this r/c. LOL - ..and yes, that's what they used to call me. haha

If all else fails,an tires won't stay on rims.(I've never personally seen a buggy tire hang much over 75ish very long..)you could put zip-ties horizontal through spokes across tires keeping them on the rims..I did this in the snow before as added traction an was blown away how it kept tires from ballooning.kinda like tire chains they also added lots of grip..just a last resort idea.jd I hope this is gonna be a quik build cause the suspense of seeing you rip it is killing me brother..I know if anyone can pull this off you da man JD
 
Was able to put a little work into it while watching football today.

Are you going to add a windshield? Or close in the cabin at all?
Not to start. That may come if needed. I also thought about removing as much of the cockpit contents as possible, arms, guns, heads, etc, but have decided to leave them for now. I want to get a baseline rip in first and see how well it handles. Adjustments can be made later. I have some lipos on the way that should fit this layout better.
