thank you.

the only things i can think off what it needs are bigger vhunkier wheels and a different shell.

would you say the trenchers for the 1/16 revo would be ok?

I tried several different e-revo tires a long time ago and found them to be way too big and heavy.

If you are trying to keep the vehicle nimble and quick, you need light and small tires.

If you are ok with more of a monster truck feel, and willing to gear down and go a bit more slowly, then larger tires might be ok. Personally I did not like how the vehicle felt with a lot more rotating mass.

many thanks

i really like my trucks to look mean and badass.

do you think the trenchers would be ok? obviously gearing down like you say. think its got 16t pinny on, i will go down to 15t to be on the safe side.

what do you think?

many thanks again

2.2" stadium truck tires will work and tend to be lighter than the Trenchers. Trenchers will work too. The extra weight will stress your drive line so it can cause bent drive shafts and broken diffs.

Here are some ST tire options.

I run those tires on my Lc Racing EMB-T, which is very similar to the Mini 8ight-T, and they work rather well but are a bit heavy. That are an all around good multisurface tire.

I also have some JConcepts Goosebumps that I run on it, they are much lighter than the Prolines and grip very well on most off road surfaces I would not use them onroad though.

This is the Jconcepts 2.2 Goosebumps on DE Racing Trinidad wheels.



This is the Proline Trenchers on Proline F-11 wheels.
