    Any body tried to use 2.8’’ tires such as pro-line trenchers with extended body mount? Would like to know about difficulties of the conversion. Looking for something like this :

    If nobody did, I think I’ll just use Granite wheels and tires.
    Thanks!

    Have you switched over to the tires? If so which ones? I do notice the handling is not as stable as the kraton or Outcast.

    I used Kraton V2 hubs and 2.8's to make my Senton WideTrack awhile ago. Definitely have to raise the body. It's definitely more stable IMG_20161027_124042030.jpg IMG_20161027_124022010.jpg IMG_20161027_124208038.jpg

    Very nice Senton! Same look and stability I am looking for.
    On the Mega I don’t have the same body mounts than on you 6S. We’ll see if the ones I ordered fit.
    Thanks v

    I like the look with the tires. If this helps the handling than it’s a good upgrade.

    I am done! Here are a few pictures. I just used the tires from the Granite and ordered alloy adjustable body posts (see link above). Body posts make the body sit high so I just had to trim the body in the rear a little bit. IMG_3271.jpg

    Looks awesome. Did you have to use any different parts to get the tire to fit. If what parts and where did you buy them?
