because the SNR and RS4 NMT are pretty similar I would suspect it to be possible. I have not had my hands on a SNT but I would think all it should require are some longer arms and NMT (off road) tires.

I'll see if I can find the link I once had for a similar project.

Ok here's the link

Looks like for off road he uses longer shocks in the upper holes of the shock tower. And dirt hog tires, the rest looks the same.

The Super Nitro wheels will also take standard 1/10 scale buggy rear tires. So your tire choice is much greater than just rally tires.

will buggy wheels fit onto the Nitro MT (RS4) ??? I need some used slicks that come with wheels and would fit onto my NMT.

HeY!
if you put on longer arms you'll need the longer dog bones, and also tie rods.

If the Nitro RS4MT uses 12mm hex drives, you can run the SNR wheels and buggy tires, but then you could just get some sweet street tread 2.2 truck tires and run them on 2" wide truck wheels.

I already have the truck onroads. I was thinking of a set of SNR/buggy wheels to use as drift tires (wrap them in tape). Then I would keep my on roads rubber and have fun with them too.

I dont have any pets, but those railroad ties that line one side of my driveway bite a hell of a lot harder than some little dog.

I love drifting so much, I just dont have the $$ to get into electric so I can do it properly.
