Default Best tires for Short course on grass ?

I have a HPI BLitz 1/10 and have stock wheels and tires ..

It handles great on the road and dirt, but is there something better for the grass ? is seems so be a little slippery on there and spins alot..

Also, Can I go larger on the wheels and cut the body to compensate ?


Can anyone recomend larger than stuck tires that would fit a Blitz ?

Thanks

Default BadLands.

Try a set of Badlands, they have incredible traction on the grass. You'll have to confirm they make your size but I believe they do. Hope this helps.

+1 on badlands. watch your motor and esc temps on grass the added resistance can heat an rc up.

I run 3 and 4s brushless setups in short grass with my Blitz's and the tires I run are stock in front and 2.8 Imex H Squares on Proline Torque rims for the rear of the E Stampede ( keeps the tires under the body), then the Proline 2.2 Calibers stretched onto the 2.8 Torque rims as another option, finally if you want to trim the top of rear hub carriers slightly and move the camber links to a lower hole on the carriers you can run 2.2 rims which I use the old style Traxxas rims for the rear of the Rustler with Proline speed paws. These will shred grass, excellent traction...
