Default Losi Mini8-T chassis

So i think i will have a Mini8-T chassis.

What tires can i choose for it, rather then the stock ones?

Any help?

This is a "truggy" mini8.

Those HPI 26mm i have on my Mini Inferno 4s, the rally version. Good for speed runs actually!




Those first's Hoosiers are for 1:1, lol.... are you on meds?

As i know GRP's are only the same 26mm for 1/10 TC cars or the 1/8 version, that are for 17mm hex rims and not 12mm hex rims!

I have these on my Mini8 2s but this are not speed tires....and i think are smaller then the Truggy version.

-These are for the WR8 from HPI, a 1/8 rally car! :P

I have some, but i wanted from a good brand and belted!




-Not on buggy body! With truggy body seens better, not on pic!




-I had forgotten that i had those 64mm diameter / 26mm wide tires on the mini8 "they were smaller then the stock ones"

But for the Truggy i might as well think another thing.... hum...Just need the chassis in my front!!

0verkill used the 97mm diameter 1/8 GT GRPs for his Mini 8ight-T, check his thread. He used cheap China plastic hex adapters and said those became wobbly at high speed. Maybe Koval can make you some proper adapters that fit directly on axle.

Btw, those 64x26 mm tires look perfectly fine to me on the buggy. I'd really consider those kinda tires (but belted from GRP or whatever) on the pink one.

-That's exactly what i was thinkin!

I had did not saw that, because at that time i was in the Hospital, and did not read the threads after recovery. If i remember right i wrote something, but at that time i was already ill at home! Don't remember a single squat on those months! lol

Thanks for the tip, man! I know exactly what the wobbly in there and i think i might solve it, easy! Hope!

Here's some more talk on adapters for MERV, but since you have one of those, you can judge what would work for m8 too: https://traxxas.com/forums/showthrea...r-for-the-merv
