Is this truck compatible with the 4wd stadium class with spec tires? like the Hyper TTe

Or it may be compatible with the 4wd SC class? with spec tires again

or is it a completely different thing?

I have a feeling that even if you put short course wheels/tires on this it's going to be way too wide. The wheelbase might be correct though.

Only time i've raced a R/C Truck are in true RC Monster Truck racing events like the NRCPTA Worlds competition not sure of class spec's in regards to Stadium or Truggy class spec's Truck is 19" long center to center wheelbase 12.5" arm on truck are pretty long at almost 6" so rims would have to be right offset with the tires and rims i currently use my truck make it 17.5 " wide.. the truck stock is very almost scary light that's why does so well out the box on 2 cell li-poly ...

Actually this is almost the same wheelbase and track width as the 10TT.

All you have to do is slap a truck body on there and bam!

what turnbuckles did you pop off?
this car with a higher kv motor like a novak hv and a max pro esc on 2s will scream ilke hell.
no need for 3s or 4s lipo and on 2s you can keep the car light!

pop at least one of the steering links off at least ounce every time i run truck
but that partialy because like i said i don't run those super light rims it came with i run custom ppp alloy rims .... plan to even change the rims it currently has to a lighter set but bigger "clod sized rims & tires" that put weight back over axles also going to have beefier axles and drive-shafts made....which is one reason to upgrade esc for more power for added weight don't plan to go too crazy but don't like typical stadium truck or truggy look either ...


current tires & rims

the mad force kruiser donīt look a good performance car in my opinion.
