Default BRP Fun Wons, anyone can answer?

Saw a few deals on these, and the class I would like to try them out on allows open 1/18 scale. So I am thinking in truck body form, could be nice on carpet versus RC18Ts.

Anyway, since these have been discontinued for awhile, wondering if anyone could answer a few things:

- Are the wheels and tires basically 1/12 scale tires front and rear?
- Can you use any 1/12 scale wheel tire or are there wheels and tires out now that won't work?
- How durable is the drivetrain for very light duty jumps, say 12 inches max?
- What dimensions are the trays? (SC18 style tray)

Thanks for any info.

the tires are 1/18th scale and are made by BRP. You really must use them.
The chassis is made of Kydex and it is ladder style. It was designed for 4 aa cells as a battery pack. It is not suitable for jumping but the chassis/car is very durable and simple. It has a limited amount of travel (1/8") The steering uses z bent rod and a full size servo. It has a solid rear axle (direct drive)
The car is really suited for onroad racing.......

confirmed with Bud Bartos that the tires are 1/12 fronts for the fun wons

Also, would be using the SC18 style tray so its the model after the ladder design (assuming you mean the design similar to legends car)
