Default Ofna Ravager Tire/Wheel Question

Just wondering if I can put truggy sized tires and wheels on my Ravager? Do they bolt right on or are there things I need to buy to do a conversion? I just use it for a beater.

Yes you can, but your clutch will not last. Truggies have different gearing and that's why they're able to run lager tires.

Will I need wheel spacers or anything?

Also, I will change the gearing. What should I run for playing around?

Hmmm... not sure if the tires will clear when you turn... running 1/2 offsets should help.

You could get the center diff and mount from a Jammin X1CRT, it has ummmm... a 62 tooth spur gear I think? You could probably get by with just the spur gear and the spacers for the center diff mount, and longer bolts of course... but I'm not absolutely positive they will interchange.
